“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” Hebrews 3:13 NIV
Your words of encouragement are wanted around the globe and go to wherever the Spirit of Truth takes them. Even the hardest of hearts will open to the right message and many are opened each day.
Those who seek renewed hope will grasp your words like a child clutching her mother’s hand or as a wave that tries to grasp the shore. Talk to any volunteer who serves a suicide hotline and they will tell you that the right words holds people to the moment and removes that mindset of hopeless that makes death feel so right.
If your words are from the Scriptures and from a caring heart, it matters little that you do not have a degree or years of experience, it only matters that you keep sharing your love for Christ and His love for those who read your verse.
Charles Dickens once said: “A very little key will open a very heavy door.”* Charles was right.
Your words of encouragement can open the door for so many in our human experience. Write and submit often, and do support Faithwriters financially as they too are the key to reaching so many who wait upon the Spirit of Truth to send a fitting word their way.
*Charles Dickens, from “Hunted Down”
