The Power of Encouragement

Have you ever had one of those day where you doubted yourself?

Maybe you’ve been pouring your heart and soul into a project, but there have been no results.

And maybe there’s no one there to “pump you up” or root you on to success.
Did you know that at times like this, you can absolutely encourage yourself.
Self-encouragement is not narcissistic. We read that King David did it all the time.

Today if you are struggling with self doubt or discouragement, do a little self-talk and remind yourself of all that you have accomplished.

Still having trouble with that? just pretend you are encouraging someone just like you. What  would you notice about their achievements?

Would you ever talk down to them and tell them that they were a failure?

I think that it’s time that we start showing ourselves the same respect that we would show
someone we loved.

After alll, the Bible says to love your neighbor as you love yourself.
Yes, scripture commands us to love ourselves. (you can’t give what you don’t have).

So today I would like to encourage you to encourage yourself in the same way that you would encourage another.

You are awesome!
(truly)
Now go add to that list of adjectives, and spend the morning building yourself up!
