Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

Day 43: Where to Put Your Hope

Psalms 43:5
Why am I discouraged?
Why is my heart so sad?
I will put my hope in God!
I will praise him again-
My savior and my God!


There are days when I feel discouraged... I'm not going to lie.  I'm sure there are days, times, events when you feel discouraged too.

It's ok to feel that way as long as we don't let it drive us down into a hole.  We acknowledge the feelings of discouragement then we need to think on this verse. "I will put my hope in God!"

There are times when I think, "Why am I discouraged?  Why is my heart so sad?"  Those are the days that I have to check myself.  I have to take extra time to count my blessings.  Take time to thank God for everything I have--- not everything I want.  To thank him for being with me-- not asking where he is.  When I thank God... when I count my blessings... things don't seem so bad.

God has a plan for us even if we don't see it.

He will take care of us.  We should praise him for that.

God Bless You!



  1. Thank you Kelly for posting this today! This was just what I needed right now I am in a 'funk' God Bless.

  2. Ah, I'm sorry you are in a funk. They are no fun. I get in them from time to time, but then I thank the Lord for everything I have. It really does help. I'm glad this helped you :)

  3. Kelly, you're exactly right! When we start counting our blessings and begin to praise God, suddenly our problems don't look so big compared to our BIG God. Many blessings!

  4. Hi Kelly - I love that scripture especially when I'm feeling down. Because if David was a man after God's own heart and felt that way, then I too can have a hope, a hope in Him
    God bless

  5. That's true. Sometimes we see these big names in the Bible and forget they were people too.. with issues just like us.

  6. Thank you I think we all need this reminder. There are many nights I have to put myself to sleep saying Let Go Let God. I am so grateful that I have him and know him as times often get tough there is always a peace in knowing God.
