In times of hardship and struggle we seek encouragement that we are on a path to fulfillment. Encouragement is one of the gifts of grace we can find within ourselves and others. We can find encouragement in the home, work, church - wherever we are. When we lend a kind ear, vent to others, or simply make someone laugh, we are encouraging them to find their joy again.
Encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. — 1 Thessalonians 5:11
We should reflect on times when we found comfort from others and comforted those around us and understand that we will not be without this for long.
Encouraging moment of the day: How have you encouraged those around you? Check in on a friend and encourage them to achieve goals they are trying to reach!

John 16:33 "I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."
When we hit roadblocks on our path we often lose hope and fear that it will lead us astray. We must not take an obstacle as a call to stop us. We experience trials in our day-to-day life, we argue with significant others, but we do not throw the relationship away. Instead we take a moment, reflect on the situation, and find a solution with our partner and the Lord. We have to stand firm in that we are following His path for us. We are meant to experience these trials in order to grow and understand more about our world.
Encouraging moment of the day: What is a trial you experienced that you feel shaped you into who you are today?
