An Immeasurable Gift

Recently I had someone believe in me. They believed in me in a way I couldn’t and I can’t tell you what it did to me and for me. They saw me not for who I was, but for who I could be.

By the way, God has done this throughout history. He changed

Abrams name to Abraham. Simon would be called Peter. He was and is always believing and calling the best out of people.

One of the most amazing gifts you can give the people around you is a simple belief IN THEM.

So who is it? Who do you need to believe in today in a way they can’t believe in themselves?

Your spouse who’s doubting a decision?

A friend who’s going through a difficult time?

One of your children who’s struggling in a sport or at school?

An employee that’s just off their game a little?

Maybe you’ll express it through a spoken word that lands on their soul or a simple hug that gives them hope. Maybe it will be a note you’ll hand them that gives them confidence or a glance which communicates it all.

Either way you’ll give them a gift. A gift they can’t give themselves in that moment. You’ll give them the confidence to be the person God has created them to be.

So who needs you to believe in them today?

    Sometimes I wonder if the one I need to believe in more is me. :)

    Thank you for the reminder, Pete. I can vividly remember the times that people have encouraged me and believed in me and the difference that it’s made. I just usually forget to turn around and bless others in the same way. I’m on the hunt now, though, for someone to believe in today and good ways to communicate it.

    Good thoughts Pete. As I think about it, my kids need that type of belief more than anyone else right now. I notice a huge difference in my son especially when he knows that we are behind him and supporting him! I need to slow down and think about how I can support him and encourage him. It is a consistent daily choice to do this. Thanks for the reminder!
