"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."
1 Thessalonians 5:11

There are at least two significant moments where encouragement changed the course of my entire life.

The first was my sophomore year in high school.  I was a skinny undersized football player trying to play on the line.  I almost didn't go out for the team, but after one of our pre-season scrimmages, my coach, Bob Flury, built me up in a way that encouraged me to press on.  He saw potential in me and gave me the advice of 'all I needed to do was get bigger.'

Those simple words of encouragement spurred me on to stick with football instead of quitting like I planned.

The other moment was during my college junior football season.  I started out undersized once again, but managed to build myself up and earn a scholarship.  I was frustrated because I wasn't getting playing time.

I remember the night before a big game against the University of North Dakota.  I was a back up to a guy named Ryan.  He told me not to get down on myself.  He looked me in the eyes and said "I'm serious dude - you're good, so believe in yourself."   His timing was impeccable since I was having some doubts because of my lack of playing time.

The next day he blew his knee out on the first play of the game.  This thrust me into action at a crucial time in the season.  His kind words of encouragement rang in my ears and I played with confidence and remained the starter on our conference championship team.

It's amazing how simple words of encouragement can change someone's life.  I know firsthand.

Right now, many people are feeling discouraged and have lost faith in themselves.

Are you one of those people?  Are you struggling financially?  Maybe your relationship has taken a beating.  Is your health in jeopardy?
