Down But Not Out

Sometimes life and ministry can feel like a boxing match.  It can be a bruising and bloody contest.  You can find yourself pinned against the ropes where you suffer one body blow after another and the odd jab under the belt.  Then the bell sounds and you shuffle back to your corner, not sure that you are up for another round.  In this study on discouragement, Philip De Courcy offers some spiritual smelling salts that will revive your faith in God and your hope in the future.  Let this teaching from the lives of David, Elijah and Nehemiah help get your guard up against discouragement and get you back on your feet ready to finish well.
