In the second part of our Defeating Discouragement Series, Russ and the team discuss how you can overcome discouragement and gain hope by finding your purpose. Though we can think that are purpose is wrapped up in what we do but the purpose of our lives is not our job, but changing other people’s lives. Even though we face different discouragement we should not lose hope because what you might think is discouraging, could be your destiny.
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling,  for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
Philippians 2:12-13 NIV
We all can make an identity shift by finding our purpose with God. Our lives and examples can give people hope when we work to find our purpose. Don’t be afraid to have a fresh restart and find the purpose God has for you while choosing what you love.
