The Bible is a great place for encouragement. Religion speaks its own language, but the Bible has a language of encouragement that is universal. There are many scripture references that can encourage, but I picked only these two for you to be encouraged today.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. James 1:12
There is a method to madness — my madness. As you can see, I am not sputtering out words from my own thought. I am supported by the Word of God. I can be confident in the advice I give, ONLY because it does not come from me — it comes from what I believe in, which is good.
Crown of Life
When we are living because we desire to understand what is good for ourselves and each other — than we are ALIVE! We are healthy beings. that have the crown of life. God is life. He fills our spirit with purpose and meaning. We are not just going through the motions, but we believe in a greater purpose for ourselves and each other.
I desire to pay-it-forward. I came from a place where I felt I was drowning. I often still feel like I am. Sometimes my job makes me feel completely overwhelmed. The only thing that keeps my head above water is my faith. Never give up! Never stop believing in good and in being a good person. This is who we truly are.
There are blessings to be found when we are challenged.
