It's a beautiful blessing to have people in life who
want God's best for you.
An encourager will lift and build you up,
...not tear you down. They cheer you onward,
pray for you,
they believe the best in you,
and speak words that heal and bring life.
Yesterday I mucked out the barn and it was one dirty job.
Using a broom to knock down cobwebs in chicken wire over my head - well;
I ended up wearing most of them. It was so hot in the there cleaning out the chicken pens
with a pitchfork and cart. Not much fresh air was
moving through. It wasn't long and I was wringing wet and then to have all that filth
cover me... it was nasty.
For me; that's very much what discouraging words can be to my heart.
They're like dirty words that are hard to scrub off.
They can hang on you like a dirty grime of filth.
Words of discouragement can ....hinder,
dissuade, and.... very much dishearten.
As I watered the sunflowers today, I remembered
planting into the bed of this olde truck. Since that day, I've taken time to help them grow by
watering daily and doing everything I could to help them along.I know I'm blessed with friends who have planted into my life as well-
watering, nurturing, and helping me grow.
I thank God for you,
and I want to encourage all of you
