Encouraging Words

With many experiencing loss or sadness or hospital visits today, I thought I would give a few Bible verses of encouragement today. My prayers and thoughts go out to each family who are in the midst of troubling/hard times right now.

** Romans 15:5-6: "May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ."
** 1 Corinthians 14:3: "But everyone who prophesies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement and comfort."
** 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17: "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."
** Jeremiah 29:11: "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Live each day to the fullest

You know... you're one of those people that the Bible talks about when they refer to "gifts of encouragement". I truly believe you have that and am so glad you share when God puts it on your heart for others.

God Bless you Elyse! :)
