When You Feel Discouraged: A Prayer for New Joy
"May you rise up today with a JOYFUL heart
because God is moving on your behalf,
even when you can't see what He is up to.
May you walk forward in faith, knowing
that He's got your back and He goes before you.
May you refuse to focus on your doubts and
points discouragement because you are
blessed beyond measure and called
beyond your wildest dreams.
