Just in case you need some encouragement today.
We all need some encouragement now and then. It’s not that anything is terribly wrong, but we are just getting a little weary. Do you know what I mean?
Sometimes life is just wearisome. There’s always so much to do and yet much of what we do isn’t needed, is it? I’m just like you. I come to the end of a day and think, “Gosh, I’ve been busy every minute. I am tired.”
Often, on days like this, I have forgotten to continually turn to God for strength and I’ve forgotten to thank him that I am blessed with a full life. Maybe on our busiest days, we need to be the most grateful. It’s good to have full days. I get bored fairly easily so full days are good for me.
Are you like that?
But at the same time, I begrudge them at times. We are very fickle people. At least I am.
God is our strength
We are helped when we trust. How often do we think the help should come first? But it can’t, can it? We have to decide to trust and then the help comes. And sometimes all we need is some encouragement from God. And just being in his presence is encouraging all by itself.
In almost every healing Jesus did, something was required of the person first. Very often they had to at least ask. That’s what we have to do as well,
If you’re anything like me, I’m kind of embarrassed to ask for God’s help because I know full well, that if I’d been seeking his presence right along, I wouldn’t be in the predicament in which I find myself. Please tell me I’m not the only one.
Touch Base With God.
What do I mean by that? I suggest that morning, noon, and night, we set aside some time, only a few seconds is enough, to touch base with God for some encouragement.
If we schedule the time, we will be coming to God before the day gets overwhelming. I learned to do that by writing books and can say I am one hundred percent better at this than I used to be. I found the whole process of publishing and advertising overwhelming in the beginning.
But as I say, I’ve learned.
Your whatevers will be different than mine. And some days will be different as well.
We may need encouragement for relationships on some days, and on other days we need some pumping-up because the day is physically challenging.
Trust God today for the “whatevers“, and you will find help.
God bless and I hope you have a good day.
