Therefore encourage one another and build each other up…

1 Thessalonians 5:11

Who needs an encouraging word right now?  I know I do.  Last week was one of clean up.  I took some days off and began to clean my home office.  One day in March it became my home office, my church office and a recording studio.  Piles of things were added, and nothing was removed.  I had boxes of files, worship service cd’s, recording and duplicating equipment and more crammed into the little room.

We started (again) the process of going through books and parting with the ones we should part with.  And we had the ups and downs everyone faces in this time.

It was not a vacation of relaxation and respite, rather time away from the daily to clean up and prepare for more.

But then, I received a text from someone I have not heard from in a while, with a word of encouragement.  It was nice to get this.  Especially last week, when I needed a good word.

Do you need an encouraging word?

Has God placed the name of someone on your heart that might need an encouraging word?

The two go hand in hand, for if we are all listening for the Holy Spirit, we will hear the names we should encourage.  And if we follow the Spirit, we will encourage each other.

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up…
