{{It is Friday. Today I link with Lisa Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. Here is how it works…. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. Everyone writes on the same word. Equals a great time.}}

Today’s word … encouragement.

The gift of encouragement. That gift …

can come in a word or in silence,

over a meal or a cup of coffee,

in a conversation face to face, over the phone or in an email.

Sometimes it can be received in a photo, a touch, a kiss, or just a look conveyed.

But we all need encouragement.

And the secret about encouragement lies right there in the middle of the word – courage. Encouragement brings us the courage to keep on, to press on, to not give up. Encouragement makes us stronger, braver, persistent. Encouragement keeps us from falling apart, keeps us focused on the important, builds us up and binds us together.

May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as it is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 15:5-6 NLT)

Encouragement – we all need some.

Encouragement is ours to receive and ours to give.

May we do both today.
