An Encouraging Word for Today!


Jeremiah 1:5 -
"Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations."

You know what?  You were born for a purpose!  God had something very specific in mind when He decided to create you!

Those times in which you were broken and in search of God were precious seasons in your life.  While everyone thoroughly enjoys your go-gettem' attitude and your ability to make things happen on a dime, your godly friends really appreciate those special times in which they've watched you quietly seek The Lord for His provision, His guidance, His touch, and His wisdom.  There is something very beautiful about a person when they are quiet and still in His presence.

I hope that through it all, the one thing that has been impressed upon your heart is the fact that Jesus is real.  He loves you.  He still works miracles. And, that He wants YOU to be ALL HIS.  He wants your whole heart!

The Lord has brought you through a lot of trials and you certainly have a lot to be thankful for.  Don't ever doubt that God can use you.  He takes people who are bruised and beaten and brings them through difficult situations with victory, then uses those same people to encourage someone else.  That makes it all worth while... encouraging others.

So when you think back on your life - where you've been, what you've done, and how you've survived - just remember: You've come a long way baby and God is not through with you, yet!  

He has GOOD plans for YOU!  So, reach out and grab His hand... don't let go... don't look back!  Just trust Him because He is your Daddy and He loves you like no earthly father ever could.

Jeremiah 29:11 -
 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."
