I pray you are (or will soon be) having a blessed day. If you linked here from my devotion The Power of Encouraging Words, I’m so glad you stopped by! I’m amazed at what God can do with encouraging words. They can literally change the course of someone’s life. I know because they have mine. More about that tomorrow.
A few years ago, my friend Carrie came up with the idea to “Bless It Forward” inspired by the movie Pay it Forward. Today I pray that we’ll bless each other forward by encouraging and getting encouragement through the stories and lives of women around the world!!
“Bless It Forward” starts when you give a blessing to someone else and ask them to bless it forward to another person. Here is how we can start blessing it forward this week:
First, I’ll be giving several of you a gift, and then I want you to pass the blessing on when you are finished being blessed by it. The blessings will include a P31 autographed book, a worship CD, a teaching DVD, a P31 woman magazine subscription and $10 Target card.
Second, being part of the first blessing has a two-fold purpose. To enter to win, I want you to share how someone’s encouragement in the past has impacted your life, and in turn you will inspire others to bless it forward by encouraging someone they know today. Let’s get started.
Click on “comments” below this post.
Type your comment. A white box will pop up where I’d love for you to describe one way someone has encouraged you – either another person or something God did. It doesn’t have to be anything big. Just something that brought encouragement to your heart. God will use your story to show others how they can encourage someone today.
Include the following details: your state and/or country, your name if you want to, and be sure to leave your email so I can contact you if you win.
Post your comment. Click on the orange button to post it. If you don’t have a blogger account, simply click anonymous.
Take time to read the other comments and ask God to show you an idea and a person He wants you to encourage today – either through a note, a call, a text message, an act of kindness or something you get here.
Come back tomorrow to tell us how you have or will bless it forward through the power of encouraging words this week. To remind yourself to come back, scroll down the right margin and sign up for bloglines. You’ll get a notice in the morning when I open up my blog for new comments and more chances to win!
With today’s comments I’ll draw 3 winners and with tomorrows commitments I’ll draw the other 2 winners to bless it forward. I’ll do the drawings and announce Wednesday morning who the the winners are for my “Bless It Forward” give-aways. I can’t wait to see what God will do.
