Hi, I hope you have missed me! All five of you who read this blog,ha. Life has been a little crazy and I have failed at keeping this site updated on regular basis, which may be why I don't have very many readers. Anywho, I am here today.
I think most of us have gotten back into some what of a normal routine with school, athletics, etc. Soon we will start back up Fall Bible Studies as well. I would like to encourage you to add something to that.....
I know you are thinking yeah right like I have time for one more thing, but this will be as much for you as for someone else.
Here it is, be an Encourager.I'm certain you probably already are, but I think I mean more by it than the word on the surface means. We all (especially women)need someone that holds us accountable in our christian walk, someone that is there on those days when we just don't feel we can live out who we are called to be. Be that one special person that can be called on to lift their spirits when times are tough, someone to laugh with when times are fun, and someone to cry with when its not so fun. How is this for you? Because you need to find someone to be that person for you as well. Maybe its more than one person.
Here is some scripture that I thought spoke of this:
The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life (Proverbs 10:11).
Judas and Silas, who themselves were prophets, said much to encourage and strengthen the brothers (Acts 15:32).
We sent Timothy, who is our brother and God's fellow worker in spreading the gospel of Christ, to strengthen and encourage you in your faith (1 Thessalonians 3:2).
Therefore encourage each other with these words (1 Thessalonians 4:18).
Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching (Hebrews 10:25).
I hope all of us will reach out to someone today and encourage them.
