a little encouragement.
i want to encourage you today. wherever you are, if it’s glorifying Christ…keep going. lately i’ve been fighting against some rejection and negative thinking and i’ve realized…it’s not worth it. why spend my time focusing on the negative? why spend precious thoughts on people i can’t change, situations i can’t change, and some things in life that i just can’t change? however, i can change my thinking. i can change my outlook and keep pressing on.
whether you have had some setbacks, some different outcomes, or changes in life- God knows what He is doing even when we don’t. don’t give up and don’t give in to fear- keep going. what have you got to lose? i have thrown in the towel and given up the thoughts and opinions of others that used to drag me down. i ran around too long caring about what others thought of me that i didn’t take chances or any risks. now, i’m learning to take those risks for the glory of God. if i fail, i do. if someone surpasses me, so they do. if it’s not what i expected…it is what it is. but His love for you and i does not change. doing something is better than doing nothing at all…
“and the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.”
hope you are having a beautiful sunday!
