How can you uplift your friends when you’re not in the same place? Today we’re going to explore how we can encourage our friends from afar, through a simple text message. Don’t save encouragement for the weekend As a teenager, I find that all my God ‘stuff’ like youth group and church all happen at the end of the week. In theory, I don’t have a problem with this—but I know that the inspiration and encouragement of meeting together to praise God often doesn’t last by the time Wednesday rolls around. It was for this reason that a group of friends I met at a Christian camp decided to send each other a weekly text of encouragement. This sometimes looks like a long-winded paragraph about how our weeks are going, and others are as simple as “Remember to read your Bible,” or “I am praying for you.” Even though these messages only consume about ten seconds of our weeks, it’s a boost all of us have come to appreciate. Not only do I keep in touch with people I don’t get to see regularly, but I have something extra to look forward to each week. Give your friends the motivation to keep going Being a Christian isn’t easy at school. It’s hard to keep going when we constantly feel judged and rejected by our peers for believing in God. So checking my phone during a day filled with challenges and seeing the words “I am praying for you” is really uplifting. It’s these simple words of encouragement that keep me going throughout the week. CONTINUE READING HERE:
