Words to SPARK your Heart-Song from our co-founder Sherry Douglas.
#uplifting #positive #encouraging #motivational
Hi everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. On September 18th, we shared a post by Natural Life that says, “Be someone who makes someone else look forward to tomorrow.” That saying struck a chord with many of us. My guess is that right now we need to be reminded to be an encouragement to others, as we probably also need others to be an encouragement to us.
What kind of person makes someone else look forward to tomorrow? Most likely that can be answered in 100 or more different ways, but something that may be a common response is to be an encourager. An encourager inspires others with hope and confidence and makes the other person feel good about who he or she is. An encourager gives support, fosters enthusiasm, and spurs action.
Are you an encourager? Who have you poured hope and confidence into lately? Who have you supported? To be an encourager doesn’t have a specific formula. You get to be your best you while inspiring others to be their best, too.
There are many Scriptures about encouraging and building one another up. One of my favorites is Proverbs 16:24 which says, “Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body.” Kind, encouraging words bring pleasantness and goodness to the soul and body. Think about how your and my words can change someone’s life! We can help bring their souls and bodies health. That’s an amazing opportunity and privilege. This is the Word of the Lord. Lets, “Be someone who makes someone else look forward to tomorrow.” Let’s live the way we want to be remembered. Thanks for being here. See you next week!
