Words of Encouragement

1Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up just as in fact you are doing. 

I can't remember what day it was, but earlier this week my sweet friend sent me the most nicest text message. She wanted me to know that she could tell that I was growing spiritually and that the Holy Spirit had told her to encourage me. What she didn't know was that earlier in the week I had felt like a total failure to God because I had let my emotions get the best of me and depression and anxiety had entered in. I have struggled with these things in the past and I have been delivered but I still let my guard down some days even though I know that I shouldn't! My point to all of this is: my friend was obedient to the Holy Spirit when she was encouraging me. He knew just exactly what I needed to here at the exact time I needed it!! That got me to thinking....

Kind and encouraging words can make a difference in people! You never know what someone may be going through. We should all be quick to encourage one another daily!! This can turn a bad day into a good day! It can even put you, the encourager in a better mood to know that you have brightened someone's day!!
