Color and Theme Project: Week 7 – Color: Blue – Theme: Discouragement
I claim this scripture to overcome discouragement:
“Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” Psalms 27:14
(I have an feeling that blue is going to be a difficult color… Well, I wanted to go to the beach today. After work I changed my route so I could catch the bus to the beach. As I was waiting for the bus there was the man who sells roasted coconut and the hot dogs. Is interesting that months ago I was observing the woman that also works there and I thought about taking a picture of them. It happen so that the man was wearing all blue and serving a man also in blue. I think this man and the woman that works there are very courageous… they are there throughout the year, always smiling and talking with people with such positive attitudes. Examples to follow! After that I did not go to the beach, well, I’ll go tomorrow.)
Today we start Week #7 with the color blue and the theme is discouragement.
I have to say that I was more courageous when I was younger… I think that learning about discouragement just came at the right time… I feel I would need lots of courage till I go back to my country and while I’m there!
Here is what Dr. David Jeremiah says about it:
“When we’re tired and things start to pile up around the house—whether it’s bills or laundry—discouragement can set in. The best advice to remember when fatigue makes us vulnerable to discouragement. It’s the simple but profound lesson the apostle Paul gave to the New Testament churches: Do not lose heart.
Are you an optimist or a pessimist? Your perspective will determine how you navigate through life’s decisions and will shape your attitude toward those around you. It is an absurdity of trying to solve life’s problems on our own and resorting to prayer only if our efforts fail. The key to a successful perspective in life: Go to the Word.”
Stay with us! God bless!
