Encourage Yourself In The Lord

Hey guys, so this is actually going to be a full length post but I’ve been thinking about something that I wanna share with you.

Encourage Yourself!

Sometimes we have desires, or goals, or dreams that we are so excited about and it just feels like something we need to do. And then we share it with a loved one or friend and their reaction pales in comparison to our enthusiasm.

It’s easy to get discouraged or feel like maybe they don’t think it’s a great idea or maybe they think you can’t do it. And a lot of times we allow these few seconds to destroy months and even years of dreaming, strategizing and planning.

Don’t do it. Don’t allow your dreams to be crushed by people who don’t have your foresight or vision. Everyone in your life is not meant to go on every adventure or journey that you take. And sometimes the ones you start with aren’t always the ones you end. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Every person has a season that they spend in your life, some are longer than others yes, but when one person’s season comes to an end it doesn’t necessarily mean something negative. It could just mean that whatever God wanted you to get/learn/grasp from your interaction with them has been attained and now its time not only for you to move on to the next step but for them as well.

Sometimes the support is minimal and the congratulations is grand and in those small moments you have to encourage yourself. Pat yourself on the back. Remind yourself of the dream. Remind yourself of why you’re doing what you’re doing. And press on. And if the congratulations come in the end, accept them with grace and know that what you’ve accomplished is yours and yours alone to the glory of God.

You don’t have to wait for anyone else to do it. Just look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself “I’ve got this!”

For more encouragement read the story of David in 1 Samuel 30 and see how he had to encourage himself in the Lord in a time when it seemed like he had no one else in his corner!
