Encourage - To make (someone) more determined, hopeful, or confident.
This Thanksgiving Holiday season is quite busy to say the least. Many are preparing to have an enjoyable time with family and friends. The same is true at the Burns house hold as well. Nevertheless, I know there are many who are walking around with a hole on the inside. Unresolved issues from broken relationships, lack of finances, and issues of low self-esteem. Such cannot be detected always by the naked eye, but a person’s actions and or speech can reveal where a person really is in their life.
I can admit people who are encouragers are totally invaluable. I have seen individuals who were bowed down mentally and physically. But after sometime being around person who had the uncanny ability to speak life giving words that aided in the transformation in the lives that were discouraged.
I would admonish all not to forget that there those around us who needs to be uplifted, inspired and encouraged during and after the Holiday Seasons.
