Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
1 Thess 5:11
According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, one of the definitions of encourage is: to inspire with courage, spirit, or hope.
Most of us get the idea of encouraging, but really, how often do we do it? This site poured out from my own love language. I need encouragement and I know others do too.
So ask yourself truthfully, when was the last time you encouraged someone? When was the last time someone encouraged you? I hope it hasn’t been too long.
What encourages you? For me, it is often your comments that keep me going! God told me to write my story(ies) but I really had no idea what His plan was for me (and still not totally sure) until I did the work. When your responses come in, I can see His hand at work and I am forever grateful that He would use a wretch my like me to encourage you. It still blows my mind.
I thank each and everyone of you who has left a comment and shared your heart. Every comment is read and treasured (some I have even printed and saved). Thank you for encouraging me!
I want to know how someone else has encouraged you. What did they do or say? I’m working on a new book and I need all the input I can get! But most of all, I want you to start thinking along the lines of encouraging others.
What can you do to make someone’s day?
