Everyone Needs a Sharon Kessler

But you can’t have MY Sharon Kessler! Well, she is not “mine,” not really, but Sharon’s words of encouragement certainly make my life more present in God’s love.

Surely self-doubt is the writer’s constant companion. Just as surely, a kind word from a smart friend is the writer’s constant encouragement. Sharon’s encouraging presence in my life reminds me of the truth of these Bible verses:

1 Thessalonians 5:11: “Therefore encourage one another and build up each other.”

Hebrews 3:13: “But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.”

James 5:16: “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.”

I hope I am “Sharon Kessler” to someone else today!
