Keep Shining, God Notices

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

We are all part of a time of intense global suffering, inconvenience, and uncertainty. Simultaneously, we live in a time brimming with opportunity to serve, give, create, connect, and invest. In whatever way you are using these opportunities, God notices. He sees you reaching out to a neighbor and checking in on family and friends. He sees you volunteering, sacrificing, and encouraging. The smiles you are bringing to sad faces, the prayers you are praying for anxious hearts to have peace-none have escaped God’s attention. The rewards, in addition to the earthly satisfaction you feel now, will meet you in heaven embedded in crowns you will throw at the Master’s feet.

The chances to make a difference are ripe and ready for the taking. Take all you can for the glory of God, My Friend. Dark times are a perfect backdrop for your light, His light in you, to shine. May the gleam of your gifts shine so bright that others see God and bring a smile to our heavenly Father.

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.

  1. Hi, Georgia, thank you for the inspiring words l really needed that today. We have a contract on our home and trying to sell a lot of things witch we have. God have been right there to help us. Every thing so far has sold at the price we asked. Some things we had 5 to 10 people wanting the same thing. If all goes through we close on May 14 or 16th. Keep us in your prayers. My husband needs back surgery if not for the virus they would have done it right away, but now he has to wait till we get to Ohio. Love you and thank you
