Today’s Encouragement is coming in the form of a challenge.
Think about something you have experienced whether good or bad. Now ask God to show you someone, whether you know them, are related to them, or they are total strangers who may be experiencing something similar to what you have experienced.
Today’s challenge is to do something that will encourage them and bring a smile to their face. It can be as simple or complex as you make it, but consider this random act of kindness that will make their life just a little bit happier if for nothing more than for a moment in time.
Think about if you have lost a job and you see or know someone who is struggling in a similar situation. Consider going to the store and buy a few things that you wished you had when you were in a similar circumstance. Did you have pets during that time, but you did not know how you were going to feed them? Consider buying your person a bag of pet food. You know what it would have meant had someone done that for you. Do you have children and you have seen them hungry, but could not afford food let alone simple snacks? Consider buying some snacks that are age appropriate for your person who may be experiencing the same situation.
Have you lost a family pet that just left you devastated and lost? Consider giving your person a pet treasure box so they have a place to put their treasured pet’s favorite things. They can fill it with pictures, their favorite toys, their pet collar, their leash that will remind then of special adventures or walks they took every day. This will provide comfort to your special person.
I can think of many more suggestions, but I believe this should be enough to get your mind to thinking about what you can do for someone else who is in need of encouragement today.
Good luck as you perform this challenge. It is my prayer that as you are encouraging others, that you will be encouraged as well.
