Get Moving!

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on.” Exodus 14:15 (NIV)

Nothing ever got done by wishing, my friend. How long will you continue to hesitate? It’s time to activate! You have done enough research, planning, hoping, and yes, maybe enough praying for now. It is time to take the next step in the direction of your destiny. If you wait until you are no longer afraid, you will never start. If you wait until everyone is on board with your plans, you will be in this same place next year and the next. Pick a step and take it!

God calls you to fulfill His purpose in your life. That purpose is to glorify Him, but the way you do that is unique to you, my friend. Your path may be parallel to that of others, but the prints on your path are in a pattern unlike anyone else’s. This is where the adventure begins. This is where you step out and trust God to guide you. He is always there. He will be faithful to strengthen you.

I learned long ago that God gives the instruction, but it is up to me to get moving. Sometimes I told myself I was waiting on God when it was He doing the waiting. I learned there is no need to worry that I may go the wrong way. God has a way of closing doors when He does not want me to walk through them. He makes me wait when the time is not right, and He sends opportunities knocking at my door when the time is right.

What is God telling you it is time to do? Do you want to lose weight? Start a business? Go back to school? Build relationships to earn opportunities to share Christ? Start where you are with what you have, and God will do the rest. He wants to accomplish so much with your precious life, my friend. Believe this and get moving today.

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.
