Just Show Up!

“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart has imagined, what God has no prepared for those who love Him.” 1 Corinthians 2:9

If God can create an entire world and universe out of nothing, imagine what He can do if you just show up where He tells you! Yes, you, My Friend, with all of your questions about the details and your nagging doubts about whether you can do this and your fears of looking like a fool if it does not turn out right.

I have discovered that if I just show up where God says, He gets the chance to reveal Himself to me in a whole new way. It’s beautiful! You see, fear, doubt, and unending questions have a way of obscuring the glory God wants to show you. Your spiritual enemy, the devil, works overtime to convince you to stay where it is safe, where you think you are in control because he has no interest in seeing you receive the good God has in store for you. He knows that if you show up, or just hang in there when you do show up, the same God who created the mountains, seas, and flowers will create something beautiful in you! I believe that when you obey God, you become like a blank canvas that God is dying to paint something beautiful on. You get to be used by God to show Himself off. You become a satisfied customer who gets to advertise to other people what God can do. You have already seen a little of what He can do. He wants to show you more, to blow your mind, My friend, at what is possible when you let God do His thing in you. Yes, it’s a little scary, and it might even be a little uncomfortable, but oh, it will be so worth it! Your comfort zone may be hard to leave, but that comfort cannot compare to the joy that is coming if you trust God and just. show. up!

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.
