"Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."

(Proverbs 16:24)

 

This summer, our family was privileged to attend a week-long family retreat run by Joni & Friends ministry.  I was unsure if we would fit in.  We did not know anyone there.  What if there was nobody who could relate to my particular disability?    Would I have a difficult time connecting with others, especially those with mental disabilities?  I really, REALLY hoped my whole family would enjoy the retreat and be refreshed. 

 

My fears were put to rest, as throughout the week we received 11 colorful "happy grams", taped to our door.  Words of kindness, Bible verses, & welcome written on these simple slips of paper represented the extraordinary love that was extended to us all throughout that week.  It was both humbling and uplifting to be so encouraged by people that we hardly knew - many of them going through chronic trials of their own. These sweet words blessed us so much that we took the 'happy grams' home with us & hung them up.

 

There have been too many times when I have talked myself out of giving an encouraging word, because I thought it would sound silly, or be unnecessary.  But Hebrews 3:13 exhorts us to: 

 "...encourage one another daily, as long as it is called 'Today,' so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness."  

Who can you give a honeycomb of encouragement to today?  It may make a greater difference than you will ever realize.

 

 

Lord, make my words today sweet with your Holy Spirit.  May you use me to bring blessing and healing to others through my words.
