Encouragement is…

Hebrews 12:5-6

And you have forgotten that word of encouragement that addresses you as sons:
“My son, do not make light of the Lord’s discipline,

and do not lose heart when he rebukes you,

because the Lord disciplines those he loves,

and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son.”

Encouragement is…inspiring each other to embrace life with enthusiasm, courage and love.

Encouragement is …a warm shoulder in a cold world.

Encouragement is …a cup of tea and a listening ear.

Encouragement is…being loved for who you are.

Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.

Woodrow Wilson

Real encouragement that makes a lasting difference is visionary. It is the willingness to imagine a good future, the choice to believe in a better world. It is not critical, tearing people down and nitpicking at their faults, instead valuing their uniqueness and seeing potential that they may not be able to see for themselves.

Being encouraged today. =)

Scripture Reading: Philippians 2:1-11

v. 1 “…if any fellowship with the Spirit…”

This morning’s prayer meeting with fellow brothers and sisters was just refreshing and humbling experience, to uphold each other and the Church in our prayers.

All glory to God.

Amen.
