Five Minute Friday

Today, the word prompt is Encouragment


Lord, the word encouragement conjures up so many emotions inside of me.

Encouragement is so important and often we forget that it is a vital necessity to the human soul.

We need encouragement to reach for the stars, hope for the best and believe the Lord of the universe has it all under control.

We must have a hand to hold and a shoulder to lean on, cry on, share our deepest hurts but also the same hand to pick us up and encourage us to go again. To move. To believe. To trust.

Encouragement is found in a small card you receive in the mail or a small gift from a sweet friend.

My sweet friend just sent me a handmade necklace she made with her hands. Such a sweet encouragement to know someone loves me…

How about you?

How can you reach out to someone today to offer some sweet encouragement to them?

A card. A phone call. A small gift and note to cheer them on..

A wave and a cheer through the web.

Today, take the time to minister to another with a small or big bit of encouragement. God connects us for a reason.

He loves us and we should love each other.

Colossians 2:2

My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of Gd, namely Christ.



  1. You’re right, Angie, encouragement is vital to our souls! Thanks for providing that here and linking up on Recommendation Saturday! Heart Hugs, Shelly ❤

  2. Good Word. I’m an encourager, usually, but sure need encouragement. In our world, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, but in heaven it truly will!!! Look forward to being there.
