There is nothing more comforting then to receive a note of encouragement when you least expected it.
How many times has your heart been heavy with the burdens of life and you just did not know what you were going to do until you either read or heard some words of encouragement which changed your perspective on your circumstances?
The power of encouraging words can truly be a gift at this time of the year. If you see someone who appears to be down, try giving them a warm smile and a simple word of encouragement which God will place on your heart at that moment.
Allow God to use you to touch the heart of someone today.
Let your words be as simple as a Merry Christmas to the unexpected person you are passing on the street or in the grocery store isle, who appears to be sad or lonely. You never know how much they will mean to this person.
If God allows, watch for an opportunity to go beyond a mere Merry Christmas greeting and use your words of encouragement to go beyond the simple foundation to meet at the core of someone’s spirit.
“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had.” Romans 15:5 NIV
Share with them a gift they could never buy.
Share with them a gift that will touch their life forever.
