A Podcast About Encouragement
Building One Another
Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. I Thessalonians 5:11
Lift Up Your Knees!
Late one afternoon I was jogging around a high school track and let’s just say I wasn’t exactly flying around that oval. On the other side of the track the high school track coach was working with one student. I could hear the coach holler to his runner:
Lift those knees!
Square your shoulders!
Lengthen your stride!
Pick up your pace!
I suddenly realized I was flying around the track at a terrific rate of speed (for me)!
I’d squared my own shoulders, was lifting my knees and stepping higher, lengthening my stride and picking up my pace. The voice of the coach prodded me into action!
The voice of the Spirit of the God is prodding you in a similar way:
“Lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees.” Hebrews 12:12
“Seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden.” Matthew 11:28
May you hear the voice of the Spirit prodding you to draw near to the Lord who loves you dearly and who has already drawn near to you!

Scripture from the ESV
How are you doing - how is your own spirit? The Lord who loves you is speaking words of encouragement to you - to lift your knees - lift your heart and be refreshed!
Who is some one in your life who is a bit down? Discouraged? In what way will you come alongside and offer words of encouragement?
Our heart is to encourage your heart and to encourage you to encourage others.Read More
