Encouragement from the heavens
Want some encouragement today? I’m not joking. Go outside and look up to the heavens. It
doesn’t matter if you look silly, just go out and look up!
The point is, encouragement can come from anywhere in nature like plants, trees, insects, the soil,
and so on.
Encouragement From Your Imagination
But did you know that if you look up to the clouds you can ‘make out’ so many things that you can
take encouragement from? Like, a praying hand, an angel, a pillow (signifying rest), an aeroplane,
a boat, leaves? Go ahead, look up and see what you see.
But what if it’s a cloudy day? Well, there is more in nature that you can look to! The ant is such a
strong animal! And have you noticed how well they work together in teams? We could take
encouragement from that!
What of birds, bees, insects? In their own way, the way they live is a form of encouragement to us.
The bible says that our Heavenly Father watches over us, even though His eye is also on the
sparrow. Now that’s not to say that things will always be smooth sailing and rosy! No! Things are
never going to be perfect in this life but at least we are never alone as there is always someone
looking out for us.
Encouragement to Someone Else
Do you know someone who is having a hard time and who needs to be encouraged? Tell them to
look up to the heavens and be encouraged. Do a good deed today Give someone some encouragement. My simple message for you reading this now is that no matter what you are going through, it can get better. There are lots of people who have been through worse and they have come through smiling. God is able, (and sometimes He has another plan) so look up to the heavens, look for your sign, and take that as your encouragement for today. And don’t forget to share that encouragement with someone else to strengthen them.
Are you good at budgeting and being smart with money? Why not help someone else who might be struggling?
