More Than You Realize

” And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.” Matthew 10:42

We often think we make the biggest impact when we do big things for God. The more the sacrifice, energy, or expense, the greater the influence, right? Heaven may reveal a different story. Though the flow of good from a large venture can, should, and does yield a flood of praiseworthy results, small but significant acts have the power to do even more. For example, a meal served with a side of eye-to-eye conversation and a heaping helping of “you-are-worth-slowing-down-for” time is better than any store-bought gift. The way we talk to people different from ourselves in color speaks volumes to young eyes and a momentary example can yield a lifetime of imitation. A kindness extended can funnel hope into a heart scorched by injustice, causing a recalculation that everybody who looks like you is against them. A trickle of smiles and courtesies can cut a canyon of confidence in those prone to lack it. The God Who birthed a nation from a barren woman and her elderly husband also changes the world through little things you do everyday. Invite Him to have His way in you today; you will find Him working and using you in more ways than you realize.

Welcome to Myencourageyou.com! I am 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. 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.
