Welcome to my blog. I’m happy you stopped by and hope you will find your time spent here leaving you feeling motivated by encouragement and uplifted in love. I am also humbled that God has appointed me with this ministry to help others in this way. There have been many times in my life that I’ve felt a need for encouragement or a word from a friend or fellow saint that would spur me on to higher levels of success and “ you-can-do-it”, to inspiration toward ideas and a boost of self-esteem that “I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength.” [Philippians 4:13]

On this site you will find snippets from Scripture and other inspirational quotes, hopefully, to give you what you need. This blog –  new, fresh and still in infancy, was borne from sending morning inspirational texts that quickly spiraled from three family members to a long list of friends, co-workers and even my former pastor. Most times, those texts came from my morning Bible Study, was what I needed and wanted to share the same comfort, boost for the challenging work day ahead.

I take no credit. Those text messages and this blog were not something I thought of myself, but God placed a burden on my heart to minister to and continue encouraging others by in making a difference in peoples’ lives. All glory, praise and honor belong to God for allowing me the privilege to do this in His name.

I pray that you will be encouraged and inspired in whatever you have been called to do. I feel if a smile was brought to someone’s face, that a weight has been lifted off someone’s shoulder, that someone was even comforted, then this is all worth it.

Be Encouraged

    • Hello Carol. I am so happy for your message and desire to follow my blog. You can visit me at http://www.bncouragedbylove.wordpress.com where you will see other posts and can opt to follow. I apologize I do not know where that “button” will be, but I have selected from other blogs I follow. The main reason I am happy that you contacted me is because it motivates and encourages me to get back to what the Lord put in my heart months ago. I have not posted anything since last February and I am very ashamed of that. Sometimes we allow other things keep us from doing what we are chosen to do – not that it is a viable excuse, but I have been going through job closing, financial and emotional issues. Please keep me in prayer, as I will your encouragement ministry. p.s. where can I find you on facebook? Take care, look forward to hearing from you. ~ Laura
