The Quiet Influence Of Encouragement

Have you ever received a faith-boosting text, phone call, or message at the perfect time?

Just when you start doubting yourself and your passion, God sends someone to let you know you’re on the right track.

Encouragement is the antidote to discouragement. And I believe that if more people encouraged each other, the world would be a much better place for the following reasons:

  • Encouragement recognises potential.

Encouragement doesn’t always have to be given when things are going well. It can also be given when all things are failing, why? Because encouragement can spot potential in others and bring it to the forefront through the eyes of discernment.

  • Encouragement affirms a person’s worth.

When you encourage someone, you should emphasise a positive trait that they have demonstrated, whether through their work or their attitude.

Remember that projects come and go, but people are here to stay, so say something that they will remember and draw strength from in the future.

  • Encouragement ignites faith.

When pursuing one’s passions, making sacrifices, and stretching oneself, the process can often feel unrewarding. When encouragement is released, it has the ability to validate a person’s journey and give them extra motivation to keep going.

To sum up, don’t overthink it the next time you want to encourage someone; just do it. You never know how far your words will travel, and it’s a simple way to increase someone’s sense of self value.
