An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up. Proverbs 12:25
Are you anxious? Are you fearful? Does the uncertainty of life – even as a Believer – cast a cloud over you and your walk with Christ?
Certainly we have all had those feelings, and we have all worked through those thoughts. I daresay a day goes by that I don’t have similar, but milder thoughts. It’s easy to give up in the small things, even in the mind first.
Look around you, others are in your situation. Look into their eyes; try to walk in their shoes. Some may be having a horrible day. Probably others are feeling like giving up completely.
Encourage that person. It doesn’t have to be grandiose or elaborate. Think about something you can encourage that person in, and say it or do it. I guarantee you that you will be cheered up as a result of your own words to that person.
