In this episdoe of Life Hurts God Heals, Pastor Chris deals with discouragement. There is plenty of it to go around today. The world is pretty messy and getting more messed up by the day. What is the strategy to develop courage in a discouraging environment? There are forces at play in our nation and in our world which are constantly interfering with the “normal” we are trying to create. Is there hope? Yes. But often we put our hope/faith in the wrong things only to find ourselves ‘discouraged’ once again. Too many discouragements and we end up depressed and depression is never healthy. Let’s consider the answers of the world and compare it to the answers we have in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
