In preparation for the National Day of Encouragement that takes place every 12th September, we have teamed up with DaySpring in the #EncouragementDare to dare people everywhere to reach beyond their comfort zones and take action in the #EncouragementDare from September 10th -15th. We dare you to go out of your way to encourage those around you.
While it’s no secret that God calls us to encourage one another, sometimes the thought of reaching out in constant support of those around us can seem daunting. Or, maybe we know we should say something, but we just don’t have the right words. Or, it could be that we are just too busy to see anything or anyone outside of our daily tasks and schedule.
DaySpring has prepared loads of helpful tools and resources like free Ecards and downloads. It’s called the “encouragement kit” to help you shine God’s light.
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up.1 Thessalonians 5:11

Most times it’s those closest to us that need the most encouragement. Reach out to your spouse, children, parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles and let them know how much you care. It could change the dynamics of your entire household.
Since the 1st of September, I have been more deliberate in encouraging others through my words and actions. One of which is I offered to take care of my friend’s daughter throughout the month of September so she can focus on her work and even though she wanted to pay me for the service, I told her I would be watching and caring for her daughter for free. She was beyond excited and happy too and I, however, happy I could lighten someone else’s burden. It feels so good. #EncouragementDare

It’s tough enough in the world, so do your absolute best to help lighten other people’s burden and not add to it. If encouraging your loved ones is what you have done on a daily basis, it’s time to take it up a notch by reaching out to encourage people you don’t know. Definitely not easy but would totally worth it.
