I have been struggling with encouragement lately. I wonder sometimes if I ever encourage someone too much or maybe I am not doing enough to encourage them. I also find myself wondering if I am encouraging them to get healthy but only in the physical aspect, could I do more for their spiritual health, too?
When I use the words "them", "someone", "they", etc.. I am not just talking about my family and close friends I am referring to everyone to I come in contact with on a daily basis. I work on a college campus so I encounter many faces throughout my day, not always the exact same ones each day.
There seems to be no exact answer to any of my questions. For this Type A girl that's annoying, ha! I do hope that every day I make someone think just a little harder about their spiritual walk or their fitness journey. That's not to say I am not on a perfect path toward either but I am trying! I'm giving it my all and I give him praise throughout the highs and lows. I'm facing each struggle with a smile (even a cracked smile some days) because I know in the end God will bring me through it to a better place.
As the above picture states "Encouragement is the fuel on which hope runs." I will work harder to be that fuel for others every day! You never know when someone might need that extra little push.
