Today I Shall Encourage!

June 11, 2012

Yesterday I sent this picture to my daughter in hopes that it would cheer her up. It’s finals week for her, she’s living on her own, working full-time, and her car broke down.

Earlier in the day I was with a friend who said that when she went through an extremely difficult time in her life that her Christian friends were nowhere to be found. That made me very sad.

So that evening, after I left my daughter, I realized that I want to be a better encourager. I usually have no idea what to say when people are going through things…but I want to give it my best try.

We all have so many things that we are going through, and if it’s not hitting us personally it’s very likely that someone very close to us is struggling.

I hope today that you will be encouraged to find some little way to try and speak words of hope and peace to another. Take the chance and just speak a word of encouragement…that could be a life changing thing for someone. I’m pretty sure you’ll be encouraged as you seek to lift others up. Today is a perfect day to focus on others and may you be blessed when you do.

  2. Hi Copperblue Studio! This is Amy from The Messy Middle — I updated my blog this weekend but haven’t been able to move subscribers from wordpress. Sigh. So, if you want to keep following me, you’ll need to resubscribe through wordpress (messymiddle.com). I’m slowly learning more about technology, that’s for sure … thanks for following!
