You Are Essential

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

What you contribute to the world matters. Do not downplay your role and the difference you make. It has been God’s plan all along. You are important to the quality of life of the people you touch. Without you, certain places would be empty yet full of need. You crowd out loneliness for someone, and you are the pebble that starts a ripple of courage, stamina, and hope in someone’s life. If you give up, others will too. Certain people look to you for love and encouragement, and others you have yet to meet are praying for God to send “someone like you” into their lives. God placed a lot in you when He created you and even more when He saved you! Do not let comparison, discouragement, depression, or doubt block your potential, My Friend. God is not done with you yet. Push through whatever has you down because folks are waiting to receive what God designed you to give. As long as you have breath, you have important blessing to do. You are needed. You are significant. You are essential.

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.
