Good Wednesday Morning, Friends!!! My Soul Intention: More encouragement; less praise. Constant praise and enabling someone to continue their self-destructive ways isn’t love, it’s pity. When you’re successful everyone’s your friend, but when you’re struggling and feeling defeated those friends become busy. Everyone remembers the encouragers in their life. They’re the ones who came along, inspired, and restored your hope, motivating you to keep going toward your goal.
