Have you ever experienced a situation that left you feeling disappointed, discouraged and frustrated? Whenever life throws me a curve ball, I turn to God’s word and search for scriptures that I can put into action to change my attitude and perspective. These 15 Bible Verses on discouragement, disappointment and frustration have given me and others the ability to fight the enemy and overcome.
Dear Dr. B,
I’m a man in my 60’s. Depression has been my Goliath as long as I can remember. I am a believer that has a fairly good grasp on Gods word. Yet I can’t muster the joy and happiness that the Word says is mine. I’m reading your book, “Hope Prevails: Insights From a Doctor’s Personal Journey Through Depression” and have the companion “Hope Prevails Bible Study.” At times, I’m out of hope. A saying I learned as a professional airline pilot describing a crash site was, “The place where the pilots ran out of altitude, airspeed, and ideas all at the same time.” I’ve been close to that place more times than I can count. Can I realistically shed this Goliath in my life?
Ready for Joy
Trials. Stresses. Difficult Times.
We’ve all been there, right?
Jesus told us in this life we would face trials. He told us to just expect it. But thankfully, He didn’t just give us a handful of bad news and walk away. He also offered the encouragement that even though the trials would come, we could maintain our peace and calm assurance because He has already overcome anything we would face in this lifetime.
