Words spoken to us and through us, can be extremely powerful. If you are going through some challenges or changes in your life whereby you need some encouragement, then I believe there is a way. I have been through my fair share of challenges and changes in my life, and if there is one thing I have learned is to never give up. Because I have been blessed with the will to encourage, I feel it is important to try to be an inspiration to others and an encouraging force.
Encouragement can be described as words or behaviour that give someone confidence to do something. I believe it is also about support and hope, to develop something inside you that is more than just feeling good about yourself. Encouragement is not about just saying nice things about someone, rather it can be about challenging someone to be empowered to change what they don’t like about themselves.
There are many verses in the Bible about encouragement. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 says “Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.” KJV, or “So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.” NLT
