Topic: Encouragement (02/23/12)

TITLE: More Than Worthy
By Denise Isaac


How's everybody doing as far as their progress towards their peace, happiness and destiny, while staying encouraged to know that it shall come to pass? I know a lot is happening around you but you must realize that you too must keep things happening and continuing in the faith. There is no excuse or room for doubt, regardless how dim or dark your situation may be or seems. Do not let the spirit of discouragement overtake you, for it is a disguise having you to believe that it is what it is, and that you must submit to it and remain as such. Your future is as bright now as it was yesterday and nothing can change or stop that except you. The circumstances that surround you do not determine what your future will be or what the next day will have to offer you.

Be encouraged today and everyday of your life no matter what, for it is you that has the final say so over your life besides your Father. Encouragement takes a lot of effort and the strength; and the most effort used to remain hopeless and discouraged. You press pass the barriers of thoughts that tells you, it will not happen for me, or the walls of limitations PUT UP AGAINST your well being and success, WILL NEVER COME DOWN. You have a purpose to fulfill for yourself and it should not be altered for anything or anyone, until you have obtained it, by any means necessary, which should be of the righteous approach. There are no blockages to your holistic wellbeing except you permit its effect. You have the power to block, cast down, shut down and destroy anything that has come to deter your joy, peace, happiness and successes, no matter what. You fight the good fight of faith.

Do know that your own encouragement is just as vital and warranted as anyone's encouragement for your life. You are more critical and the best critic of yourself than others and sometimes worse. You must bill up the stamina to maintain a sense of liking yourself first, and to know and believe that you are just as worthy as anyone else to be encouraged, peaceful and blessed. You are one of God's master pieces that must be exhibited before the people (world), as well as to your nay and gainsayers, to see that you have arrived to the place of your season and prosperity. It will be your time of Aha! Aha! I told you who I was but you failed to see my potentials in the midst of my sufferings. You do not give up your hope and dreams even if you are told death is knocking momentarily at your door, which means it has not come and life is yet viable within you.

In spite of the oppositions and negative arrows that were sent to you by others, and by you, because of the danger of the lethal weapon, your tongue, you yet maintained your view and vision. It was to stop and combat the effort of remaining encouraged and focused but you are a survivor, as well as a true believer. Your goals are not altered because you have none, but because you have failed to believe that you could accomplish them, as well as act on them. You must continue to believe and know that your present mindset of confusion and bombarding thoughts of negativity; are just signs of your importance in this creation of mankind.

Everyday say to yourself: I am more worthy of every good thing, for they come to me from the Father. I am all that God says that I am and will obtain all that He says I will. I am continually progressing and headed towards my destiny that is planned specifically for me. I will not forfeit any seasons ever for my life, or any part of my destiny or goals. I remain to be encouraged and uplifted in Him. I am more than able as the Father has made me to be in all things, which I put my hands to. Be serious about what you say and do and keep pressing towards the mark of a higher calling in Christ Jesus.


You are not the diamond in the rough but the brilliance of the diamond that it transmits

If you fail to encourage yourself today, you will also fail to discourage the failure concerning yourself on tomorrow. Be and stay encouraged.

This is a nice little sermonette. I'm sure many will find comfort in your words. I need to remember to encourage myself as that is something that is difficult for me to do,=.
