Encourage yourself. Why? Because you can. You can! Why? Because God is with you, and the Holy Spirit is for you. Open your heart just half an inch, He will SO take advantage of you. He will! He will touch you. You don’t have to open your heart fully to the Lord, because He is just so ready to come in. But He has an ability to widen that door to get all of Himself in and in terms of what He wants to give you right now!
