You Will Be Alright

“…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” Psalm 30:5b

Are you going through a storm, my friend? It is hard to see to the other side when the storm is dark. You may know in your head things will be alright, but when your heart is hurting, a better day can seem unimaginable.

This is the time to call out into the darkness and then listen for the assuring voice of God to call back to you! You may have to linger in your prayer closet a little longer than usual, but it will come. Keep your heart’s ears open for that still, small voice. You will hear it. He is faithful. Cry if you must, but don’t give up.

Your present hard place will become a platform of praise. Those tears will dry and your song will return, mingled with new notes that only those who persevere can sing. God is up to something good, my friend. Don’t let go until He blesses You with the stronger faith you’ve been asking for. Somebody in your future is going to need to hear your song of deliverance. Don’t let it die before it’s born.

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.

  1. Georgia, your post of encouragement was just what I needed. I am going through a very difficult time in my life. But Jesus is the answer and as you have said I will hang on to Him.
