ENCOURAGEMENT

ENCOURAGEMENT

ENCOURAGEMENT IS A VERY IMPORTANT DAILY WISDOM WORD.  IT IS IMPORTANT TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS.  WE KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO BE ENCOURAGED BY SOMEONE ELSE, ESPECIALLY SOMEONE WE ADMIRE.  THE SAME IS TRUE FOR THEM.  WE ALL LOSE HOPE FROM TIME TO TIME.  WE HAVE TOUCHED UPON TRIUMPHS AND GOALS SO FAR THIS YEAR.  PART OF REACHING THESE TRIUMPHS IS TO BUILD A HEALTHY SUPPORT SYSTEM AROUND YOU.  ENCOURAGEMENT FROM OTHERS IS NEEDED FROM TIME TO TIME SO WE DON’T GIVE UP TOO SOON ON A LONG-TERM GOAL.  WHEN WE HAVE A GOAL, WITHOUT A SUPPORT SYSTEM, WE ARE LEFT TO DEPEND ON OURSELVES ONLY, AND ALTHOUGH THIS IS THE MAJOR KEY TOWARDS SUCCESS WITH ANY GOAL, ENCOURAGEMENT RANKS RIGHT UP AT THE TOP AS WELL.  LET’S LOOK AT THE WEBSTER AND DWW MEANING OF ENCOURAGEMENT.  

WEBSTER DEFINITION OF ENCOURAGEMENT-1.  THE ACTION OF GIVING SOMEONE SUPPORT, CONFIDENCE OR HOPE.  2.  PERSUASION TO DO OR CONTINUE DOING SOMETHING.  3.  THE ACT OF TRYING TO STIMULATE THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN ACTIVITY, STATE OR BELIEF.

DWW MEANING OF ENCOURAGEMENT-THE ABILITY TO GIVE SUPPORT TO OTHERS AND OURSELVES.  

STAYING UPBEAT AND POSITIVE ABOUT SOMETHING WE ARE TRYING TO ACHIEVE IS NOT EASY.  THIS IS WHERE ENCOURAGEMENT CAN HELP ALONG THE WAY.  WE ALL NEED SUPPORT FROM TIME TO TIME.  WE ALL NEED ENCOURAGEMENT.  FIRST WE WILL TALK ABOUT WHY THE HUMAN PSYCHE NEEDS ENCOURAGEMENT.  

DETERMINATION IS KEY.  HOWEVER, SOMETIMES, WE SIMPLY GET DISCOURAGED.  WHEN SOMEONE ELSE OFFERS A BIT OF ENCOURAGEMENT, IT REMINDS US WHY WE ARE SO DETERMINED TO  WITH A GOAL OR ACHIEVEMENT.  IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT PEOPLE WHO START A MAJOR FEAT WITH A STRONG SUPPORT SYSTEM AROUND THEM, THEY ARE MORE LIKELY TO ACHIEVE IT. 

SOMETIMES FOR MYSELF, I GET DEPRESSED.  WHEN I AM FEELING THIS WAY, I TEND TO TURN TO MY MOTHER OR BEST FRIEND.  I ADMIRE BOTH.  MY MOTHER HAS WALKED THE PATH OF LIFE, AND OVERALL, MAINTAINS A STONG SENSE OF ENCOURAGEMENT TOWARDS OTHERS.  SHE IS NOT ONLY A GOOD LISTENER, BUT HAS STOPPED LECTURING AS SHE ONCE DID WHEN YOU ADMIT A MISTAKE.  SHE ALSO HAS GOOD ADVICE.  MY BEST FRIEND, IS THE PERFECT PERSON TO GET ENCOURAGEMENT FROM.  SHE WILL SUPPORT YOUR ENDEAVORS AND DOES NOT JUDGE THEM.  SHE ALSO WILL HAVE HELPFUL SUGGESTIONS FOR GETTING YOURSELF BACK UP AND DUSTING OFF TO RETURN TOWARDS THE RIGHT ROAD.  

WE CAN ENCOURAGE OURSELVES AS WELL.  THERE IS NOTHING, HOWEVER THAT CAN REPLACE THE SUPPORT THAT A FRIEND WHO LOVES YOU CAN PROVIDE.  HOWEVER, THIS FRIEND IS ALSO GOING TO NEED ENCOURAGEMENT FROM TIME TO TIME.  WE WILL USE MY BEST FRIEND FOR AN EXAMPLE.

DEBBIE IS ALWAYS THERE IF YOU NEED HER.  I BELIEVE WE NEED SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT, BUT MUST ALSO GIVE IT TO OTHERS.  I HAVE A SAYING IN LIFE.  “PAY IT FORWARD”.  WHEN SOMEONE PROVIDES SUPPORT, PAY IT FORWARD AND BE THERE FOR THAT PERSON OR SOMEONE ELSE WHEN THEY NEED YOU.  

OFTEN, PEOPLE DON’T SAY THEY NEED ENCOURAGEMENT OUTRIGHT.  THEY HOWEVER, WILL GIVE YOU A CLUE THEY NEED ENCOURAGEMENT, IF YOU ACTIVELY LISTEN TO THEM.  THEY WILL TELL YOU A PROBLEM SEEKING ADVICE SOMETIMES THINKING THAT IS WHAT THEY WANT.  MANY TIMES, THEY HAVE THE PROPER ANSWER TO THE SITUATION AND IT IS NOT SOLUTIONS THEY NEED, BUT ENCOURAGEMENT.  BEING A GOOD LISTENER, AND KNOWING SOMEONE CAN OFTEN GIVE YOU THE PROPER CLUES TO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE IN NEED OF.

Thank you for these Wisdom Words, Sam. Just one word of encouragement can save a person months even years of grief, and we, as Christians, are remiss if we deny them.
