The power of Encouragement….. Worth it’s weight in Gold………

I don’t think a lot of people realize the struggle that occurs, in the fight to have a Passionate life. As Christians we so often fill our world with platitudes. “I’ll pray for you” we say (I say it often) and I really do, however……

There are just days when none of it really seems to help. Not that we aren’t grateful (for prayer) but when we’re still enduring the pain of some crushing blow, a huge disappointment, a tidal wave of fear wondering if anything is ever going to change…..

At that moment sometimes we just need a hug. A listening ear. Someone to say “It’s going to be okay and, by the way “I believe in you.”

Looking back on my life, I think about all the wonderful things I have experienced, fine dinners out at times, Lovely times looking at the moon, the stars, the beauty of nature…….

Times of abundance when the bills were paid and I actually got to go somewhere “cool”…

But you know what? I don’t know about you, but I treasure most the times when I was at my darkest hour, my lowest point, My “Worst day ever” and someone said, “I believe in you” “You’re going to make it” ………”Better days are ahead”……

Or like a friend said to me “I’m not going to quit, let’s not quit” ……….

Ah the power of affirmation………oh the treasures of the heart when someone speaks life to you and chooses not to do you in with a big shovel full of criticism…..

Love you Lots my Friends! You know who you are! -Laura Grace
