Is there someone who inspires you or encourages you unintentionally?

I’m not talking about the intentional encouragement of this post – I purposefully publish this blog to inspire, encourage, inform and help us grow together. I’m talking about someone who silently inspires you. Is there someone that you secretly notice how…

They work hard for their family.

Gracefully they endure hardship.

Unselfishly they sacrifice for others.

Courageously they fight an illness or disability.

They always have a smile when you need to see it.

They can find always find positive in the most negative situations.

Refuse to give up nor allow anyone else to give up…no matter what.

They have grown and overcome obstacles to become someone no one thought they would be.

There are innumerable ways that someone can unintentionally encourage you. Many times they do it without trying. Why? Because exhortation (encouragement) is a spiritual gift from God.

Romans 12:6-8 (NKJV)

6 Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; 7 or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; 8 he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.

Encouragement can drain those who pour themselves into others. I’m sure you have noticed this as you sacrifice your energy and anointing to be a blessing to others.

Remember that those who encourage you need encouraging too.

IF THERE IS SOMEONE IN YOUR LIFE THAT UNKNOWINGLY ENCOURAGES YOU, PLEASE SHARE THIS POST WITH THEM AND LET THEM KNOW HOW THEY ENCOURAGE YOU. Give them a thumbs up and a smile:-) This encouragement from you may come on a day when they need it most. Be a BLESSING to someone who BLESSTIFIES you!

God tells us to encourage one another and comfort one another with the encouragement and comfort that keeps us going…

1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NKJV)

11 Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.
2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (NKJV)

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.

ENCOURAGE YOUR ENCOURAGER and help them to…

BE BLESSTIFIED.

 

 

 

RUDE AWAKENING…

One of life’s most eye-opening experiences is when someone meets their favorite celebrity, athlete, politician or even minister only to find them to be rude, obnoxious, nasty, offensive, arrogant or mean. Many times their ‘security’ or staff may turn away the adoring fans.

The presidential election of 2016 was a perfect example of people getting into arguments to the point ending relationships with friends and family trying to defend or support people they don’t know.

The fact is, that if you were to meet some of these famous people, you may not like them or they may not like you.

As Jesus’ fame spread, throngs of people were drawn to Him. Much like some well-known people today, there was an occasion when little children were brought to Jesus. His ‘people’, the disciples, abruptly rebuked them and turned them away. Jesus quickly told them to allow the children to come to Him so He could lay hands on them and bless them.

Matthew 19:13-14

13 Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. 14. But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” 15. And He laid His hands on them and departed from there.

Isn’t a shame that some of our ‘big shots’ today think they are more important than Jesus.

Jesus didn’t turn those who approached him away then…and He still doesn’t today. Jesus is always approachable.

John 6:37 (NKJV)

37 All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.

BE BLESSTIFIED!
