Did you know that setbacks are actually part of the character-building process designed by God? In this message, Pastor Rick Warren discusses the causes of discouragement that lead to fatigue, frustration, fear, and a sense of failure. Find out what to do when you’re ready to give up, starting with reorganizing your life, refocusing on God, and resisting discouragement.
