Discouragement

“We should welcome feelings of divine discontent that call us to a higher way, while recognizing and avoiding Satan’s counterfeit–paralyzing discouragement.” (Michelle D. Craig, Young Women General Presidency, “Divine Discontent,” General Conference, October 2018)

“Who of us can afford to waste our life in front of the mirrors of self-pity and discouragement? Yes, as the Apostle Paul admonished, we all need to ‘examine ourselves’ from time to time. We all need to repent, to recognize weaknesses, and more fully come unto Christ… But as we do, we will discover God-given strengths that we may not have otherwise known.” (Mary Ellen W. Smoot, recently released Relief Society General President, “Developing Inner Strength,” General Conference, April 2002)
