Happy National Day of Encouragement!

To celebrate the sixth anniversary of the National Day of Encouragement, I want to thank you, my readers, for all your continued support and encouragement. Every phone call, email, text, like, comment, click, and share encourages me to keep writing His words.

 

Did you know that the Bible talks a lot about encouraging one another? Here are just a few examples:

 

Learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow. (Isaiah 1:17)

 

 

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the call of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, all the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and remain with him forever. So comfort and encourage each other with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

 

So speak encouraging words to one another. Build up hope so you’ll all be together in this, no one left out, no one left behind. I know you’re already doing this; just keep on doing it. (1 Thessalonians 5:11)

 

 

But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. (Hebrews 3:13)

 

 

Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another–and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (Hebrews 10:25)

 

 

I’m eager to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. In this way, each of us will be a blessing to the other. (Romans 1:12)

 

 

But did you know that God himself is the ultimate encourager and comforter?

 

You hear, O LORD, the desire of the afflicted, you encourage them, and you listen to their cry. (Psalm 10:17)

 

 

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope,encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word. (2 Thessalonians 2:16-17)

 

 

My prayer today is that you will accept God’s comfort and that you, in turn, will encourage those around you.

 

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).

 

 

Big hugs,

Daphne

    I like the part where it says, “as long as it is still called today”. Today is still with us, tomorrow might not come, and yesterday is gone. 🙂

      I like the Romans verse a lot, especially the part that says, “each of us will be a blessing to the other.” Isn’t that what it’s all about? 🙂
