When You Need Encouragement

Joy. Encouragement. Peace. Strength. Provision. Contentment. Really? Paul is under house arrest in Rome. He has been beaten, shipwrecked, chased out of town, imprisoned, etc.  His circumstances wouldn't make us think of such things as joy, encouragement, peace, strength, provision/contentment. But God has promised that even when we don't feel like were doing our best, He is still working to complete His work and His best work is what is happening within us. Don't be discouraged by life circumstance; be encouraged. Follow Paul's example of one who was SO full of the promises of God that his life overflowed into the lives of many others.
