One type of blessing that always touches me is when someone comes to me and says, “God placed this scripture on my heart and I believe He wants me to share it with you.” I’ve had that happen several times in my life, and I still remember them clearly and those passages are some of the dearest to my heart. When I’m down or feeling burdened I still go back to the scriptures given to me by friends along the journey.

Sometimes I think that sometimes we lose the importance and beauty of speaking blessings over each other. Thankfully, I worship with a family that still faithfully believes in the power of praying over and blessing brothers and sisters. Speaking truth to the hearts of brothers and sisters is one of the vital roles we have as a Christian family, especially when the world saturates us with lies. I pray that you will feel moved speak a blessing over someone in your life. It may be what gives them the strength to fight another day.

Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
–Proverbs 16:24
