Words of encouragement are necessary in a person’s life to flourish. God has equipped us with the ability to nourish the soul of others through our kind words. Every time we speak kind words to the people around us we are helping them build confidence to accomplish God's purpose.
You’re not supposed to be a doormat for people to walk all over, control you, demean you, belittle you, make you feel not good enough. You need people around you that inspire you, people who cause you to dream bigger.
God is going to keep making you, molding you, giving you grace to come up higher until He finishes. The key is to accept yourself while God is in the process of changing you. Know that He is pleased with you right where you are.
Don’t judge your future based on the progress you’ve seen in the past. God is not limited by a normal timeline. God controls time. What looks like is a long way off, get ready, it’s going to happen sooner than you think.
