Healing, Pain, Walking Beside the Weak & Wounded, Words of Endurance

There is a time for everything,
and everything on earth has its special season.
There is a time to be silent
and a time to speak.
ECCLESIASTES 3:1,7 (NCV)



While there is definitely a time to be silent and listen when walking beside the weak and wounded– there is also a time to speak life-giving words of encouragement and comfort.



The right word spoken at the right time
is as beautiful as gold apples in a silver bowl.
PROVERBS 25:11 (NCV)



But remember …



When you talk, do not say harmful things,
but say what people need—
words that will help others become stronger.
Then what you say will do good to those who listen to you.
EPHESIANS 4:29 (NCV)



Let thy speech be better than silence – or be silent.
DIONYSIUS THE ELDER



Encouraging and comforting words are healing physically, emotionally and spiritually.



Words of comfort, skillfully administered,
are the oldest therapy known to man.
LOUIS NIZER



An anxious heart weighs a man down,
but a kind word cheers him up.
PROVERBS 12:25



Pleasant words are like a honeycomb,
making people happy and healthy.
PROVERBS 16:24 (NCV)



And you will find that as you bless the weak and wounded with your life-giving words – you too will be blessed.



The world is full of discouragers.
We have a Christian duty to encourage one another.
Many a time a word of praise or thanks or appreciation or cheer
has kept a man on his feet.
Blessed is the man who speaks such a word.
WILLIAM BARCLAY



So encourage each other
and give each other strength
1 THESSALONIANS 5:11 (NCV)



On the journey with you,
Dave & Jan Dravecky
