I encourage myself by recounting the dreams and visions He has gave me. I encourage myself by remembering the events that occurred while I was considering the LORD. Like, the time I asked Him aloud how I could be close to Him-- my heart was distraught. I looked out my window that dark and quiet night, and saw one streak of lightning in the sky. I cried silently and went back to my room. And, the week I was anointed with the Holy Ghost. The audible voice of God that I heard that week. I said aloud, "Really?," asking God whenever I spoke aloud "to myself," was I really speaking to Him? and He answered through the voice of my sleeping Dad in the next room, "Yes, Really." I encourage myself because of the gift of tongues. Knowing that not all have been given this, and how earnestly we all want it deep down.
So again my question is.
How do you encourage yourself?
Keep me Father. Your strength is my own.
