A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them fell into a deep pit. All the other frogs gathered around the pit. When they saw how deep the pit was, they told the unfortunate frogs they would never get out.
The two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit. The other frogs kept telling them to stop, they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took heed to what the frogs were saying and simply gave up. He fell down and died.
The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again, the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and suffering and just die.
He started to jump even harder and finally made it out. But when he got out, the other frogs asked him, "Why did you continue jumping? Didn't you hear us telling you to quit." The frog explained to them that he was deaf.
He thought they were Encouraging him the entire time.
This story really touched my heart for many reasons. The main reason though was when I was starting this new Ministry I received nothing but pessimistic comments from friends. If I would have listened to everyone there would not be a Website Ministry, Prison Ministry, This Encouragement Ministry and other areas still being developed. If you are starting something new for the Lord and are not receiving the encouragement you need, all I can say is welcome to the family. I encourage you to be strong and not give up the dreams the Lord has given you to accomplish.
Do not let satan get you down or make you think of quitting your plans just because everything doesn't start off right. Pray and seek the Lord for direction and guidance and He is faithful to hear and answer your prayers.
Here are a few scriptures you should always keep in mind:
Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
Isaiah 55:11, "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Jeremiah 29:11-13, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart."If you enjoyed this post Subscribe to our feed
