Don't Lose Heart: Gospel Hope for the Discouraged Soul

4.33  ·  Rating details ·  18 ratings  ·  9 reviews
A fallen world is full of reasons to lose heart. From the large-scale tragedies of war, famine, and natural disasters, to the more personal tragedies of broken relationships and broken dreams, it can be difficult to avoid discouragement--even for the believer. And yet, Scripture calls us to a life of hope, based not on wishful thinking or avoiding our problems but based on ...more

David Steele
Everyone faces discouragement, some more than others. More extreme examples of discouragement have many faces - chronic anxiety, fear, panic attacks, and depression are only a few manifestations of discouragement. Jason Meyer addresses the epidemic of discouragement in his book, Don’t Lose Heart: Gospel Hope for the Discouraged Soul. The author writes, “Discouragement can be defeated only when the full truth of everything that is for us confronts and conquers the half-truth of fear and despair.” The ...more

We do get discouraged when life isn't the way we think it should be. We question what God is doing and why He is allowing this to happen.

Meyer wants us to see the bigger picture. He doesn't ask us to pretend the problems are not there. Rather, he wants us to embrace what is truly real - the One for us is greater than the one against us. Meyer knows the reasons to take heart are harder to see than the reasons to lose heart. Even though the tangible is before us, we must by faith belie

Great read on dealing with faintheartedness in the seasons of life

In his new book, “Don’t Lose Heart: Gospel Hope for the Discouraged Soul,” Jason Meyer does an exceptional job of illustrating why our hearts can often grow spiritually faint – and how we can be restored to biblical hope in our souls and renewed in our minds through the Word of God.

Published by Baker Books, his 160-page book is a treasure trove of biblical insight laid out in two parts: How to fight for sig

The winter season causes me to slow down, think, and get ready for the new year. But this sometimes brings me anxiety as I worry about the future.

Thankfully, Don’t Lose Heart by author Jason Meyer, Pastor for preaching and vision at Bethlehem Baptist Church and associate professor of New Testament at Bethlehem College and Seminary, is here to help by offering gospel hope for the discouraged soul.

In Chapter 1, Meyer takes us to Isaiah 40 to help us see th

How do we not lose heart in a world of natural disasters, war, famine, broken relationships and broken dreams? “Don’t Lose Heart” Gospel Hope for the Discouraged Soul is encouraging. The author separates the book into two sections, the first is How to fight for sight and includes what to do when you feel overwhelmed, defeated and worthless. Part is: How to defeat despair: What to do when the past paralyzes you, when the present disappoints you and what to do when the future scares you. The autho ...more

Don't Lose Heart is a quick, inspiring, and refreshing read. It's a breath of fresh air in times of discouragement. Jason Meyer separates this book into two parts. Part One focuses on how to deal with feeling overwhelmed, defeated, or worthless. Part Two focuses on dealing with discouraging feelings about the past, present, or future. The author uses Biblically sound advice to help readers through difficult circumstances. His advice is not just words on a page. It is useful information that can ...more
Timothy
An interesting self-help, spiritual book concerning the issue of discouragement. The author expertly uses passages from the Gospels, authors and personal experiences to help readers that are discouraged or depressed. Depression and discouragement should not control your life and problems and stress should not paralyze you. Look at the big picture and respond appropriately knowing that God is there. Mr. Meyer's book does more than just give advice. It gives the reader, for lack of a better word, ...more
