It seems that anyone and everyone can share their problems with you, but not many share encouragement. Why?
Is everyone so beat up? Yikes
God help me to be an encourager, not a whiner. Life does have GOOD in it, we just need to look for it. Help me to see the good, and to share the good.
True story: I listened to a few people lately who were complaining to me about life problems. My first reaction was, “wow, it sounds good to hear someone else’s problems and not focus on my own.” Horrible first reaction, but then I realized … “Hey! We’re supposed to be over-comers, so let’s overcome!”
I need to focus on good stuff, so I can help others to do the same.
But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not:and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
