Do you ever think, “What if this was my last day on earth.”?
Ok. Maybe it’s just me. But I do think that from time to time. I wonder if I’ve invested enough into my family and friends and church. And if I’m being honest with myself, which isn’t always easy, I have to answer…No.
I assume people know I love them. I figure that so and so knows that I believe in them. I think, “doesn’t she know I care?” Then I ask myself…When is the last time you told them how you felt, Tam?
This week I
had took the opportunity to tell someone very close to me how I felt about them. I expressed how much I believe in them. I, hopefully, spoke truth, encouragement and life into them. And I realized…I don’t do this enough. There are so many people around me that I look at and admire so greatly, yet, I never tell them.
Why? I don’t have an answer for that question.
So, I am making a July resolution (it’s a new thing. all the cool kids are doing it.) and I am being intentional and mindful to tell my loved ones how I feel about them. Too often I see an admirable quality in someone and I neglect to confirm them.
When is the last time you were confirmed? To know that someone believes in you is so powerful.
Is there someone in your life that needs a word of encouragement or affirmation? Let’em know you believe in them. It won’t only bless them…it’ll bless you.
“Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act.” ~ Prov 3:27
