- Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10
Repost: Words of Encouragement can heal deep wounds when delivered gently.
I know. Trying to stay positive in times of trouble can be challenging at best. If nothing else, it becomes obvious during these moments that some motivational speeches are full of crap, only because life is just not that cut and dry.
As the case may be, there is no road map to living a life free of clutter. Clutter represents detours, distractions, mistakes, consequences, heartache, and failure, which every human will encounter on some level. The old cliche, “life is complicated” is more than a saying, it’s unadulterated truth! Every matter of significance in life is anything but “black and white” except Truth. Truth is everything that it promises to be even when it hurts. Therefore it is what it is.
Make no mistake, “there are times when the truth hurts so bad that choosing a lie seems right. However, in our hearts and minds we know that doing wrong can never be right. And, contrary to popular it’s all about me jargon, just wanting something to be something else is not enough to sway God. In reality, you need the great “I AM” walking beside you not watching you wallow in a pool of self-denial. Conversely, during times when the truth cuts like a knife “words of encouragement can heal deep wounds.”
His plan for your life makes healing a real possibility. Equally, the Father wants you to be eager to live. To be eager you must aspire to rise above your current circumstances if they are not pleasing in God’s sight.
With the Lord by your side there is no place to go but up!
Stay with me now. Nobody is motivated 24/7. Just like cars run out of and need gas, so do people. In fact, motivation operates like a car. “It needs fuel to perform.”Tweet
Here’s why. Man can not give you hope, deliverance or forgiveness but God can! Yes, only God can do that. That said, motivational speakers who fail to give God the credit for finding words to inspire and encourage cannot do it either. The rise they instill in self-esteem is only temporary because they speak in false tongues. Words of Encouragement can heal deep wounds when delivered gently.
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. 1 Corinthians 10:13
The good thing about leaning on God for strength, healing, and words of encouragement through prayer is that He already knows all about your sorrow. Feeling overwhelmed? God can take away all that you cannot shoulder.
The Bible is overflowing with Scripture specially designed to heal wounded hearts and lift your spirits. You don’t have to make a permanent home in a rut! The Father longs to see you in the light that He created to shine upon your life. But to get in that light you must start walking out of the darkness. To walk out of the Darkness
For the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.
Make this day the last day that sadness, depression, and hopelessness dominate space in your life. Scripture can lift you up out of the pit of darkness like no other spiritual force to change can.
Choose life over death, the kind of death that destroys families, and relationships, prohibits eternal life, and the gift of joy. Look, there is no way to sugarcoat how upbringing can negatively influence how we approach life, decisions, disappointment, and matters of the heart.
To conquer negative aspects of either one must be motivated to trust in the only Power higher than themselves. A man who requires motivation from other men to motivate others has no power of his own. God is the ultimate motivator. He motivates man, yet man cannot motivate Him!
Another thing is, upbringing influences how we approach life, decisions, disappointment, and matters of the heart. To conquer negative aspects of either one must be motivated to do so.
Where does your desire or lack of to get motivated come from?
Below, I have gathered some of the most powerful encouraging Scriptures in the Bible to help you help others turn their life around so that they can become motivated to live the life that God desires.
All you have to do is let them know that they can give whatever it is that’s causing them despair and anxiety over to God, right now, this minute, this moment!
Encouraging Bible Verses and Christian Quotes to Strengthen Your Faith
So, how do you stay motivated in a depressing situation? Whether the need to be motivated involves taking control of your life, restoring a relationship, or being better at the job you do, you need the Lord to get you motivated to do great things.
Some people say they don’t need anybody to motivate them to do great things because they are great. But, regardless of that rhetoric, no human can say they are capable of spiritually healing themselves. Furthermore, it is impossible to be broken, spiritually wounded and in great shape! Others say God plays no role in their rise to success.
But I say, that’s baloney or (Bologna)! In fact, the main reason for one to act or behave in a certain way is fueled by a strong desire to achieve, acquire, prove, demonstrate, or to cause a reaction from others. Not from God, but rather from man. If you don’t remember anything else in this post, remember this: Words of Encouragement can heal deep wounds when delivered gently.
