Encourage Yourself in the Lord

This Music Monday is focused on loving the life you live.

Don’t you love those times in life when you are really enjoying God’s blessings and experiencing joy? Don’t you just love it when you love the life you live?

Then there are those other times, times when life is challenging, when it’s drudgery and hard work. When you have to search for happiness and encourage yourself.

It is commonly reported that depression affects around 20% of Canadians each year! These individuals have a difficult time enjoying life. And we don’t need to judge depressed people because many have been to a place when we struggle with maintaining happiness.

The good news is that God’s Word offers tremendous help with your battle to stay encouraged.

The Scriptures teach that God intends for you to be victorious, to enjoy life! God wants to help you face life with confidence and enthusiasm! He wants you to be encouraged and He wants you to experience a happy life.

Look in the mirror and tell yourself you can make it, speak over yourself, even if nobody tells you you can make it you have to tell yourself greater is He the is in me. Believe everything God has said about you because everything the enemy tells you is a lie.

Perhaps David is the best example of being able to encourage yourself in the Lord. When you read some of his Psalms you are amazed that he starts writing a song while he’s discouraged and ends the same song encouraged! He learned how to see the light in dark days.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1:]
Sometimes you have to encourage yourself.
Sometimes you have to speak victory during the test.
And no matter how you feel,
speak the word and you will be healed;
speak over yourself,
encourage yourself in the Lord.

[Verse 2:]
Sometimes you have to speak the word over yourself,
the pressure is all around,
but God is present help.
The enemy created walls,
but remember giants, they do fall;
speak over yourself,
encourage yourself in the Lord.

[Bridge:]
As I minister to you, oh I minister to myself,
life can hurt you so,
’til you feel there’s nothing left.
(No matter how you feel),
(speak the word and you will be healed).

[Vamp 1:]
Speak over yourself. [x4]

[Vamp 2:]
I’m encouraged.
I’m encouraged.
I’m encouraged.
I’m encouraged.

[Ending:]
(Speak over yourself),
(encourage yourself in the Lord).
