Need Some Encouragement?
No matter what I think, I’m accepted and worthy.
Psalm 139: 13- 14 ~
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
God loves me with a love that is increasing and overflowing.
1 Thessalonians 3:12-13
That’s right, because I, your God have a firm grip on you and I’m not letting go. I’m telling you, ‘Don’t panic, I’m right here to help
Isaiah 41:13 – The Message
I loved you at your darkest.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart.
You will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart.
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
Matthew 6:26 & 27
Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
Who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
Who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.
My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
