Focus On The Absolutes
Discouragement doesn’t come on all at once. We don’t normally get discouraged after one disappointment. It takes time for continual disappointment to turn into discouragement. You may experience disappointment, but you still hang on to hope, and you still have your confidence. Over time, however, you can start to lose hope and confidence both in yourself and in the principles that govern life. But if you can keep your mind on the absolutes—the things that never change—then you can rebuild your life no matter what happens to your circumstantially. Your circumstances are subject to change. The absolutes are not. Therefore, focus on the absolutes.
