My question to you today is this: How are things going in your house? How is homeschooling going for you? How about for your kids? How are things for your husband? What about your homeschooling friends ~ how are things going for them?
We've all heard the saying, "Things are rough all over." And some seasons in life prove that saying to be true. If you are going through one of those seasons, chances are those around you are, too. And they could probably use some encouragement.
It may be the very last thing you feel like doing when you are going through your own rough patch, but it's the right thing to do. In fact, it's more the right thing to do when you don't feel like doing it than it is when everything in your world is peachy-keen.
Take a few moments to pray about this, asking the Lord to lay someone on your heart that you can encourage today. Do the same thing tomorrow. And again on the day after that.
You will be amazed at the myriad of ways that God will be glorified by this simple act. Glory and praise that He won't be receiving if you don't reach out and encourage others, even as you walk through your own hard times. In fact, I'd like to suggest that He might receive even more praise when you bless others even while you are in need of a blessing.
I'd love to hear how God is glorified when you reach out and encourage someone who needs it. And don't forget to be expecting God's encouragement poured out in your life as well.
Day 220 done :)
