In Times Like These

“Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season.” 2 Timothy 4:2

When troubled times come, you and I have work to do. Those around us need godly direction and the Lord has appointed us to give it. Do not think that you must be eloquent or that you need a special skill to be the light in dark situations. My friend, if you belong to Christ through faith in Him, you already possess the Light, you just need to let it shine!

Refuse to be distracted by political unrest. Your marching orders are still the same in season and out of it. These difficult days are merely a current that brings the fish closer to salvation’s net, an earthquake forcing earth’s inhabitants to look up when all they trusted in is unstable. You are appointed, in your own circle of influence, to be the voice that points your charges to Christ. May the Lord give you boldness, strength, and love that overrides fear in times like these.

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.
