  1. WOW–those really spoke from God to you to me!! I was diagnosed with breast cancer on Friday & have no idea what I am facing..I certainly need encouragement & prayers. Thanks.

    • Frances,

      Praying for almighty God to give you a calm, peace about this diagnosis! May you feel His love, grace & mercy wrapped all around you as you search for answers!

    • Frances,
      I’ll be praying for you. I’m a three year survivor. Write #1 on a sticky note and out in your bathroom mirror. It’s true. May God wrap you in his healing embrace and give you peace thru your journey.
      God’s love,
      Carolyn Bonner…Georgia

      • Thank you Carolyn. I live in FL so we are neighbors..reckon that makes us soul sisters.

    • Frances, prayers lifted up for you.

      No matter what lies ahead, He has a Great plan for you. He loves You and He is right there Beside you, not looking down from some far away place. Talk to Him and trust in Him.

      • Hi Penny, A long time phrase is “A Penny for your thoughts”. Well, your thoughts are wonderful – thanks!

  2. Beautiful and encouraging, each and every one. I may print this to put on my fridge. 🙂

  3. @ Frances – May the Great Physician be your strength and comfort, take away all fear, grow you in trust, and surround you with His love as you face this difficult time. He did that for me when I was diagnosed in January. Treatments are done and I’m doing very well. May His healing touch be upon you! God bless!

  4. Thank you for today’s post! I just needed those encouraging tweets! Some of them made me laugh, smile or think aboute. Thank you for tons of blessings trough (in)courage! 😉

  5. Although I don’t tweet, these sayings were phenomenal. They are affirmations that make me focus on Father God and all He has done for me through Jesus His Son. What a wonderful assembly of thoughts to ponder.

  6. These were absolutely wonderful & encouraging to me. I don’t tweet, not sure how!

    Liked: 1) In the eye of the storm, God is wrapping you around with His whole self. No one walks through the valley alone. @incourage

    2)Don’t forget to remember, fear tells you who you are not, but faith reminds you who you are! ‏@ChristineCaine

    5)Success isn’t “not failing;” it’s simply trying. @sarahmarkley
    They help remind me that I’m never ever alone in a valley of any kind!

    Loved loved loved 8.When you say: I feel defeated. God says: You are a conqueror! @ReneeSwope

    20.God isn’t disappointed in our failures; He delights in our attempts. @bobgoff
    22.Exhale a little and think about failure being God’s gift of redirection. @TraceePersiko These spoke right into my heart. For the past 6+ months I have felt defeated & disappointed at work!

    13.I can always give thanks because an all-powerful God always has all things – always under control. @AnnVoskamp AMEN AMEN AMEN!!

    Thank you everyone for the great enouragement!

  7. Is there any way that I can send articles from incourage to facebook ? I sure would like to post some of them. Thanks.

    • If you copy the link in your address bar, you can paste it to your wall.
      Enter the link where you would update your status. Usually facebook will then twitch a little and add a ‘picture’ link, like you will often see.
      Usually I backspace my pasted link if the picture one comes up, and add my own comment.
      Hope that made sense
