Dr. Peale shares that you can shake off depressive thoughts and handle any situation because you are a creation of almighty God. Philippians 4: 13 says, “I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me.” You can get rid of discouragement unless you want to hang on to it. One way is to be quiet and face it. He quotes Robert Louis Stevenson, “Quiet minds cannot be perplexed or frightened but go on in fortune and misfortune like the ticking of a clock during a thunderstorm.” Never panic, be calm, think. Never dramatize the situation. Affirm quietly that with God’s help you can handle any situation.
