You Are Beautiful

How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news….” Isaiah 52:7

A hungry little girl doesn’t care if your nails are chipped when you hand her a plate of food. A homeless woman won’t refuse your help because you missed your hair appointment and your roots are showing. You look beautiful to her. Ashy legs and a wrinkled top won’t stop a hurting soul from finding relief when you listen as she pours out her heart to you.

Writing a small check you can send is better than the dream check you can’t.Your hoop-dee is Cinderella’s chariot when it brings meals to an elderly man who otherwise wouldn’t eat that day. Your life may be a mess, but you still have the power to bless. Take your eyes off all that is not yet perfect in yourself and your world. Shine what light you have in the direction of someone’s dark place.

Don’t wait until your rich uncle gets out of the poorhouse before you give to foreign missions. He may never get out, but others will remain imprisoned in hunger, hopelessness, ignorance, loneliness, and ultimately Hell if you keep your treasures to yourself waiting for your planets to align. You are needed, what you have to offer is valuable, and to those you serve, you are beautiful.

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.
