Do Your Thing!

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31

Satan is the king of negativity. He loves to sit in the corner of your mind booing and hissing at every thing you try to do for the glory of God. You may not recognize his voice because ventriloquism is one of his tools. He puts his negative words in your mind and mouth so they appear to be yours.

“My gift is not as good as hers.

Who do I think I am?

Someone else can do this so much better so I may as well not even try.

It’s too late for me.

People will think….

What is my effort worth in the face of so much need?

My past disqualifies me.

I need to wait till I know more.”

Meanwhile the world around you misses out. You also miss out on the joy of being used by God. Get rid of the idea that what you have to offer does not matter. It means everything to those who need it. Please don’t keep your five loaves and two fish hidden. Offer them to Jesus today. Let him decide how to use them. He will amaze you in this life and in the one to come at what He does with your talent, treasure, and time. You cannot do everything, but you can do your thing. So, by all means, my friend, do. your. precious. thing!

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.
