We all need encouragement from time to time. All of us at some time or another face a crisis when everything seems to fall apart and/or as of nobody is there to support you when you needed the most. There are times of discouragement when things go wrong even when we are trying to do right.
I love the Scripture. In 1 Samuel 30:6, when David was distressed, the Scripture says that he "encouraged himself in the LORD his God." Instead of waiting for someone to encourage him, he encouraged himself. Nobody encouraged me to write a blog. Nobody tells me to keep on writing even when it seems like nobody is reading it. Nobody can fully appreciate hard work, commitment, energy and time spend that you have poured out to keep the group momentum alive. Nobody asks for your wellbeing, finances, challenges. Nobody, fully. So, what you have to do? Encourage yourself! Better, like David, encourage yourself in the Lord. Amen.
THINK BIG. START SMALL. GO DEEP.
