As strong as we might feel sometimes, there are days when discouragement wants to creep up and kick our knees out from behind us, when we least expect it.
 
Today was a day like that for me. I started out encouraged, then was bombarded from left field.
 
It’s easier to stay encouraged on some days than on others.
I don’t think it always has to do with whether or not you prayed or read the word that day. People like to say that but I think that’s rather too simplistic.  Sometimes the device that comes against you is just sneakier and more fortified than usual.
 
When this happens to me I try the best I can to stay in a right attitude. Sometimes I succeed. Sometimes I fail. Sometimes I just feel really discouraged. But I also know to run to God.
 
I can’t control situations. Life drops troubles along with blessings. Some days or parts of the day are just highly challenging at times. I can’t control other people. I can’t control what they do to me or to others, or what they think of me.
 
Sometimes I can’t even control some of the feelings that want to well up when things or people are tough to deal with.
 
The only thing I can control is my attitude and where I run.
 
I always want to run to God. His arms are so comforting. I love that I get to run to Him.
 
Thank you God that we get to run to you.
Run to Him
