Growing Encouragement

Being an encourager doesn’t just mean saying nice things – it’s about lifting others up at their point of need. Inspiring hope and courage when someone feels discouraged. It’s using our words, actions, and attitudes to call out the best in people. Here are some keys I’ve learned for growing encouragement in my own life and becoming more of an encourager to those around me.

• Encouragement flows from peace and joy. It springs from a heart that knows it’s fully loved by God. (Romans 5:1) When my own well is full, I have more to pour out to others.

• Optimism is at the root of true encouragement. It sees possibilities, not just problems. Encouragement “sees the possible in the impossible.” (Mother Teresa)

• Speak life-giving words. “The tongue has the power of life and death.” (Proverbs 18:21). Choose words that build others up, renew hope, and inspire action.

• Listen to understand. Before you can encourage someone, you have to truly hear them. Listening well is often the greatest act of encouragement.

• Express appreciation. “A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.” (Anonymous) Find ways regularly to show others you see and value them.

• Develop a habit of praying for and with others. “Prayer is the most powerful encourager around.” There’s no greater source of hope and strength we can point people to than God Himself.

• Accept people as they are. You don’t have to agree with or like someone’s choices to accept them as a valuable person made in God’s image. This is the first step to truly encouraging them.

encouragement is the little bit of light

“Encouragement is the oxygen of the soul.” (Alan Loy McGinnis) It breathes life and hope into people when they need it most. With practice and intentionality, we can all grow as sources of encouragement for others through our words, prayers, and simple acts of love and kindness. The world needs more encouragers – and you have the power to be one. So whose soul needs a breath of fresh air today?
