Almost! Man, you were so close! You almost wrote a book. You almost made a decision. Then you almost acted on it. You almost called your ___fill-in-the-blanks___. You almost volunteered to help someone. You almost gave up that bad habit. You almost joined the gym and got in shape. What else did almost change your life and that of others? (more…)

The past is over. Get off those chains that hold you to your past so you can walk to your promised land.
You know what to do, knowledge has been given to you, ideas, opportunities; but all you do is considering? Looking at your past? Your “history” is something the world looks at to evaluate your potential. God does not operate like that.

I haven’t been able to post as frequently as I wanted to but I am not too worried about that. My job has demanded more of my weeknights and weekends and at times I got frustrated. I am dedicated to serve God and He has shown me at my job how to serve Him there, as well.
When I am in His word and am praying or listening, He provides me with everything I need in a particular situation to get my head back up and be strong, to overcome, continue, and help others do the same. When that happens, I share it, because this is what this blog is all about – encouragement. Encouragement for every moment that you need it. If I could give hugs on this blog, you would get one every time (I’m one of those people).
Other times, the encouragement doesn’t come in a big message. It can be as simple as
“This is my command – be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God I with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9, NLT)
There you go! Being in His word prepares for moments where you lack energy and courage and a single verse can get you back on your toes. That’s what I will now share as well as “boosts” (like an energy boost). Yes, you can find exactly that in your bible, but since you are reading this blog that shares the encouragement I received from our Heavenly Father, I will share it here and urge you to look it up in your own bible version.
