The Gift of Encouragement

Have you ever been inspired by people just by looking at them? Has anyone ever said anything to you and you found that you felt so much better afterwards? Have you ever started to feel healing taking place because someone said inspiring words to you? Anyone can speak inspiring words, and give you compliments,  but the one who speaks inspiring words that changes lives is who you should pay close attention to.  It’s a rare gift that I am all to familiar with. A person who has this gift must understand the power behind it. When God gives someone the gift of encouragement, it transcends time, place, atmosphere and opportunity. When a person with the gift of encouragement walks in a room, the atmosphere begins to transform into a serene and healing aura even before that person opens his or her mouth. Have you ever started to feel a calming sensation when you are around certain people? Take notice. There is a soothing component in the voice of someone who has the gift of encouragement. It’s like a spiritual balm that brings comfort to troubling souls.  Pay attention. When a person who has the gift of encouragement speaks, lives change. This sort of gift is not talked about often because it is rare and many do not understand it fully. It’s not something that can be taught. It’s a birth right.

People are drawn to the person with the gift of encouragement. They may not always know why they are drawn to the gifted one. Along with the gift of encouragement sometimes comes gifts of healing. Both gifts are birth rights. These gifts operate fully and daily in casual conversations, at work, in the park, at the grocery store, at home and everywhere. It is not mandatory that a person with these gifts dawn any podium, for these gifts operate where they are needed most and that’s out in the real world of everyday living. There is so much more to all of this, which I will get into at another time. However, no one can take away the years and decades of testimonies of those who have been blessed by one who carries this God-Given and bestowed inheritance. The gift of encouragement with healing is not a secret, it’s just unique and unexplored. Only a person who has lived this life,  and who has helped an infinite amount of people can speak on this subject.  What speaks louder are the results of the lives who have been touched and changed. Pay attention to how you feel when you are in the presence of someone who has these gifts. Pay attention to the tone of voice and the calmness that he or she brings. Pay attention to anything that this person may say, write or create. These God-given gifts are undeniable and are a blessing to others. There’s more than one way to be inspired and healed. You don’t have to be in a church to experience what God has given someone naturally. Pay attention. Embrace it. Be inspired. Be healed. Help others. Enjoy life.
