Encouraging Yourself

Encourage Yourself

There comes a moment when you have to encourage yourself. Mainly no one may be around or it could be something that you might not want to tell anyone. Whatever the circumstances are you might just find you have to encourage yourself.

Often times it is not that easy to encourage yourself be it a loss of an important person, tragedy that has struck, or maybe not as drastic but something you are dealing with that seems hopeless.

I have been in situations that I knew I could not tell anyone but the weight of the matter seemed to overtake me. Encouraging myself was not the first thing I wanted to do but it was the thing I needed to do.

I have had things happen to me that I literally thought my world would come crumbling down. Dark and painful moments I have seen them. Again encouragement helped to walk through the hardest paths.

My biggest form of encouragement came from reading the bible. I drew from the verses that told me to cling to hope, to not give in because God would not give up on me, and no matter where I been it would determine the great future God had for me.

It was not easy at the time believing and walking through heartache and pain but continuing to press my way and encourage myself proved to bring a much brighter day.

No matter the problem(s) that are before you remember to persevere through and never stop encouraging yourself.

1Samuel 30:6- And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.
