Words of Encouragement for Strength

Words of Encouragement for Strength

“Growth begins when we begin to accept our own weakness.”

Jean Vanier

Everyone loses their strength once in a while. For some people, the situation is so critical that they find it difficult to raise themselves up.

Life has dealt them a hard blow that they are on the verge of giving up. they feel very weak and even doubt if they have what it takes to succeed in life. Others have limitations like health challenges and so on.

The feeling of weakness is terrible and seeing life passing you by fast can also add to the frustration which may push you to make poor choices

Words of Encouragement for Strength

Take comfort in the fact that weakness is not peculiar to you alone. There are many people scattered around the world that are also going through difficult and even life-threatening situations.

Know that there is strength in weakness. many people are looking down on you and not expecting much because of your weakness.

So, you have nothing to prove to anyone. Instead, you should be encouraged being out of the spotlight to take time and work on yourself to overcome your challenges and make a life for yourself

There is so much to life than sitting down and suckling over how frail you are or how much things are not working. Remember, your own words and actions are important in making you or breaking you.

Quit blaming yourself and instead do something about your situation. Constant Complaining will only make your situation worse

Be not Faint Hearted

There are a lot of discouragements, especially where there are weaknesses. The feeling of incapability, low self-esteem, inferiority, and so on can hinder one from doing what needs to be done.

Many have become discouraged from pursuing their dreams because of glaring weaknesses. It is true that there are times where the circumstance is beyond us but also there are dreams that are very achievable in spite of our weaknesses if certain changes are made.

Therefore, toughing up and go hard at life. Trying to make big changes in a swoop can be very difficult with a high probability of failure or relapse. But small pre-meditated changes can yield wonderful results in the long run.

Build your confidence by gradually making changes to overcome your weaknesses. Physical and health challenges can pose threats but seek counsel and learn to make adjustments to accommodate the situation.

You do not have to rush. There is no time limit to things. So, move at your paste. Be not faint hearted but be courageous and hopeful.

Strengthen your Mind

There are a lot of things you can get involved in to help yourself; music, art, reading, hiking, traveling, collecting, paintings, and so on.

You can make new friends, register at the gym, take cooking classes, learn a new language, plant a garden, and learn skills that will engage your mind and increase your self-worth.

Nourish your mind by doing positive things with your life. Your area of weakness in one area can turn out to a big strength in another if you open yourself to new ideas for strength, speak words of encouragement and be positive about your vision for the future.

Many successful people still have a lot of weaknesses but they push through them and didn’t allow them to serve as hindrances to their life pursuits.

Mistakes will continue to happen to us all and we will sometimes get embarrassed on things we do not know and so on but so what? It’s all part of life.

Bible Scripture for Strength

Most times as humans, our strengths fail but we should understand as Christians, that it is alright for our strengths to fail sometimes but we should also know that we have someone who cares about us and will help us when we call on him. King David said:

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song, I praise him.” Psalm 28:1

Many people are drawn into the world’s cultural cliché of being self-made. They want to rely on their own strengths and abilities so they can boast of making it all by themselves. The truth is no one really does it by themselves.

People seek strength from all kinds of places. The words and strength of men alone can fail, so, seek your words of encouragement from the bible and always seek the Lord for strength.

Hold on to the word of God as spoken by prophet Isaiah that “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak” Isaiah 40:29. 

The Lord has shown his strength through weak people; Moses, Gideon, Jeremiah, Isaiah, and you are no different.

Come to the Lord in your weakness and hold on tight to his feet and submit to him and he will give you strength and use you to do what your own has failed to do.
