You Are Not Alone!

“Certainly I will be with you….” Exodus 3:12

New territory can be both exciting and terrifying. Your heart longs to take the necessary step to move forward, to reach a goal, fix a problem, make a change, or pursue a dream. As reliable as the sun rising each day is fear presenting all the reasons you can’t or shouldn’t try. Your insecurities are just as faithful; however, you have Someone Whose faithfulness is greater than either of them. The Lord has promised to be with you! The Mighty God is more than a monitor; His presence packs power to be courageous, ripping through lies and excuses so you can see enough to take the next step. Sometimes He gives you a song that pipes spiritual pluck through those fear-gorged veins; other times His presence is wrapped in the human flesh of an encouraging friend.

If you are too busy complaining how hard this is, you’re probably missing the presence. He cares how you feel, and there is a time to voice those emotions, but don’t let them do all the talking or for too long. Gratitude and praise have a way of cowering those complaints! You’ve got mountains to plow through, decisions to make, and a purpose to fulfill! You can be strong and very courageous because the Lord promised to be with you. You’re never doing this thing alone!

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
