Ann – A Friend of Jesus 2013

Sharing life through the Word of God with love, encouragement and faith in challenging times (smile)

Encouragement

Romans 14:19 – Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another.

Everyone is dealing with something. Encouragement gives us strength to endure. Encouragement lets us know, we’re not alone. Encouragement is about believing we can get that promotion; we can relocate and start over; we don’t have to settle for less than God’s best; or fill in the blank________________.

Encouragement is making an effort to help someone see their struggle is temporary. Encouragement is keeping peace in unkind situations. They are challenges all around us, I’ve learned that we can only control ourself. Breathe, remain calm and listen. We don’t have to participate in angry ranting and raving.

It’s takes two. Most times, people just need to vent, so be a pair of ears that listen. This would be encouragement by presence, no words needed. (smile)

Encouragement is rare these days. When did we stop talking and encouraging one another? These days, it appears, it’s about what we don’t do or what we don’t have. (shock face)

The possibilities are endless to what encouragement can do for each and everyone of us. (smile)

Thoughts and comments are welcomed. (smile)

Be blessed, encouraged and enjoy your day! (smile)

Lovely, Ann. A basic encouragement is simply to verify another’s worthiness. My goodness life is rough with so many wanting to knock others down to (unsuccessfully) build themselves up. I pray I’m never guilty. So thank you for all of your encouragement ❤
