It's Sunday... Be Encouraged.

For some reason last week was a struggle mentally and emotionally for me. Things are going good in my life, but like I said... last week was a REAL struggle. I felt insecure, sad, worried, scared, doubtful and a host of other emo feelings all week and I didn't like it at ALL. 

Things finally broke for me on Friday when I was sitting at my computer at work and clicked on the Yolanda Adams channel on my Pandora station ( instead of 2 Chainz). Right away song after song came on that were so encouraging I felt my spirit lifting. I had also called a friend and asked her to pray for me... so I'm sure that helped too.

It was so crazy for me, that I felt like I couldn't even pray for myself. I'm happy to have people in my life I can call that can get a prayer through on my behalf.

The last song I listened to before I left work (in the back to back encouragement song rotation) was in Love Like Crazy with God by Kierra Sheard. I was completely in a different place spiritually when this song went off.

I was all... GO GOD again... and I'm glad :) If you're reading this and going through something I hope YOU know that God LOVES you and wants you to be encouraged too! Happy Sunday!

Great post hun! As my mother would say the lord works in mysterious ways and he place people in our lives for a reason. Hope this week is better than the last, and remember he won't put more on you than you can handle.

I'm late getting here but always know that you can go to the Rock in prayer, song, or prayer warriors. When you stay well-stock with the Word and Prayer temporary moments serve a purpose and you come out stronger. Look at you now. Be encouraged!
