God never ceases to amaze me with the way that he does simply little things to encourage me!

One of the gifts that God has given me is encouragement, he's just really given me a heart that sees the growth in people and the good in them and so it's been awesome to use verses that God lays on my heart to write people encouragement notes! It's one of my favorite things to do! :)

"We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement;"  Romans 12:6-7

But even though I love to encourage and lift-up other people especially when I know they are struggling, going through a hard time or when it's completely out of the blue, sometimes i get discouraged by it. Because you see when you give someone an encouragement letter you don't get to see the effect that it has one others or how it lifted their spirits. You don't get to see the results of it.....so sometimes I forget what an impact taking the time to write out a quick note can have.

But yesterday, a parent of one of my friends was talking to me at my party and just thanking me for the note that I wrote their son and just telling me what an impact that had on him and how he was so encouraged by it! Just hearing that comment made my day, because it reminded me of why I love writing notes to people so much! It was the boost I needed to continue seeking to grow and be a good steward of the gift that God has given me.There is nothing better then encouraging other's in their walk with God and helping to remind them of truth! So grateful that God continues to use me in this way!

Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.  1 Thessalonians 5:11
