Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 12 Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hardamong you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. 13 Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.14 And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone.
Let us think about it ~ WORDS
It's time to encourage one another and build each other up.
Isaiah 40:31 New International Version (NIV)
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Throughout my life time, I've see the value in words. Words can tear down or life up. When we hope in the Lord, will will renew our strength. Wow, it continues to say that we will soar on wings like eagles and keep going. Growing weary can happen, but we do have a way out. As we pray and seek the Lord, we will find him faithful and things change to positive. God is good all the time and all the time God is good!
John 14:27-28 New International Version (NIV)
27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.
Jesus didn't earth so we would feel alone. Jesus left us on earth so he could fulfill his purpose and each of us can do the same. Not the part of hanging on a cross, but he part of knowing that will be good. Life is so short and we can call upon the name of Jesus to help us. He is present in our lives if we allow him to be. Having faith is often hard when hard things hit. Having faith when things are good, is easier. Having faith brings us to hope and confidence that God is handing our day. A new day brings new beginnings and memories of yesterdays. Choose your thoughts, your words and your actions each day of life.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
