My heart finds encouragement in many ways, but I would have to say that a lot of it has come from watching my 3 children grow in Christ. Most recently I have been encouraged by things like: finding my teenaged son praying at 2:00 in the morning; seeing an open bible lying next to my sleeping daughter; and being reminded by my five year old to say a prayer for him as I walk him to class.
I am greatly encouraged by a God who can do those kinds of things in the lives of my children, even when I have fallen short of being the kind of Mom--and wife, and daughter, and friend--I should be.
I guess the thing that gives me the MOST encouragement...is God's grace. And it encourages ME to offer much more of it to others.
"From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another." ~John 1:16
Do you need some encouragement today? Then check out (in)courage and you are sure to be blessed!
