https://mcguffysreader.com/  has a project called Sparks post each week. I decided to join this project with McGuffy’s Reader to encourage others each week.  My encouragement post is called ENCOURAGEMENT.  On March 4, 2018, I was reading my morning devotions with the Lord and guess what?  The devotional reading was called Dying for Encouragement. In a nutshell, it was about a corporate accountant who committed suicide and no-one knew why. He didn’t embezzle money and that made his co-workers wonder why until a note was found and that note simply said this: In thirty years I have never had one word of encouragement. I’m fed up. My ENCOURAGEMENT quotes and reading  are: It may seem insignificant to say a word or two; but when we give encouragement, what wonders it can do!  —K. DeHaan—      My second ENCOURAGEMENT quote is: A word of encouragement can make the difference between giving up or going on. —Author Unknown—    The reading for encouragement is Deuteronomy 3:23 – 29.   So when you think your encouragement isn’t doing any good, think again. It is. When you encourage some someone make sure it is genuine encouragement(not flattery) and it will help others.

Faith Is like a mustard seed

Small but willing and able

Waiting to be nurtured

to adulthood.

Faith Is dreaming big

and doing what it takes

to reach your dreams.

Faith Is taking that leap

to build your own business.

Faith Is putting your trust

in a total stranger and

hoping your situation turns

out for the good.

Faith Is trusting and

believing in the unseen.
