Stay on the Job!

“Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not.” 2 Timothy 4:2 (NLT)

The apostle Paul was a jailbird of sorts. Imprisoned for preaching the good news, he did not let that discourage him. He just kept right on preaching while in prison. Can you just see him preaching to the guards chained to him? They probably worked in shifts and each time, Paul struck up a conversation with them and had compelling discussions about Christ. When life goes wrong for us, the temptation to allow that to discourage and distract is real. Satan is counting on it! Determine that no matter what is going on in life, you will not stop living for Christ and sharing His love and truth with others. Life is always going to be a combination of good days and bad, My Friend. Make up your mind that no matter what is going on, you are going to stay on the job of sharing Jesus with whoever happens to be in preaching distance.

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. Georgia, this is so true. The Lord never ceases to amaze me. This week our home group will be discussing being public and living out our faith.

    1. Hi Dawn, thanks for stopping by. The world is getting darker and we have to be faithful to shine the Light they are looking for! The culture wants us to shut up, but we cannot. Too much is at stake!
