Disappointed, discouraged, defeated?

I have a friend who has spent most of his life working with people in distress. He has a motto based on some words from the Bible that say: “We are often troubled, but not crushed; sometimes in doubt, but never in despair; there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend; and though badly hurt at times, we are never destroyed…” His motto goes like this: “Disappointed? – often. Discouraged? – sometimes. Defeated? – never!”
Life can often be tough, filled with disappointments and discouragement. But if our lives are built on the firm foundation of a living faith in God, we will never be defeated. We may be down, but we will never be out. “Who can separate us from the love of Christ?” says the Bible. “In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loves us…” “If God be for us, who can be against us.”
