Resources for Encouragement

Resources for Encouragement

Jubilee Fam,

Here is something else from my time at the Writer’s Summit…I’m just playing! I’ve written enough, at least for now, about it. I want to share two waves that encouraged my soul this week as I surfed the internet!

The first is an Ask Pastor John podcast entitled How Do I Take My Thoughts Captive? The question comes from 2 Corinthians 10:5, where Paul talks about taking every thought captive to obey Christ. I have, for years, wondered what this means and how to do it. Piper’s answer in the podcast was a category changer for me.

The second one kicked me in my pants while moping around in discouragement over what seems like a never-ending assignment. Instead of working on it, I decided that the best course of action would be to check out who was fighting on Twitter. I came across this speech that one of Duke’s coaches gave to her team. Here is a taste to pique your interest — "Don’t wait for life to get easier. Handle hard well.”

Now that will preach!

Much grace to you,

Pastor Lew
