Words Of Encouragement; 4 Ways To Discover That In This Life You Matter

The mind is a beautiful and dangerous thing. One second you can be on top of the world, and the next falling into the depths. Chances are good that sometime in your life you’ll need some words of encouragement. It doesn’t matter who you are, life is hard, and sometimes you need a hand.

I started writing this blog and another called SnoFall Gear about 9 months ago (at the time of this writing). When I first began blogging, I had a strong feeling I’d succeed, and make it big. This would all happen in the first 3 months and it’s awesome.

People kept giving me words of encouragement, at least for the first few months.

However 9 months in, I’m still working a construction job during the day and making grocery deliveries at night. It’s frustrating to me, and I question if I’ll ever succeed at this.

However, I’ve changed my thought process. I know that writing has helped me find an outlet. My father is dying of cancer, and I’m only now getting to know him. I cover this story in my book Hurricane Jerald if you’d like to learn more.

Encourage Someone

Sometimes you need to fail, to succeed, and whatever place you’re finding yourself in in life. Understand this:

4 Ways To Know That You Matter In Life:

  • You are here on this planet for a purpose.
  • People love you, even if you don’t feel it.
  • There is something for you to do in this world and only you can accomplish it.
  • If you need words of encouragement, ask for one in the comments below

The hard part is finding what you’re supposed to do, but if you know your strengths. Then you have a map, and the treasure is finding yourself, and who you were made to be.

What are Some Uplifting Words Of Encouragement?

I’ve been thinking long and hard about what I should write here. Many people say to stay positive and avoid negativity. However, that’s like saying avoid gluten in a bakery.

It’s almost impossible.

I will say this, you’re the only person on this planet with your skillset. God has created you to do great things, and only you can accomplish those things with perfection.

Even when you feel that you don’t matter, you do to God, he’s the one who created you, and he’s the one who loves you.

I can also state that there are more people than you think around you that care. If you feel lost, depressed, and lonely. Stop for a second, and look around. You have a purpose, and there is love out there for you. Sometimes it’s just hard to see.

Words Of Encouragement

You Were Created For A Purpose:

Before I Formed You In The Womb; I knew You…

Jeremiah 1:5

God knew you before you were created. He made you with a purpose in mind. I know some of you might not believe in God when you’re reading this, and that’s okay, he still believes in you.

Look into your heart and ask yourself. What is my purpose? If there is one thing I could do for the rest of my life and be fulfilled, What would that be?

If you can answer that question, accomplish it, go after it, and run for it because there are not many who can.

Words Of Encouragement You Are Loved.

When you’re in the depths of discouragement, it’s hard to believe you’re loved. Just last week I hit the bottom of the barrel. I yelled at God, was mad at my family, and even punched my car (it had broken down).

Have you ever done something foolish, and then someone texted or emailed you some really good words of encouragement? It’s happened to me more often than I’d like to admit.

What did my punching a car accomplish? Other than hurting my hand and feeling stupid.

Well, at least my car didn’t need an apology but my hand needed ice. The next day my family came through for me, and I was able to get everything fixed.

I couldn’t wait longer and get discouraged, my family offered words of encouragement. But it was really hard to listen.

During this time I’d forgotten about family and friends. In my mind, none of them cared. I would’ve said things I regret if they had called me. Then they came through for me and helped me out.

When you need some words of encouragement, stop and take a breath. God is there and so are family and friends. Remember, you might be blind to their presence.

How To Say Words Of Encouragement?

If a friend of mine needs some words of encouragement, I like to find something funny or stupid to say. It gets a good laugh, a snort, or a giggle, and that breaks down the walls people tend to put up.

Then I go in for the encouragement, and as I speak the truth into their life, I try and get them to speak about their discouragement. If you can find the source of pain, you can help them heal.

A lot of times we say words of encouragement to people only to have them fall back into the discouragement they experienced before. However, if we can find the source of pain and bring healing. We might be able to stop it from coming back.

Usually, this isn’t instantaneous, and it’ll take quite a few sessions, but friends around you can help.

If you’re close to the person, you can make a huge impact on their heart.

How To Give Words Of Encouragement & Inspire Others?

Words Of Encouragement

Whenever I work on a large team I find myself being the encourager. In fact, according to the strengths finder, I rank high on encouragement. Because of this I naturally flow in positivity and keep things going.

When someone does a great job, make sure you acknowledge it. Don’t do it in private either, let the whole team know. I like to have a daily team meeting and I’ll pick someone who’s doing an epic job and tell everyone how great they’re doing.

Each day pick someone new, so everyone can feel acknowledged and encouraged.

Jesus Loves You The Way You Are

Now for you the reader. I know life is hard, and sometimes it outright sucks. However, there is a God in heaven that loves you dearly. He created you and he wants to know who you are. He won’t deliver you from the trials and issues you face in life, but he’ll walk through them with you.

All you have to do is ask him to help, say Jesus I need you, and then listen to his voice. Hearing The Voice of God can be difficult, but I wrote some steps to help you when trying to hear him.

If you don’t believe in Jesus, or you hate him. I why you might. I’ve hated God before as well, and he wasn’t my favorite person a couple of days ago either. However, regardless of your feelings, he loves you.
