of the shape you are in,
your worth in the eyes of those who
love you will never diminish.
A well-known speaker started his seminar
by holding up a $20 bill.
In the room of 200,
he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?" Hands started going up.
He said, "I am going to give this $20
to one of you but first,
let me do this."
He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill up.
He then asked,
"Who still wants it?"
Still the hands were up in the air.
Well, he replied what if I do this?
And he dropped it on the ground
and started to grind it with his shoe.
He picked up the now crumpled bill and dirty.
"Now who still wants it?"
Still the hands went up into the air.
"My friends, you have
all learned a valuable lesson.
No matter what I did to the money,
it did not decrease its value.
It was still worth $20."
Many times in our lives,
we are dropped, crumpled,
and ground into the dirt
by the decisions we make and
the circumstances that come our way.
We feel as though we are worthless.
But no matter what happened
or what will happen,
you will never lose your value.
Dirty or clean,
crumpled or finely crushed,
you are still priceless
to those who love you.

Your pleas shall be answered,
but wait patiently for the Lord to respond.
Do not lose hope.
WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
When we encourage each other;
the God of love and peace
will be with you.
Putting courage into the heart
of someone who is dis-couraged
(at risk of losing courage,
heart, and giving up).
Who is the best suited
for giving an encouraging word?
Most people are not cut from the courage cloth.
Maybe you are someone who struggles
to find the courage to step out in faith.
As a result of your own struggle,
you become the perfect person
to give an encouraging word.
You can relate! You have been there, too!
The blessing that accompanies giving a word
of encouragement is that, in the process,
you frequently find you have encouraged yourself.
God is the source of courage.
God is the reason you can continue to believe.

It is a wise decision to encourage
someone today who needs it; we can
be it with a hopeful word or a good deed.
