Discouraged, then go encourage someone elseKatie's Ramblings
Are you feeling discouraged today? Then it is time for you to encourage someone else. I have found that when I am feeling like life is too much and overwhelming, that if I take the time to look to care and encourage someone else. In the process of giving them a pep talk I give myself one too.
Try it and let me know if it works for you.

We are Bible believing, scripture only people. We love to learn about the Hebrew roots of our faith. We believe it is important to not add or subtract from the Divine Word of God. The compiled scriptures that agree with one another and have no contradiction is the 66 books of what is commonly referred to as the Christian Bible, or the Holy Bible.
These writings were originally written by men inspired by God. They were written in the language of the writers and readers of the original documents. Many of the original documents have been lost, but God’s Word is eternal and remains. Therefore, it is important to us to study, learn, and consider the culture, history, and language of the original writers of the scriptures.
In our studies we have learned that the true name of God is Yehovah, and His son, our Messiah, is named Yeshua. Therefore, as you read our posts we will use the Hebrew names of God and our Messiah.

Are we truly living out verses 24-25? In this crazy, hectic world we live in (even as believer in Jesus), we get sucked into it and it takes too much effort to obey 24″and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” Why?Did Jesus ever have to check his “phone/calendar” and squeeze his disciples into his “schedule” of “free” time? no… then why do we take on this idea that the world is constantly shoving down our throats that time is a precious commodity that we don’t want to waste it on spending time meeting with and encouraging and loving the needy-whether it be the Believer in Christ or the unbelieving seeker. When our brother or sister is in need of encouragment in order to make it through the next moment or the next hour and we have to be “fit in”, that really stinks! I am probably rambling on and not keeping on topic of “discouraged, then go encourage someone else” and I apologize. I would just like to really know that somewhere out there, there is a community of believers that are willing to take the TIME to be available to be an encouragement for the discouraged and weary, in a genuine way. I’ve been in this type of community and it is a wonderful experience. Now that I don’t have it, I’m thankful I know that it can happen if we are diligent to do what Jesus did and does even today.
I understand exactly what you are saying. I am often frustrated that no one seems to be available to get together and spend time in fellowship and encouragement. I realize now that it takes true effort to connect and be an encouragement. So, instead, of getting upset that the people I want to spend time with are not available, I have decided to make an effort and spend time with those whom the Lord shows me needs encouragement. It is more effort, but I feel blessed for the effort.
