Discouragement. Something that I struggled with, just yesterday. It seems like everything can go just fine and then all the sudden I do something, that did not have the intended reaction. At this point I realized I had two choices. I could apologize and try to repair the damage or I can continue to let my mind review all the stupid and insensitive things I have ever done. Unfortunately, for a few minutes I did the latter and that is never a good path for me to go down. “You are not good enough,” “All of these horrible things will happen,” and so on, were the thoughts that were swirling in my mind. I really did not have a good solution, other than apologizing, but in these situations of feeling helpless, I am thankful that I have a Father who loves me, regardless of what I have done. He is there, giving me wisdom, when I seek and ask.
