Every person you know needs to be encouraged at one point or another in their life. We all need to have someone in our lives who is willing to listen to our stories and to say you are loved

Psalm 126 says, “The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy” (verse 3). Find someone today who needs to be encouraged. Talk about the goodness of the Lord together. Romans 1:12 says, that you are “mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.

Please take time to recall the people who’ve been an encourager in your life. They were there when you thought you’d never overcome and that all is lost. They were the ones who listened to you, whereas others just talked. Ask yourself, “When was the last time I encouraged someone?” It’s not difficult. The people you will encourage will be bless and honored by you.

Ephesians 4:12: If the Body of Christ is to become mature and the temple is to be built as a dwelling place for God, every individual Christian must be committed to building up each other. As members of the body of Christ we have a duty to encourage and care for each other.

You don’t have to wait for something to happen, for you to show love to each other. Start now by Love others cheerfully. And while you do that stay positive. Remember with Christ on your side there is always hope, regardless of the circumstances. Do your best to help others cling to the promises of God whenever they go through trials or experience suffering.

Always remember when you feel like you are drowning in life circumstance, your lifeguard is in on the job.
