Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord. Psalm 31:24 KJV

People often feel that they cannot go one step further. The pressure and worries of daily life start to take their toll. Lack of appreciation makes people feel like throwing in the towel! While it is good, right, and courteous for people to appreciate your input, lack of acknowledgement should never be used as an excuse for giving up. Your main goal in life should always be to please God and seek His approval. If you complete your daily duties with this attitude, you will be a true servant of the Lord.

No matter how despondent you feel, never forget that Jesus is with you in everything you undertake. In the most depressing circumstances, remember His example: He was victorious through all kinds of discouragement and oppression – even death on the cross. When you are tempted to give up, turn to your Savior. In Him you will find the inspiration to carry on.


“I will make them strong in the Lord, and they shall walk in his name,” declares the Lord

Zechariah 10:12 ESV
