We don’t need pats on the back & pithy accolades to make it. BUT we do need encouragement. And there IS a difference. In Hebrews 3:13, God speaks directly to this: “You must encourage one another each day.” Each day! Did you see that? Lemme spell that out for you…E-A-C-H-D-A-Y.  In recent days, I have experienced the power of encouragement through Pastor David (@PastorDHughes) & Lisa (@LisaHughes). What has that looked like? It’s like getting pegged by a big nail of tough circumstance & God using people like them to patch that hole & fill that tire. It’s the power of turning what is hole-y into something solid again. It’s turning what is wobbly into something steady again. It’s turning what was stuck on the side of the road into something that can get back into the lane again. Life is hard, God is good, and encouragement is its catalyst. Be an encourager. Let God use YOU to get others back on the road of life again. You can never out-encourage & you can never over-encourage. And as a side-note, if you are feeling DIScouraged, one way to counteract those blues is to ENcourage others. If you are discouraged that you are single, or jobless but you encourage someone who is dying of cancer or homeless, I know–in a way only God can maneuver–you will feel encouraged, too. I hope this encourages someone today! 🙂
