When you need just a little encouragement…

I wish we could sit down to coffee today.

I’d lean across the table and say, 

“I’m a little tired. Just a little discouraged.

It happens sometimes.”

And you’d tell me how you felt too.

Then we’d remind each other of what’s true…

that even on the upside-down days

we’re loved, chosen, and we belong to the One

who’s promised to make it {and us} okay again. 

So let’s keep going, my friends, 

and dare to end this week 

with a little bit more joy than when it started.

What do you say?

I will if you will.

So, what encouraging words would you share with me if we really did have coffee today?


p.s. Thursday the 29th from 3:30 to 4 I’ll be on Living Inspired with Tricia Goyer. You can listen online by clicking this link: http://toginet.com/shows/livinginspired/articles/2439
