Like gold apples on a silver tray is a word spoken at the right time. – Proverbs 25:11
God knew I needed some kind words. It was one of those seasons where I struggled with discouragement. It was tough. However, receiving a random unexpected text message from a friend, changed my life. It was like getting gold apples on a silver tray. It was a beautiful gift, and my heart sang. My friends text message made me feel seen, and it was God’s way of encouraging me to not relent or quit.
Kind words of encouragement could save a life. A dream. A purpose.
And so today, I hope you encourage someone. It could be a stranger or your best friend.
Make that call, send that nice text message, smile at someone or compliment them.
Spread hope. Spread light. Spread joy. Spread love.
Some people are lonely. Some people are discouraged. Some people mask their hurts and failures with smiles. And the hope, light, joy and love you carry, might be what can help them.
Lend your heart and positivity to those who need it. Be a shoulder, help carry the burden of others.
The world needs lots of it. As the old saying goes, ‘Be kind to everyone you meet, you never know the battles they are fighting’.
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. – 1 Thessalonians 5:11, 14
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. – Ephesians 4:29
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works- Hebrews 10:24
Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.- Proverbs 27:17
Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad. Proverbs 12:25
Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered. – Proverbs 11: 25
And you stay encouraged. Keep doing good. God’s joy is your strength. God sees you, and the work you do. He loves you. He will never leave you. He sent Jesus to die for you. Yes, God loves you so much. You are a miracle, and I’m so excited about your process & your beautiful finishing. Don’t give up. Be brave.
If you were to encourage someone today, what will you tell them?
Love & Light
