Some Ideas For Encouragement And Motivation
"If you feel that your life is on hold and time has passed you by... God is waiting with you."
You can line up your mouth and heart with what the devil tells you, or you can operate in faith by lining your mouth and heart up with God's Word, pointing towards His blessings.
When you feel like hope and faith is gone, God uses such times to get your attention, call you back to Himself and encourage you to lean on Him, your unfailing source of strength and wisdom. Take your
problem to the Lord and ask Him for a solution; He won't disappoint you.
Learn the power of patience.
When the Holy Spirit gives you direction and puts a goal or dream in your heart, it's easy to be quick on the trigger and want it to happen overnight. Timing is crucial. And it's under God's control,
not yours! Waiting for God's timing isn't wasting time; it's essential in developing two qualities you need - faith and hope.
What's your hope in? Good luck? The economy? Boyfriend/ Girlfriend? Pastor? The doctor's prognosis?
As long as your hope is in anything other than God's unfailing love and goodness, you'll wrestle with uncertainty. God has planted certain things within you, and you must wait for them to take root and
grow. And the unresolved issues of your past can undermine this process. With God, a delay is not a denial. God answers every prayer. The key to success in God's Kingdom is to work like it all depends
on you and pray like it all depends on God!
You were created to be successful, to accomplish your goals, and to leave your mark on this generation.
You have greatness inside of you! The key is to get it out and not let the cares of this world distract you from your God-given mission.
You already have what it takes to win.
You are talented enough, you're smart enough, you're experienced enough. You have the right personality and the right looks. You didn't get shortchanged. You're
not lacking. You are fully equipped. The question is, what is holding you back? The best way to face the uncertainty of tomorrow is to put your full faith in God, remain flexible, and consider your options as events unfold.
We all need encouragement in this life.
We all need to stop and examine our thoughts, words and actions. We all need someone who will spur us on in the direction of our dreams and goals. We are all growing, we are all learning, and we all
have the potential to increase in every area!
I always welcome obstacles and try to solve them in an awesome manner.
Never treat obstacles as problems but treat them as a game and in the such game, play like a Winner because YOU DESERVE IT. Don't lose your sense of idealism. Don't let day-to-day difficulties discourage
you or allow life's disappointments to get you down.
At every age and stage of life there are obstacles and advantages, trials and triumphs.
It's up to you to make the most of the positive and not let the negative derail you. You're only 'old' when your regrets take the place of your dreams.
For every disadvantage there is a corresponding advantage.
There's hope in every hopeless situation...
There's a message in every mess.
There's promotion after every examination.
There are opportunities in every difficulty.
There's a great grace waiting for you in every disgrace.
You don't have to cry over your failure... it is reversible.
That you mistakenly spilled the milk on the floor is not the end of life... as long as you still have the cow, you will make a better one. That you failed once..., twice..., or many times, is not enough to label you as a failure. It's only the event that failed... you are not yet a failure until you admit that you are one.
Too many people cry too much about missed opportunities, failed plans, and collapsed business, to the extent that they close their eyes to new and better ideas.
Where you are right now is not your end stop... it is only a bus stop.
Weeping may endure for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. The very evidence that your predicament will never be permanent is the fact that you were not born with it. Everything with a beginning surely has an end.
As long as you still have what God put inside you, you will be celebrated where you were once tolerated. New doors will surely open for you. Greater opportunities abound. Your success is guaranteed in HIM.
You are sure to rise seven times higher than you fell. You will fly where you once crawled. There is hope of a magnificent tomorrow for us all.
