Encouragement-To Encourage Others
Encouragement is so important and so many of us need it today. My hope for this area is to give some weekly encouragement to those in need of it. I cannot be sure I will be able to due to my own struggles with time management and children. Let’s face it. On a regular basis, I am a mess. But that is one thing that makes me an acceptable person to encourage others.
So along those lines, if I don’t have it out exactly on time, I am sorry. However, I have a new strategy for getting my work done here on my blog. This is going to be funny. Probably only to myself. It’s the little things that are funny to me, even at my own expense.
Having more than one place to work
I have started putting the tablet on the table with the laptop so that my two-year-old can play his ABC Mouse while I am working. I also have put my go-to bag in the bedroom next to my side of the bed. Because I have young children, I often find myself going to bed when they do.
Clean and Prepare the area
Also, I got the easel out of the corner and cleaned the area next to the table where I sit. That way we can both work. I bought it while I still had the day job and kept saying I needed to get it out. How do you get something out if you don’t know how to use it. Ideas were not flowing and I wanted them to. I think that is what gave me a kickstart. I am preparing to put in the work. This area did have a bunch of stuff on the floor preventing me from opening the cupboards. Now it is set up as a second workspace.
Before I quit the day job I was working super hard and putting in an hour before work every day. I started at six. So you can imagine the time I had to get up to make that happen. Now I am finally getting enough sleep. For some reason I have been getting confused about my purpose and why I started. Not Cool. So I am making preparations to be of good use. I have a testimony and it should be used to encourage others.
So, How Do I Encourage
I really feel like I should be encouraging people. But like everything else I’m doing on here I have absolutely no idea how to do it. Just to warn you, my encouragement to myself comes from my God and his word out of the Bible. I am so glad I have a Savior. Seriously I am so imperfect. It’s a good thing I have Jesus cause I can’t even breathe without him. I have stepped out and the rest is up to him.
That being said, a lot of the encouragement I give might come out of my bible. I don’t see any other way to give it. It may be everyday lessons that I have learned over the years. I’m not sure and this is totally new to me. But many of my lessons began long before I knew Jesus. His healing has led me here but he can and does use all of our life experiences to help us and others.
