Encourage

A few weeks ago I posted on my Instagram (@rcalife) and asked for people to comment some encouragement for people who might be struggling. Here are all the answers that I got, compiled into one place. As someone who has been struggling with some things lately, even just rereading these has been really good and encouraging for me.

“Don’t get stressed, it’ll give you pimples.” Gotta love this one 😉

“God’s got it, trust Him! He loves you enough to know the number of hairs on your head. If he cares enough to know the smallest of details, imagine how much he cares about you.” LOVE this one.

“Your opinion of me doesn’t define who I am- Pinterest.” Love this quote- very uplifting and inspiring.

“No matter what is thrown at you, it will bring you closer to God long term.” Definitely love this advice, especially when going through something difficult. Sometimes we don’t understand why things are happening, and we have to just take a deep breath and know that God is using it to grow us.

“This too shall pass, and on the other side, you’ll understand why it had to happen.” Once again, love this for when you are going through something difficult and you don’t understand why.

“Let go and let God.” Can’t say how much I love this one enough. I’ve heard it so many times, and it is a great reminder for me as a control-freak.

“Put on the belt of truth and your shield of faith to fight the fiery arrows that come your way. And know God is standing with you and you got other people who love the Lord who will stand with you too.” You are never alone, even when you feel lonely. Love this reminder of that.

“Flowers need both sunshine and rain to bloom.” When I read this for the first time I was like yessss, and reading it again I had the same reaction. Love this one so much!

“Sunsets and butterflies are both gorgeous, but SO different, right? It’s the same with people. We’re all different but we’re all beautiful. So DON’T compare yourself to culture’s definition of beauty.” This one is SO good. So many people struggle with body image, and this is such an amazing reminder that it’s okay not to fit into culture’s definition of what beauty should be. We are all beautiful in our own way, even if we don’t look the same.

Alright, that’s all of them! I currently have a similar thing going on my most recent Instagram post, so go check that out, and comment your “Awe” moments. What moments in the past few weeks have just left you in awe of God, and His beauty? If we get enough responses, I will put them all into one post, similar to this one! Have a safe and blessed weekend everyone!
