Do Not Grow Weary

I do not know what your week holds for you. I do not know what blessings you will receive or what struggles you will battle, but one thing remains week after week, day after day.

This constant is God.

Today’s reminder is to encourage you with these great words from Galatians,

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9 (ESV).

Do not give up my friend!! You’ve got whatever comes your way.

The Path Less Traveled

You’ve got this Friend!

 “Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go; just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome.” -Unknown

You’ve got anything life can throw your way.

God has empowered you with the strength, determination, and endurance to battle what lays ahead.

Remember, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Psalms 46:1 ESV.

Take one step at a time and lean on God for your strength as well as your refuge.

One day you will look back on today and give God the praise for helping you get through it.

“Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12 ESV.

Hang in there and know, whatever you may be going through, it will not last forever.

You’ve got this Friend, you’ve got this! 💜

Turning Frustrations Into Determination

Are you having one of those days where you just wish something would go right?

Maybe you were up all night or you got up and your car wouldn’t start, or you just received a phone call from the baby sitter saying you need to leave work to pick up your sick child?

It doesn’t matter what you have struggled with today.

All that matters is that you are still moving forward.

Instead of allowing your frustrations to manifest in your soul and consume your entire day, try releasing all the penned up anxiety and turn it into the power of determination.

Use that extra adrenaline energy for something good and redeem your day.

You will feel better when you do.

You’ve got this Friend! 💜

Draw Close To What Inspires and Motivates You

I am here to encourage you today to do something that is inspirational, motivational, and makes you happy.

I challenge you to find a time to allow peace and harmony in your life today. At some point to allow yourself to breathe and find a place of rest. Even if it nothing more than taking a quick break at work. Take a quick walk. Listen to your favorite song or music. Try a few breathing techniques. It doesn’t matter what you do so long as you take the time to find that place of peace and harmony you need to get you through the day.

Dream big and reach for what motivates you. Consider that job promotion that would have scared you before. Consider that class you have always wanted to take, or simply reach for the stars. Dream bigger than what you believe is possible as that is where God will reach you and give you the strength to achieve them.

Lastly, have the courage to conquer your fears. Place your faith over your fear and reach for what allows you to grow spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. You will never regret what you strive for. You will only regret what you do not reach for.

Have a wonderful day!!

Be The Reason Someone Smiles

Encouraging Words Today

Are you struggling with feelings of discouragement and you are desperate to look up and find just a little joy in your life?

Try this simple gesture today,

“If you’re feeling helpless, help someone.” – Aung San Suu Kyi

It really does work. There is something magical about the ability to step outside of your own pain, frustration, and discouragement and help someone else.

The pay off for you will be the simple smile or the hug they give you in return for your gesture of help.

It does not have to be a difficult gesture, it just has to be one.

Think about opportunities where you can help someone.

    It can be as simple as a smile and a greeting as you walk into the gas station and hold the door for someone.
    It can be letting the person behind you who only has a banana check out before you.
    You can shovel your neighbors side walk for them.
    You can leave soup at your sick family or friend’s door step.
    You can get your friend at work a coffee or their favorite drink.
    You can leave a note with a simple smiley face in your loved ones or children’s lunch box.

The sky is the limit to how a simple gesture can change someone’s day, while changing yours at the same time.

My Friend, be the reason someone smiles today!

God Is Calling You Back

Encouragement Today

Today’s message is another simple one. Have you strayed from God?

Did you once believe, but decided to stray away to live your own life?

My friend, it is never to late to return back to the arms of your creator.

God is calling you back.

“”Even now,” declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” Joel 2:12 NIV

If this message is for you today, will you listen? Will you take the time now, no matter what state of mind you are in to return back to Him?

God’s message is clear! Simply follow, simply listen!

Finding Your Lost Joy

Encouragement Today

Is there something you like to do or something you enjoy but find you wait for someone to invite you because you would have not thought to do for yourself?

This how I feel about flowers. I love how a fresh bouquet of flowers can brighten up a room, but have never thought to buy them for myself.

I am not sure why I have always thought I couldn’t have them unless someone bought them for me, but I have sacrificed this joy my whole life.

Have you done this in an area of your life? Is there something that brings you joy that you sacrifice because you never thought to do it for yourself?

Today’s encouragement is a simple one. Do something today that you enjoy, but never thought to do for yourself.

I can be as simple as buying yourself a fresh bouquet of flowers or as difficult as going to your favorite restaurant alone to eat a meal you have always wanted to try or to go see a movie you have been wanting to see at the movie theater.

There is truly nothing wrong to do something you enjoy because you do not have to wait for someone else to fill this form of joy for you.

Courage Conquers Fear

Today’s Challenge

Is there something that you want to do in your life? Do you want to lose weight, run a marathon, or travel? Perhaps you are looking for a new journey in your life that will take you higher or farther than you ever thought you would go?

It does not matter how big or small it may be, I want you to consider reaching out and going for it!

“Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.” – C. Joybell C.

If there is fear or anxiety attached to it, I want you to challenge yourself to the find the courage that runs through your veins and push through the fear to catch the dreams you desire.

My friend, there is no better time than now to do it. Once you succeed at conquering your fear, you will be more empowered to do other things you never dreamed were possible.

You are strong enough, brave enough, and courageous enough to do this.
