Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop, but a good word maketh it glad. -Proverbs 12:25
IN THE HEART, mind, soul, OF A MAN MAKES IT
Makes you lay up and lay out
BUT A GOOD, an enCOURAGING WORD MAKES IT GLAD (brighten up, cheer up).
Cheer, tharseo, translated from the Greek means be of good comfort and be of good courage.
Jesus is our ultimate enCOURAGER! Be encouraged by his words:
Son, be of good cheer; your sins are given you. (Matthew 9:2)
Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you whole. (Luke 8:48)
Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. (Mark 6:50)
Be of good cheer, rise, he is calling you. (Mark 10:49)
Be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33
Be enCOURAGED today!
You are loved.
You are beautiful.
You are simply gorgeous.
You are needed.
You are giving.
You are gracious.
You are kind.
You are smart.
You are important.
You are His beloved.
Some of the best advice I every received from a lawyer friend was:
“Gurl, get up every morning! Look in the mirror and say: ‘I AM LUSCIOUS!’”
I enCOURAGE you to encourage yourself and others with good words. Do no talk to yourself any different than you would talk to me. COURAGE UP! You are luscious!
