I love flowers. I love to hear Cambree sing! I smile when Chandler smiles. I enjoy Cailee's "creations". Caden's questions bring me joy. When Clarice hugs and hangs on me, I love that she still needs me. I love watching Cameron and Cambree...he can't say "no" to her. (She, at 2, has so much power.) I love to date my husband! I love to go to church on Sunday. One of the reasons I love church is because I love seeing people. Faithfulness to God is so encouraging to watch. Faithfulness is displayed in so many ways. Seeing Marian Krause this Sunday was amazing. Her life is a blesssing. What makes you smile? What encourages you?
"First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is being reported all over the world." (Romans 1:8) Paul was so encouraged by the believers in Rome. They brought him joy. Paul says that he prays for them constantly. Do you pray for the people in your life who encourage you? Constantly... Paul prayed that he could be with them. Later in these verses it says that Paul wants to be with them so they could both be encouraged. Do you make time to be with people who encourage you?
This week identify who encourages you. Pray for them and spend sometime together. And last...smile.
