Just to put myself completely out there: I have been really discouraged lately. This has come in many forms in the last 3 weeks: lonliness, self-esteem issues, financial worries, future worries, bitterness, unneccessary guilt. And it gets really hard to trust that its just a "season" (the Christian catchphrase for "please Jesus let me not feel like this for much longer").
But in the midst of this discouragement and the constant battle to trust God's plan and His wisdom, I have found that there are a couple of things that move in my heart and lift my spirits. It's the things that on the days I feel like I like have no friends, no hope, no spark left they settle in my soul and rouse the joy.
Likely, we all have something that moves us to self-awareness and puts us in that place where peace just seems...reachable.
For me, it's the movie Elizabethtown, Caedmon's Call and James Taylor. No matter how dark the day or situation feels, Jesus somehow speaks through these things almost every time.
Are you in a place where you need something that soothes your soul? If so, do you have that thing that puts you at ease?
(If you don't, I would gladly recommend Elizabethtown, James Taylor or Caedmon's (especially 40 Acres, Long Line of Leavers, or In the Company of Angels, Vol. 1)). =)
Be at peace.
