Name one person who encouraged you. Push beyond mom and dad or spouse. Name one person who made it a point to encourage you when you are at a low point. When everyone else stepped away.
I have some who come to mind. I have had dark days of unemployment (twice,) personal failures (3 big ones,) struggle with a big decision (too many to count,) and taking a stand and paying dearly for it (3 or 4 times, all in church work.)
Name the encourager when you hit bottom. What did that person do or say?
Now, go do that for another. Every day, we are surrounded by people who need our encouragement. Not just our friends who need a little boost but others who are running on empty. What a gift you can offer by being an encourager. God loves this stuff. God will help you.
