Be Encouraged!

Today, if you are feeling lost when you thought you were found,
I encourage you to look to Jesus; the Author and Finisher of your faith.

Today, if you are discouraged, down-trodden, or depressed, look to Jesus;
He is the one who lifts your head.

Today, if you are drowning in financial problems, look to Jesus; He
will supply all your needs according to his riches in glory. The silver
and the gold are HIS. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. He will
make a way where there is no way.

Today, if you are feeling like you canít go one step more, look to Jesus.
He is your strength, and he will make your steps secure. Focus on Jesus;
It will help you stay in the race until the end.

Today, if you are physically sick, look to Jesus; He sent his Word to heal
you; He took stripes on his back for your healing, which is your bread.

Today, if you are emotionally, spiritually, or physically sick, look to Jesus.
When He walked this earth, He went about healing ALL who were oppressed,
sick, and diseased. He has not changed! He still heals!

Today, I wish to remind you of portions of John chapter 10, in which Jesus said,
(paraphrased) ďThe thief comes with three goals in mind: To kill, steal, and
to destroy. I am the Good Shepherd who has come to give you not just any kind
of life, but abundant lifeÖa blessed life that will overflow onto others.Ē

Today, if you feel you have been ripped off and robbed, know this: Jesus does
not rob or rip-off anyone. He does not kill, steal or destroy. He is the giver
of life, the one who lavishes you with all good things to enjoy; the one who
builds up and restores broken lives.

Today, I wish to remind you that Jesus came to this earth to destroy the works
of the devil. You do not have to live in bondage to the works of the flesh;
He came to open prison doors and set captives free. You donít have to walk in
darkness, because He is your light.

Today, be encouraged! Do not give up on Jesus, and do not give up on yourself!
Jesus thought you were worth dying for, so donít despair. Donít allow anyone or
anything to stop you from following JesusÖ..all the way.

This is my prayer for you,
Barbara

Hi Barbara, How right you are -- if we would only look to Jesus even in the details of our lives, we would cut to the chase on so many issues. Thanks for the encouragement.
