Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Things and Stuff – Sowing Encouragement

No one is perfect… that’s why pencils have erasers.” Author Unknown

Today, by faith, I am sowing encouragement for you to be you. There is no one like you. Sure, we may stumble or make mistakes; that’s life. Growing and learning is a part of life. That’s how we mature and change the world around us! Nothing changes, when we sit by and do nothing because we think we have nothing to offer. Be you!

We tell ourselves so many things that contradict what the Word of God says about us.

Psalm 139:14 says “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

My simple but true acrostic is my way of encouraging you to be you. God created us different. Be you! There is uniqueness in each and everyone of us! Be you!

Let’s not mix apples and oranges, don’t focus on stuff that blocks you from being you. The past is, just that, the past. It’s a new year and by faith, we are realizing that we are fearfully and wonderfully made; and that each day, we get better! Praise The Lord!

The challenge is others judging; pfft, let them! Be you! Let’s just roll with it because many times, it is, what it is. Be you! People are going to think what they think, regardless, so be you!

Today, by faith, think on all the positive things about you and the things you like about yourself; all other thoughts are irrelevant.

As always, I welcome your thoughts.

Have a blessed day being you!

Too often we are brought down by what others think. It’s truly what our Lord thinks of us that matters. Thanks, Ann!
