Pass Along The Encouragment

by Tereciah on December 20, 2012

Isaiah 41:10 – Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Recently I received a blessing.  It was so simple, so pure, so uplifting that I wanted to share with you. I had a conversation with a woman on taking care of elderly parents.

For those of you that are unaware, I have an older father although still full of spunk, has a few health issues, which one is Prostate Cancer. I truly wear many hats and in the midst of being human, I have my moments where I can be impatient, grumpy or stressed with taking care of his needs. Not always, but sometimes. I did say I’m human!

My blessing was through the encouraging words I had with a random stranger at his hospital appointment this morning. She mentioned taking care of her mother who had Alzheimer’s, although her mother did not raise her as a child. This wonderful woman mentioned how God gave her the strength to persevere, the patience to maintain and the ability to take care of her mother for 10 years before her death. She encouraged me!

I thought of you and wanted to send a quick note of encouragement. You are not alone on this journey. God sees your tears and knows all about your cares. You may wonder how are you ever going to do, (or even start for that matter!) the assignment God placed on your heart with all the things you have to do and roles you maintain – wife, mother, caregiver, faithful church-goer, business owner, corporate America worker, and on and on. But God will give you strength wisdom, perseverance and the ability to do what He has purposed for you. Just trust Him.

Don’t allow “life” to get in the way of you manifesting your purpose and walking out the manifestation. Do something purposeful today. Write a blog, register a business name, secure your business url, call that contact. Whatever it may be, just do it. I encourage you to be strong and don’t give up. Sow good seeds and watch as a harvest returns to you tenfold!

Encourage someone today!

To your greatness!

Psalm 55:22 – Cast your burden on the LORD, and He will sustain you; He will never permit the righteous to be moved!
