Finding Encouragement & Inspiration even on Facebook

Inspiration in the most unusual places!

This morning I started my usual coffee time routine by checking email and then heading over to Facebook to check my newsfeed.
As I read all the posts from my favorite Bible teachers and busines gurus, I was struck by the continuity of the messages today, and how they make one grand message of hope, inspiration, and motivation then put together.
Too good not to share!

Judge your worth and value by what God says about you in His Word, not by how somebody else treats you. (Ephesians 2:4-10) ~Joyce Meyer

Practice encouraging yourself on a consistent basis. It’s essential for the process of developing your inner resources, providing you the courage to make life-affirming choices. The more intentional you are to do so the more you effectively buffer stress, and the less you focus on your mistakes, the less you compare yourself to others, and the less you compete against others. Dare to see yourself in a positive light. When enduring a season of isolation, feeling cut off, disconnected, out of sync and rhythm, having to face unexplainable challenges that stretch you beyond measure is a gift in disguise. You are being enlarged in the very distress that seems to be squeezing the life out of you. Choose to walk tall, stay strong, and laugh by faith. The other side of this season holds great promise and possibility you can’t imagine.~ Dr. Mark Chironna

It's so important for us be around people who will stir up greatness within us. Find people with God-inspired dreams; people who will build you up and celebrate your victories with you.
Refuse to let your past keep you from the future God has planned for you. Today, forgive those that have hurt you and forgive yourself so that you can walk in victory.~Joel Osteen

“Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.” -- C.S. Lewis

Get God’s plan before making your own plans. We don't begin to know what freedom is until we come to a place in our lives where we have no need to impress anybody. God not only gives us a part to do, but He also gives us the power to do it! God is not calling us to run away from hardships. When we know our God, we don't have to run from things. Sooner or later, anything you run from will have to be dealt with. We must be responsible to do what God asks us to do. To be truly humble takes more strength than anything else I know. To be truly victorious, you must grow to the place where you’re not afraid of hard times but are actually challenged by them.~ Joyce Meyer

‎"The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time." -- Abraham Lincoln

Fake it until you make it! Act as if you had all the confidence you require until it becomes your reality. ~ Brian Tracy

‎"Win as if you were used to it..." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

‎"Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere." -- Albert Einstein

"I choose to create abundance in my life regardless of what the economy is doing."
~Dot Com Diva

If you honor God in the season you are in, you will begin to bloom right where He has planted you. You may not see all the fruit right now but don't give up. Good things are coming your way. Enlarge your vision for the amazing things God has planned for your future. God’s favor is at work in your life right now to raise you higher than ever before. ~ Joel Osteen

Are you encouraged now??? I am!
