Receiving an encouraging word from someone can light up a dark corner of our life. It propels us on through the tough time permeating our soul with hope and strength.
Athletes need a word of encouragement when they face the slump times of training and competition. These words often come from those close to them. It can be as simple as a whispered, “You can do this!” Or leaving special note scrawled on a bathroom mirror saying, “I’m proud of you!” It is these small, yet impacting, responses carry them on to their next assignment and on to their ultimate goal.
"Most of us, swimming against the tides of trouble the world knows nothing about, need only a bit of praise or encouragement - and we will make the goal." Robert Collier
The prophet Isaiah talked of about bringing A WORD TO THE WEARY…
The Sovereign Lord has given me his words of wisdom, so that I know how to comfort the weary. Isaiah 50:4 NLT
