An encouraging word! Romans 15:4

Hello again everyone,
Too many thoughts going around in this head of mind that I feel like I need to share.  In Romans 15:4, we are reminded of the importance of knowing Scripture.  The verse goes on to say that they give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God's promises.  I just spoke to a friend of mine via email and I was reminded of a simple thing that can be 'life saving'!  Encouraging words are like medicine to the soul.  When you're down, and sometimes you can't pinpoint why you're down, a few words of encouragement may be what is needed to get you out of that huge 'sinkhole'!  We often feel like the weight of the world is on our shoulders and we try and carry it alone.  God has much broader shoulders than we do and He is capable of carrying that plus much more.  In James 1:3-4, we are reminded, For when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.  So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be strong in character and ready for anything.  Brothers and sisters, when you read a Scripture that really touches you, share it with a friend because it could be the life raft they need in order to stay a float!
Your brother in Christ,
