What Will Get You to the Finish Line

You’d be amazed how much God can use someone who’s really good at giving sincere, specific, timely encouragement. -Steven Furtick

One of my favorite things about running a marathon is the fans that cheer you on. Thousands of fans line up all throughout the race to encourage runners. Throughout the entire 26.2 mile journey, you hear, “Keep Going! You can do it! You’re almost there!’ over and over and over again. That encouragement keeps runners going. It helps  them push through the walls they hit. It ultimately gets them to the finish line.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.  ~Plato

You’ll find the people God will use the most in your life are the people who encourage you to keep going, no matter what. When you find these people, cherish them, invest in them, thank them often, and encourage them!

You’ll also find that the times God uses you most is when you’re encouraging others to keep going. Encourage others often. Encourage them every chance you get to.

Who are the encouragers in your life? Do they know how much they’ve impacted your life through simply encouraging you? Make sure you let them know the difference they’ve made in your life.

Encouragement changes everything.

Who can you encourage today?
