Encouragement blesses the soul…

Do you need some encouragement today? It’s been a very difficult year and it’s two-thirds over and the future is still uncertain.
Things may not have worked out the way you planned, the way any of us planned; but it is still possible to remain hopeful.
I’ve heard a lot of people say that 2020 is cancelled and life will begin again in 2021, but what if it doesn’t…. what if nothing changes?
Will you be prepared?
We can’t waste time waiting for the future, we have to prepare for it. We have to be proactive, but sometimes discouragement stops us from moving forward.
We’ve all had times in our lives when we needed a little encouragement, a little validation and a lot of hope.
Encouragement blesses the soul, increases your confidence and helps you to develop the courage necessary to keep going.
Things may not be working out the way you hoped for but be encouraged.
There is hope.
Remember: We can’t go back and restart the year but we can start today and make a new ending.
You’ve got this! Take it one step at a time, you will make it through.
We are resilient, people!
We all go through periods of testing and trials, these challenges of life may slow you down but don’t let them take you down!
It’s okay if you get discouraged, it’s okay to be sad and disappointed, just don’t stay there.
Start where you are taking tiny steps towards your personal goals and don’t give up just because things are hard right now.
Life can be difficult, but remember a bad season doesn’t equal a bad life.
Keep pressing forward at your own pace and you will reach your destination, whatever that particular destination is for you.
You may feel like giving up but don’t. Think about all of the reasons that you should continue to keep moving.
Maya Angelou once said: “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”
Allow me to be your encourager today.
So…
Be encouraged and be an encourager. An encouraging word can be a powerful force.

Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing. –
1Thessalonians 5:11

Sending a (((big socially distant hug))) out to anyone who needs it today, along with a little encouragement.

Be encouraged, remain hopeful and continue to press on.

Blessings,
