A Hope-full Challenge

“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together…but encouraging one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” ~Hebrews 10:23-25

Our hope is not meant to be stock-piled in our hearts, held close out of fear or uncertainty. It is meant to be shared. Proclaimed. Given away over and over again.

So this is the challenge: prayerfully consider the people in your life. Maybe you’ll think of someone you haven’t spoken to in a while. Maybe it’ll be someone you exchange a few words with every week at church. Maybe it’ll be your mom. Maybe it’ll be your husband or wife. Maybe it’ll be a friend. Maybe it’ll be your kid’s t-ball coach.

Choose someone. Actually, choose as many people as you want…but at least choose one. 🙂 And then send that someone a note of encouragement. You could even pick up the phone and call them. How you communicate is your choice, but remember to let them know that you are thankful for who they are in your life. Remember to let them know that they are loved by a Savior and, whatever is going on in their life, He is there. Your words don’t have to be eloquent. The point is to simply let another person know that you care, to shine a little light into someone else’s day.

And I’ll leave you with a little reminder of our Father’s heart for you…encouragement
