Have you ever been at a place where you wanted to throw in the towel? And everything around you looks like it is tumbling down. Well, last week I found myself in that place. The kids had major school projects due, the urgent needs of the ministry cried out, and my energy level was at an all time low. I shouted!! Lord, what is happening ? Am I really in the right place? But a small still voice spoke , Maria, You Win!
I would like to share with those who have felt like this before & came Soooooo close to giving up but decided to give it another chance!!
To Encourage means to Build up, to Support & to Inspire. It is an attempt to persuade someone to succeed.
We are encouraged through words, songs, entertainment & or others around us. I have come to the conclusion that there are some who have the Gift of Encouragement. They speak words of faith, love and hope and have a tendency to light up a room everywhere they go.
I would like to Encourage you who are reading this on today.
Trials & Tribulations are a part of life. Noone is exempt from not having them. They happen in our marriages, with our children, on our jobs, in ministry & even friendships. I would like to share with you some helpful tips that has helped me along the Winning way !!
