Encouragement has been defined as “the ability to inspire with courage, spirit or confidence” ( The word has been stuck in my thoughts for days now bringing me to dig a bit more deeply.

In his first letter to the Thessalonians, Paul uses the word “encourage” seven times in the NLT. In chapter five, he reminds us to “encourage each other” (verse 11) and “encourage those who are timid” (verse 14).

Paul recognized something occurs within us when we receive a word of encouragement.

“So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.”
(1 Thessalonians 5:11, NLT)


I hope you will join me at Woman to Woman Ministries HERE as we look at what encouragement can bring to our lives.
