Encourage the Encourager

 I’d like to think of myself as an encourager. I really like thinking positively. It’s very easy for me to do for you, but it can be a chore sometimes to think positively for myself. But I’ve really been working on that. Things don’t always go the way I’d like them to, but I still know I’m blessed. I have many things for which to be thankful, even on bad days.

 My challenge for you this week is to encourage the encourager!  I have had several people in last few days ask how I am,  which makes me grateful!! In the 1st chapter of Joshua, he is described as a leader who was responsible for encouraging 1000s but 1st HE had to be encouraged as God told him 3 times to be strong and courageous!  Without God’s Word of encouragement fear would have overcome Joshua!  When no one else encourages me I know that God always does!  Through and in Him I know that I will be strong and courageous for any uncertainties (career, family, finance, etc…).

 You may find it difficult but again I challenge you to encourage someone this week that you normally don’t!

Blessings to All,

Chaplain Coker
