For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
– Jeremiah 29:11
Encouragement is the oxygen of the soul.
– John M. Maxwell
For many, there is hardly anything better than being told by someone else that we are doing a good job. When we are just about to quit at something, a word of encouragement can keep us going. Someone’s smile can brighten our miserable day. A genuine, unexpected hug can give us the strength to get through a tough time.
