In a conversation with a wonderful photographer,
I was reminded that we all need encouragement,
even when we are very talented.
Even though someone seems to be very confident,
they will need encouragement to stay that way.
We all have doubts.
We all have hard days, down days.
A simple word of encouragement can make such a difference.
What is great about encouragement,
it also helps the encourager.
Try it! Encourage someone.
It will make you smile.
If you need words of encouragement,
but no one is there to help you,
go to the Bible for encouragement.
Here is one verse —
Isaiah 41:10 fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Encouragement is a form of love,
Whether it comes from a friend, a co-worker,
a parent, or God.
It shows someone that you care,
because you took the time to encourage them.
So, don’t wait !
Call someone today.
Send a card (mail or e-card).
Give a small gift.
Stop them at lunch, or in the hallway, and give them a compliment.
You will feel happier, and have more confidence,
and so will they.
Smiles all around! 🙂
