- Encouragement for this Anxious World
Written By: Amy Boone “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits.” (Psalm 103:2). The New Living Translation interprets it this way: “Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things He does for me.” Lately, people have been asking each other: “What is happening to this world?” I have heard others say that “Things have never been this bad before.” and “The world has gone crazy.” Granted, these are hard times. We are having problems that we haven’t had before. Granted, a lot of bad things have happened at the same time. Some are so grievous and our hearts are heavy. Anxiety and fear seem to have taken a hold of our lives. But, we must never forget all His benefits. In this Psalm, after David mentioned not forgetting the benefits, he spends the whole Psalm telling us what benefits we have as believers. Do you know all the benefits you get as a follower of Christ? *Forgives all our sin and removes our transgressions from us *heals our diseases *renews our strength when we are weak *is compassionate and gracious *slow to anger, and abounding in love *will bring justice to the oppressed *His love for us is as high as the heavens *wants a relationship with us and has made His way known to us Have we focused on the bad and not all the good things He has done? Some of my friends and I have begun to text Bible verses of encouragement to each other. Do this in your Women on Mission group and to other friends and family. It will be a huge encouragement as we encourage those in our community. Verse 19 says,” The Lord has prepared His throne in the heavens; and His kingdom rules over all.” He is still on the throne of this world. I am so thankful for His presence in my life and for all the benefits His grace bestows on us. “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.”
- A New Hope
Written By: Meredith Wilson The other day, I was talking to a friend regarding career news she had been waiting to receive. I made a comment on how waiting is frustrating, especially regarding such a big decision. In a calm voice, she replied, “Well every day is a new hope”. During periods of waiting and hard seasons, we can tend to view it as God is delaying us. It causes discouragement. We tell ourselves that we will never be able to do _____ because of _____. This eventually leads to a spiral of worry, anxiety and loss of hope. However, our seasons of waiting are intentional by God to create hope in us through our trust in His good works. Even when you think about it, waiting brings hope if our intentions are in the right place. Romans 15:13 states, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Hope does not come from our own experiences, but our trust in the power of the Holy Spirit. This is why our quiet time is so important because it is the act of making ourselves available to be filled with His joy and peace. Spending time with Jesus gives us the opportunity to learn from Him, but it also strengthens our hope. If you are in a season of waiting or discouragement, remind yourself that God is preparing you for something bigger that is currently unimaginable. While we are hoping in God, we can take comfort in the fact that we never have to go through life alone. Each day is a new day to be kinder to someone, to take better care of yourself, and to draw even closer to Jesus. We can still live our life to the fullest even if we are in a hard season. Like my friend said, a new day is a new opportunity to be filled with hope of what is to come. This hope, my friends, is a type of hope that can only be lived out by our trust in the one above. So, let me ask you this, which type of hope are you living out today?
- He Gives Strength
At times, it can be hard to find our inner strength. When we feel discouraged, defeated, or caught up in the chaos of our life, we tend to doubt our capabilities. We get so tangled in our circumstances that we forget who is sovereign over it all. Psalms 29:11 states, “The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace. On those tough days, do you pray for strength? Do you allow God to give you that strength? If we are still trying to control our circumstances, even while praying, we are limiting the possibility of how God can work into our lives. If life were to be perfect and easy, then we would have no need for a God. It’s okay to be honest with Him and ask for strength. Allow Him to work in you and through you. With Easter approaching, we should remind ourselves of the one that took our burdens first. The one who sacrificially gave his life so we could live ours. The one who conquered the grave with strength and forgiveness, so that we can live our lives seeking to know God more and more. This type of strength and grace that Jesus portrayed on the cross is the reason why we are living today. Let this symbolic act of courage inspire you to show some grace to yourself as well. God knows we are not perfect and just wants us to make ourselves available to Him. It’s okay to ask Him for strength. Through prayer, seeking His face, and giving Him control, that strength may come easier to you than you think.
