Did you know that to encourage means to impart courage?

By having courage, we have strength in the face of fear and we make a conscious decision not to let fear control us.  It also means stepping forward into the unknown when fear is grabbing onto our ankles, but we fight anyway and break free holding onto the trust and hope of God, who is love.

Love is not just a feeling or emotion.  It is an action.  It is a choice to live in a way that will touch others, inspire them and change their lives too.

So encourage one another.  Love one another.  It takes courage to love like Christ.

Ephesians 4:29 (NLT)

“Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.”
