Encouragement and good news are needed by everyone, so don’t hold back. If you sense that someone is having a bad day, say something nice to them or ask them how you might pray for them. You never know what an encouraging word can do to impact a person’s life. So often we think the people around us have a perfect life when in reality we all have challenges and need each other.
When you are prompted by the Holy Spirit to do/say something to refresh someone, just do it! You won’t be sorry.
Like cold water to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
Thanks all who have often encouraged me in this life’s journey.
