A Good Word

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Proverbs 12:25

"Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad" (Proverbs 12:25).

This week has been a heavy one for me personally as I have been walking alongside a sweet friend as she deals with and is helping one of her family members (also a sweet friend of mine) who is nearing the end of her life from cancer. And I'm seeing and hearing about many others I know who are also struggling with difficult situations. I wish I could fix all the pain and heartache (don't we all?), but I can't. I can, however, come alongside and offer "a good word"--not only to those whom I know are struggling, but to all I encounter. There's something special about hearing or reading positive words of support and love, words meant to lift us up and boost our spirits.

Who do you know who needs "a good word" today? Will you be intentional about delivering that good and encouraging message, and how will you deliver it? What impact does offering positive and encouraging words to people we encounter throughout the day (friends, family, co-workers, classmates, strangers) have on our outlook and attitude? Tami

Tami,I said a prayer for you and your two dear sweet friends,that God will give you a good word day that will be fitly spoken that you all will be helped and encouraged by it. God bless you!
Now, I pray that I will be available to give a good word to someone who needs it. When I am sharing a good word to someone, I am blessed and encouraged in return!

I feel led to deliver a good word to a couple I know and love. I will text them as they are very busy in their work days. I feel compelled to offer these words -- if I don't do it I believe I am falling short of what God is prompting me to do -- and offering a good word brings a good word back to you by the Holy Spirit.
