Flying with encouragement

These days I have been patiently (okay, for those who know me, patiently is a stretch, but work with me) for something to happen. I am not exactly sure what I am waiting for, but I need something to happen. I need something to change, even if that something is me. I often find myself looking back and over-analyzing what I did, what I should have done, what I didn’t do, what I thought about doing, what I wouldn’t do, and so on and so forth. All that thinking is draining. I feel like I am living in the meantime. The time between now and the THING that needs to happen. The THING that is going to happen, one day. I think the Weight Watchers program will help. It focuses on one week at a time. At the meeting one woman made her 10% goal after one year. She said that some people do it sooner, her journey took a year. She admited that there were weeks when she did not lose any weight. The key she said is to not give up.

I found this passage; I do not know the author and I do not remember where it came from. I do know that tonight, it will be on my bathroom mirror.

Be Encouraged Today

Defeat comes from looking back. Distraction comes from looking around. Discouragement comes from looking down. Deliverance comes from looking up. Nothing you have done has been a waste of time. Don't measure your success by what others have accomplished. Look over your shoulder and realize how far you have come. Your endurance, integrity, faith, love, and willingness to grow, is what makes you successful.

Even though you may have come close to the edge of giving up and believing that you are not enough, you are still here. Just as your computer was installed with a program, you were born with a purpose. Never discount yourself. Stand in your glory and exercise your spiritual authority over anything or anyone that tries to distract, diminish or anger you. You have your role and assignment.

You are significant. You are making a difference. You are loved. You are a conqueror. You are phenomenal. You are about to turn the corner and be victorious. You are too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed! The shortest distance between a problem and a solution is the distance between your knees and the floor. The one who kneels to the Lord can stand up to anything!
