Encourage, Inspire, and Love Others Through A Text

Looking for a great way to connect with, encourage, inspire, and love on others? Text them!

In just a few minutes, you can:

Just as “A little yeast will make all the dough rise.” (Galatians 5:9), a little encouragement can make a powerful difference on a difficult day.

FOUR TIPS FOR TEXTING THOSE WHO ARE STRUGGLING

  1. Keep it short. When we’re hurting, it can be difficult to process too much information, but a short message can be easily read and re-read.
  2. Don’t expect a response. When we’re struggling, we might not have the energy to respond, but that doesn’t mean your text didn’t mean the world to us.
  3. Write from your heart. Just be you and share a little love.
  4. Don’t skip the emojis! Body language, tone of voice, emotion, and facial expression are lost in text, so as goofy as it seems, adding an emoji or two can convey those feelings for you.

  • Today, I pray God will fill your soul from the wellspring of His love. Amen.
  • May God hold you gently in His Hands today, His peace washing over you and soaking deep. Amen.
