I believe words of encouragement are such an important part of our journey. They become part of us. They remind us who we are and what we are capable of. They spur us on to do courageous things. They keep bringing us back to the truth when we need a good reminder.
Those that take time to encourage others, who use their words of kindness and wisdom to push back fear and self-doubt, those beautiful souls that know the power of their words to bless and strengthen, they are the ones on the front line, fighting battles that many others miss.
Today I am so thankful to have beautiful people in my life that speak those words, that give me the courage to stay brave.
I treasure those words, I hold them close.
Never underestimate the power of your words to encourage someone. You could be the very reason they brave the unknown.
