Encourage yourself by Donald Lawrence has become this year’s Gospel mantra. The powerful emotions that are expressed in the song declare:
Sometimes you have to encourage yourself.
Sometimes you have to speak a word over yourself
As I minister to you I minister to my self
Everyone who has been through trying times can identify …testify…witness the validity of those words.
David encouraged himself using God’s words in Psalms 27.
No matter how you feel you have to raise your thoughts to a spiritual level where whatever you are going through will not seem as significant…lose its power over you…disappear... as you regain a peace of mind.
