There is always someone in your life that could use encouragement.
A few words spoken, written or texted can change a someone’s day.
You don’t have to have the perfect words for each situation, just let them know they are appreciated, talented, inspiring or whatever you find to be a strength in them. All of us go through times when we need encouragement. You can be the way God encourages someone today.
I once was overwhelmed with the thought to send an email to somebody I had been thinking about. I don’t usually do things like that so it took some effort. But later that year I heard how much it meant to that person. It was way more than I could’ve imagined. The attempt to encourage others may or may not show signs of its effectiveness, but don’t let that stop you.
Join me in a renewed focus to encourage others. It will lift them up and God can work with the love and effort you put into it.
It may even change you in some profound ways.
