The Jesus way is the only way ...... He encourages us every day.
Jesus is the answer.
What will bring meaning to your life? What will make the difference in your life? What will bring you incredible peace? What will bring you blessing after blessing? What will make you think about others instead of yourself? Who will make you want to be a better version of yourself now and always. One single name and five letters will do all of these things for you:
J E S U S
He will do all of these things for you and most importantly He will save you. We sometimes go searching for something that is literally right in front of us. Ask yourself what saves you? The answer is Jesus. Ask yourself what encourages you? The answer is Jesus. Ask yourself who should I model myself after? The answer is Jesus. All of the answers are right with Jesus. So the next time you go searching for anything remember Jesus. He has your back. Who better than Him to have your back? He covers your sin ... past, present and futures ! Wow! Talk about inspiration. Talk about encouragement. Talk about role model. Could there be any better? You could not have a bigger fan than Jesus Christ. You cannot have a better friend than Jesus. Sometimes I will say to my wife, "I am your biggest fan." Yet, I stand corrected because I am her second biggest fan. Jesus is number one. He always is. When humans will let you down and they always will but He will never let you down. His love is unending and quite contagious. I strive ( and mostly fail) just to be a little bit like Him. For in doing so we reach a place that becomes about Him and no longer about us. You really can love your neighbor. It is such an incredible blessing. I have so much work to do but I feel confident in my love for Jesus and I know and feel how much He loves me. I am so encouraged by our savior. So very encouraged. Here are some verses on encouragement:
Psalm 119:114 You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your word.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
John 14:27 Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
1 Peter 5:6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
Psalm 120:1 In my distress I cried to The Lord and He heard me.
God bless always.
