“Sometimes, we already know all the lines. Believe me, we know.
We know that our suffering will not last for a lifetime.
We know that our struggles will end someday soon.
We know that tomorrow may truly be better.
We understand that a happy disposition is better than a sad one.
We realize that our pain will heal and fade away.
We still need someone to say to us ‘don’t worry. don’t be sad. don’t cry’. We still want to hear the words ‘everything will be okay’.
Hearing the phrase ‘tomorrow will be better’ awakens our spirit and gets us on our feet.
having someone say to us ‘Do not be afraid’, ‘be of good cheer my friend, my brother, my sister, my neighbor’ never gets old.
Finally when they say to us ‘it is well with you’, our hearts begin to soar in the clearer skies of relief.
Believe me, this world can never tire for an oversupply of encouragers.”
