This is the lesson we just had today at our Real Time class with the teenage girls at our church, as the boys had theirs with a gentleman in a different room. Enjoy your read and be blessed.
This a box in which I put in all the good and positive things I say and believe about myself, and what God says about me. We all, as girls, have good days and bad days. During my good days, I have found it helpful to write down the things that help me feel great and boost my enthusiasm and my passion. The things that encourage me, the things that give me extra boldness and confidence.
Then when the bad days come, I have something to fall back on. I just put my hand in my encouragement box and pull out any one not, and it definitely gives me a boost. Because it is something I wrote myself, something I believe, something that is true, and something that is possible. Something that is founded on the Rock Jesus Christ, therefore can never be shaken or fail.
And it boosts my energy, my spirits, and my moods. And definitely gives me the oomph, the psyche to go on. I’m sure it can work for you too, so hey, go ahead and try it!
Here’s some of what’s in my encouragement box. By the way, I have some of them hang on a chart on my wardrobe, so I always see them when I go to my bedroom.
MY ENCOURAGEMENT BOX COLLECTION
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.
