Thanksgiving to You

“And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded.” Matthew 10:42

In case no one has said it, I thank you for the difference you make in the lives of those around you. Thank you for saying “yes” to serving when you already have a lot to do. Thank you for all the ways you make special memories. You cannot ever do it perfectly, but you do it faithfully and with love. That counts a lot!

Thank you for the little things you do that mean someone feels included and seen. You have no idea how much your kindness keeps away depression, loneliness, and feelings of worthlessness for them. You have been the answer to someone’s prayers.  Thank you! 

,You get tired sometimes and that is ok. Rest, my friend. Know that rest is a gift from God that you are wise to receive. Rejoice in knowing you cannot do it all and God does not expect it. Just continue to do your part, and let God do what He did with the five loaves and two fish. 

Thank you for blessing your corner of the world. It would be dark without you. The people on your watch may be too overwhelmed to thank you right now, but the Lord notices. All your love and good deeds will morph into many crowns to throw at the feet of Jesus one day. You are nowhere near finished, but, oh, what a stash you are creating for that Great Day! 

Thank you for all you do. Thank you for all you have done. May God keep on using you and blessing you as you bless others as only you can. 

Happy Thanksgiving!

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.
