Yesterday a stranger reminded me of the power of encouragement. This man had been shot in the head at close range many years ago and lived. He talked about how we need to encourage ourselves when going through a time of challenge. As we remember how our faith delivered us in the past, our spirit gets stronger, overshadowing the doubts and fears that discourage us from pressing on. The Angel of Encouragement is always waiting for an invitation. Christ Jesus said, Be of good cheer for I have overcome the world. Today if you find yourself struggling with a longstanding issue, take time to reflect on how far you've come and know that Presence is still within you ready to help you meet every challenge in victory.
Love and joyful blessings,
