Step by Step

Have you ever felt overwhelmed with the Christian life? Have your attempts to please God left you exhausted and discouraged?

Sometimes I’ll encounter a person who seems to have a walk with God that is so far ahead of mine. Their life makes me want to hurry up and grow in order to enjoy God as much as they do. Can you relate?

The walk we desire to have with God is never achieved in one big jump, but step by daily step. Sanctification is a process and growth is on the installment plan, not cash-and carry. We have a say in how quickly we grow, but there is no way to skip to the head of the line to maturity overnight.

Psalm 30:14 says that God remembers that we are human. He is patient and full of compassion, so why should we be any less so with ourselves while we grow step by stumbling baby step?

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.
