Yesterday, Pastor Chris Taylor spoke on the topic of discouragement, something we all face in our lives.
Reading from 2 Corinthians 4:8-18, Elder Chris brought to light how the Apostle Paul went through many periods of deep discouragement, yet by having a noble purpose, he was able to push through and find hope even during his darkest hour.
"If you are a child of God, living in the world that we live in, you know that life is a struggle. As we go through these struggles in life, it will make us discouraged and depressed. Paul was fighting discouragement and knows exactly what we are going through!
It's natural to feel these emotions. If you go through struggles, how do you get out? By having a noble purpose. To really live a full and happy life, you need a joyful purpose!
If we go about this life reflecting on the sufferings of Jesus Christ, we will live a life of purpose." -Elder Chris Taylor
