day of encouragement

It’s national Day of Encouragement…   as I glanced at my calendar today I reflected on the many times just a smile, a kind word, or a hug have been a slice of encouragement for me.   Each and every one of us have been through times where we have needed encouragement from a someone. In the journey of living through hurts and heartaches, the days where you think you just can’t go on, those times of not understanding why to our questionsencouragement is something we ALL need.  And hopefully, we’ve also each been able to have the opportunity to be an encouragement to others.

In the time of my life where I have felt the most desperate for encouragement, I found myself reading and memorizing ~ saying over and over to myself day and night Jeremiah 29:11 ~

‘For I know the plans I have for you’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.'” 

I have held on tight to those Words.  And so on this Day of Encouragement, I want to say thank you to the one who has encouraged me on a daily basis since Divine Appointment brought our paths back to share Our Journey!  Whether it’s  sharing The Word, praying with me and for me, giving a hug (oh how I LOVE his hugs!), listening to the details of my day, talking me through the muck and mire that comes with the drama in life, and always ending our day with “I love you…” ~ I am constantly reminded of God’s promise to me!  Now that’s encouragement!!! And such a blessing!!!

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
