Joshua 1:9 ” Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Fear will stop us in our tracks for a bit…but discouragement is much more devastating in the long run, especially to our psyche.  Discouragement will eat at our self-confidence, break our spirit, and dash all hope.  When we allow discouragement to creep in…we’re suddenly intimidated and demoralized to the point of giving up.  That’s when we need to stop… and  remember this scripture and its directives.
