Life-Giving Words

It always happens.

Just when I’m feeling discouraged, or aimless, and wondering if I should keep up with writing, God sends a word.

It comes to me in the form of a person. A person who offers life-giving words of affirmation. Someone who reads my words and encourages me with theirs.

This reminds me that if one person is encouraged or finds hope or realizes they are not alone in the struggle, it is worth it to keep going with the blog. To keep writing.

So thank you, Friends. You know who you are.

You are the one I don’t know who came up to me in church today to tell me that you read. The one during the craziness of VBS week who told me you were encouraged by a post. The one who texted when I was out of town, excited for me about this (go ahead, click on it and see what it is!) and who continues to encourage my heart.

There are many of you who offer life giving words, not just to me, but to those around you.

Guess what?

They matter.

Thank you.

Thanks for heart-composting with me! I appreciate your words.
