A lot of different things and situations result to the need for encouragement words.What I am trying to say is that from time to time we are confronted with certain situations that calls for more than just experience and a drive to make it. If you are not sure about what to say on what occasion especially in terms of bible verse about encouragement then take a few minutes to go through this short but important post.
The Loss of a loved one
Losing someone you love is not easy and if you know someone who needs some encouragement words then do take the time to share something positive. They need to hear good things and positive talk. Be weary of overdoing it. It is important to say the right things all the time or else you will exacerbate the situation.
Grieving people go through various phases of grief and you need to be sensitive to understand the grieving process and what words to say at each stage.
Someone starting a new job
Being in a new office can be overwhelming for most people. If you know someone who has just started in a new job then you better think of ways to make that person settle in. If the person has a good sense of humour, just write him or her some poems of hope and encouragement about being in a new job.
Someone living in a foreign country
Being in a foreign country can be so frustrating especially if you can not understand the local language. You may start asking yourself what you are doing there anyway and missing home is inevitable. In fact a friend of mine fell into a major depression 2 weeks after moving into a new country. This person spent two months seriously ill due to depression.
There are many more people who need to be encouraged from time to time. These include those who are sick and those in prisons. So while you are going about basking in the fulfilment of your life, do take sometime to say a positive word to someone who needs it.
In life there are a lot of reasons why we feel the need for some encouragement.I mean often times we are faced with certain circumstances that calls for more than just experience and a drive to make it. If you are not sure about what to say on what occasion importantly in terms of biblical encouragement then take a few minutes to go through this short but insightful post.
Losing someone you love
Someone who has lost a loved one needs someone who can speak positively about the situation. They need to be told everything is okay and the person who has died will live forever in their memories. Be weary of overdoing it. It is important to say the right things all the time or else you will exacerbate the situation.
Let me emphasize and say that when you are trying to encourage someone who is grieving, you need to be skilful and very sensitive.
Someone new at work
Being in a new office can be overwhelming for most people. If you have a friend who has just started in a new job then you better think of a way to make him or her comfortable and at ease. If the friend enjoys a good laugh, just write him or her some Christian poem on encouragement if you are trying to help a Christian person about the first day at work.
Someone in a new country
Being in a new country can be so intimidating especially if you can not understand the local language. One of the predominant feelings are anxiety and being home sick. In fact a friend of mine fell into a major depression 2 weeks after moving into a new country. This person spent two months seriously ill due to depression.
Other people who need to be encouraged from time to time include, married couples, someone who is sick and probably in hospital and people locked up in prison. As you live through each day, always remember that someone needs you to share some few inspirational words.
It is not always easy to handle a break up after a relationship has ended. Don’t follow them around try to get them back into the relatioship. Calling them endlessly and pleading with them to see how much the relationship means to you won’t work either.
I am not saying that you should cut all communication, but you need to take a step back and give this person time to think things through without you being labeled a problem in the process.If you are going to call the person avoid talking about the relationship, talk about other things approach the whole thing from an angle of friendship. If the problem was temporary and your partner just needed some time alone then it should wear off.
If however the relationship is over and the chances of getting back have been narrowed down from slim to zero don’t worry your life must go on. There are lots of people who you would rather be with anyway. You still have your friends and family there for you. Just give yourself time and focus on moving on.
This is where you normally get told to go out a lot and hang out with friends and spend lots of time in other peoples company and so on. Yes this does help until of course that odd moment when you are alone and your mind wonders off back to the past. So besides spending time with other people you should think about the things that you enjoy doing on your own.
Even if you think it doesn’t count for much, If it keeps your mind away from your relationship then stick with it. People have a variety of things that they enjoy, like reading movies, playing sport, traveling and so on. Even if it’s just sitting in front of your computer and doing whatever, being alone shouldn’t make you feel awkward. These are just some tips and ideas, you can find sites where this whole subject is opened up, broken down and made so simple getting over a break won’t be the heartache you think it is.
There are some situations in my life where the difference between letting go and holding on were the words someone said to me and helped me regain my focus.Even though a solution might not be readily available but being able to share your problem does help and answers usually come on their own after that.
Sometimes it might be something that might not have a solution, maybe you have lost someone that you loved and were close to you and that emptiness and despair isn’t going away. Some people may not understand what you are going through but there are those that can.
One thing that you must bear in mind is that getting over any hurt, pain or disappointment in our lives is a conscious and mental decision that you must take. You cannot expect that some of these things will go away on their own or over a period of time. Sometimes we have to stand up boldly and walk away leaving it all behind.
It is always easier to talk to someone that has shared similar experience with me because at least they understand me better. I know the advice they are giving me is practical. So sometimes talking to the people around you will help in as far as expressing yourself goes but being understood is not guaranteed.
You will be able to find sites that offer words of encouragement from people who have faced similar circumstances as you. Sometimes you just need to hear some uplifting words so that you start the day on a good note or improve on your confidence. Whatever the situation you will find the words meant for you.
