Proverbs 12:25 – “Anxiety weighs down the heart, but a kind word cheers it up.”
Life has a way of throwing curveballs at us. When we are ducking from each ball that is thrown our way, it can cause some anxiety and worry.
One day last week, I was having a tough day. It felt like the weight was heavy on my shoulders. Sometimes when we don’t realize it, we can allow problems to overwhelm us. But, then out of the blue, I received two text messages with encouraging words. Each one was from someone who had no idea what I was dealing with at that moment.
Isn’t God amazing? He always brings us what we need. The kind words took the burden off me. I suddenly felt lighter in my spirit and a sense of relief in knowing that God is still with me. We never know how we can touch others in our lives. When someone comes across our minds, it is never a coincidence.
God has a plan, and He will direct our steps in every situation. We don’t have to worry or be anxious. God will get a message to us reminding us that He is right here with us. We never have to go alone on this journey. Let’s love one another and show kindness daily. Just one kind word can bring encouragement to someone to keep moving forward. Hold on, help is on the way, just take it day by day.
Dear Lord, I thank you for the people in my life. You always hear my prayers, and you see my struggles. Help me to hear messages that come from you. I want to delight in your presence daily. Remove my anxiety and worry. Take these burdens and replace them with peace in my heart. Show me how to be kind and share encouragement with others. In Jesus name, amen.
