Words Of Encouragement


We are all alike. We need human sympathy and love. It’s never enough to say I love you to someone without showing them empathy. All about us are continually those who are disheartened, broken, wounded, shattered, whom we can cheer and strengthen with encouraging words. No matter how much we tend to enjoy and experience the love of Christ, we all need human love. Paul lived very close to his masters. No man ever had more of Christ. Yet Paul’s epistles show continually a longing for human sympathy and a need for the human touch in their lives. He tells of a great blessing, which God sent in the person of Titus. “2 Corinthians 7:6”. Titus was a dear friend and his coming gave the apostles new courage.

How much of a blessing are you to those around you, friends, community and even strangers? Do people feel threatened or belittled when you are around? Do they feel encouraged or broken by your presence? Do they pretend to be happy whenever you are around so as to avoid your malicious tongue lashing out on them? Remember sarcasm is hostility disguised as humour.

The ability to encourage someone is something we all must pray for. There are several ways to show encouragement. For instance; through kind words, cheerful giving, being a friend, etc. You don’t constantly need to reprimand, condemn, or nag someone over something they failed to do right or did in the past. Their consciences and karma would take care of that, if not doing it already. If words don’t seem to come out right for you, then replicate it with an act of kindness.

Let your life be the gospel of love that people would know and read even after you’re gone. Never turn a blind eye to something you know you can fix or change. There’s someone out there who needs your encouragement to stay alive. There’s enough chaos in the world already, no need to add yours.
There’s no better ministry we can choose in this world that would mean so much to others than a ministry of encouragement.
Wishing you peace in your heart today and always.

Love and Blessings ❤❤

    1. With the advent of technology and the world becoming digitized, humans are beginning to lose their touch and ability to communicate effectively with one another.
      Words are powerful and can go a long way when they are positive. Thanks, David, your response are always insightful.

  1. This is just what I’m trying to be; used to be really rude and care free but now I tend to listen to people and encourage them; this is encouraged me to continue encouraging others.

  2. I love the quote that says “Be an encourager. The world already has enough critics.” 😊 This is something I have been working on for the past two years – speaking life everywhere I go to family, friends, and the people I meet along this journey called life. It isn’t always easy because our flesh often rises up when things get difficult, and we want to speak what we are going through or how we feel, but I have found that the more I meditate on what is good and right the less I feel compelled to speak negative. I am definitely a work in progress. Great blog!! Blessings!

    1. Everything you need right now is inside of you. Change your beliefs and you change your life. It takes courage and bravery to have the mindset you have.
      May your life continue to be the light that lights up every dark corner in this world.
      Thank you for being an inspiration. Blessings!

    1. You’re most welcome Elena. Thank you very much for your kind words and for dropping by.
      I’ve learned to make each day one of its kind because it will never come again. To bring joy to someone, speak good words and use them to heal, encourage others and learn to care.
      You did put a smile on my face by your visit. Please, do visit again.❤
