The Power of Encouragement

Last Thursday, something nice came in the mail from up north...

Care Package

Every now and then, don't you just love it when someone(s) encourages you? It really gives you the power and passion to keep running the race. It can be a word from a friend or stranger, but it touches your heart and lets you know you are loved and to continue fighting the good fight! The word literally means to "en-courage" to "give courage". Cool, huh?

After enduring through a long week and having an even busier Easter weekend ahead, it was so life-giving to hear friends say words like, "I love you", "I miss you", "it's always so encouraging to be around you", and "hopefully you'll be up here soon =P". After seeing all these wonderful treats spill out of the care package and letting their words sink in, I felt a warmth and a confidence to press on despite my fears and doubts, knowing friends are behind me.

Card Goodies

So let's remember that we each have the power to encourage one another. To strive be the person that can give the kind words someone needs to hear! And if you're having a tough day, know that you really do matter in this world and I am praying for you. Please pray for me too as I am challenged to glorify God at my workplace and my church ministries. We can do it! =)
