This is one of my biggest encouragers!  He is also my #MCM (Man Crush Monday).  I love love love my man.

This is one of my biggest encouragers! He is also my #MCM (Man Crush Monday). I love love love my man.

Each day I try to find inspiration through something. It may be as simple as sitting on my back porch listening to the birds and watching the squirrels (as I’m doing now). They remind me to speak out, communicate, prepare for days ahead, work hard, be mindful of my surroundings, and be free…all while I’m being still and allowing God to speak to me and through me. (Wow! I just realized how many great lessons just being still and observing these critters in my backyard can be for my walk with Christ!)

The past couple of days I’ll been encouraged by reading a book. To those who know me…THAT isn’t something I commonly do. I do enjoy reading, but I often get distracted and simply do not allow myself to sit still long enough to finish a book. This one is a quick and entertaining read, and I’m inspired to be creative and be determined and intentional in my activities.

Listening to music stimulates me as well. Recently I heard a new song being sung in church, and when I listened to those words and allowed God to open my heart to the meaning of the lyrics…I was blown away! It not only encouraged me, yet reminded me that God can make anyone clean through any circumstance in our lives.

We are to encourage one another and help each other grow stronger in faith (1 Thessalonians 5:11), so…on this Monday morning, please allow me to encourage you.

As you are getting ready for your day, remember to:

    • Clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Forgive. Love. Let peace rule in your heart. Colossians 3:12-14 (simplified).
    • Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32
    • Be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry. James 1:19

Okay, so there is the ONE book that I do read daily…it’s the bible. That’s where my true inspiration comes from, and I wanted to share some encouraging with you from it.

I pray you have a fabulous day. Whatever you are going through, take the time to find inspiration and be an encourager to someone.

Blessings to you and yours. Enjoy soaking up The Son wherever you are. Stephanie
