Today's daily words of encouragement word Id Discourage: Which means to advise against, or to attempt to dissuade, or to dishearten. We all suffer from discouragement, especially if things aren't going the way, we think they suppose to be going. I battle discouragement myself, especially lately over my Daily Words of Encouragement, because of the lack of more traffic, I've been getting, sometimes, I wonder if my daily words are really helping anyone out there. When I started this religious thread, I did it because, I wanted to help my fellow man or my brothers and sisters in Christ, and things were going well; until I lost the my computer ability to perform,Like I use too.

Through all my trails and errors, I lot of my regular fan traffic. That lost kind of hurt my feelings, But I'm trying to recover, but sometimes I get frustrated and discouraged with the low traffic I have to my hubs. I do thank God for the regulars that still come by and read my daily words. I even have a few that encourage me and my efforts. I just wanted you to know that even the strongest of us, have our weak moment, only because we're human, but it doesn't mean we' ll give up; we have to continue to press forward toward the mark.

Yes we all suffer from discouragement, it seems to be a running thread for quite a few of us on this site.

But with God's love and grace we will all survive. I myself have been suffering depression and a feeling of loss since being laid off.

I've slowly come to realize that this is God's will, I'm taking this time to get my spiritual, physical and financial house in order.

Voted up, marked useful/beautiful. I will always be here for you my friend.

Your hubs are always filled with Scripture along with deep personal emotion and commitment to your followers.That's all we ask for and you deliver. God has something special in store--you'll see.

I can idenify with what you are saying dear heart. It became clear to me that I was writing for the wrong reason. My motivation needs to be obedience to the Spirits leading. Leaving the results in His capable hands. If it becomes clear that it is no longer the direction I should be going, I will also leave that in His hands. Until then I shall seek to glorify Him in my writing. You are a treasure and I look for a miracle!

Yes, we all do get discouraged from time to time Creativeone. Even our heroes in Scripture became discouraged, but as you said, we do not stay there.

For me, HP is a venue for writing ministry. I never look at numbers, for it is deceptive. I appreciate followers, but neither do I look at them for I know that just because some leave a comment does not mean that they benefited from the hub at all. Likewise many may read, benefit from it but not be inspired to leave comments.

People’s lives are going through constant change. Unemployment remains high and people are striving to survive. There are many legitimate reasons why our traffic fluctuates that have no relation to anything more. And, we both know that God is the REAL traffic sender, not us, right?

I believe God is reaching whom He chooses to reach through your hubs Creativeone. If it is only one person, is it still not worth the effort you put into your messages?

Yours in the bond of Christian Fellowship!

Forever His,
