10 Ways to Encourage Others Through Your Blog

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

I know many bloggers whose primary goal is to encourage others by sharing Jesus. This is a wonderful aspiration! And we want to get better and better at doing just that. So let’s look at some ways we can accomplish that goal through blogging.

#1. Share a personal experience. Everyone loves a personal story. Nothing is more inspiring than reading about how someone else achieved their goal despite hardship and problems along the way.

#2. Share someone else’s story. You may read about someone’s experiences in a book or article and then share that account in your own blog. Be careful to give credit where credit is due.

#3. Share encouraging Bible verses.

#4. Share your journey. What has God taught you that you might share to build others up?

#5. Tell about Bible characters who were encouragers. Some examples are, Mordecai in the book of Esther, Barnabas in the New Testament, Aaron and Hur encouraged Moses during Israel’s battles in Exodus, and Elizabeth was an encouragement to Jesus’ mother, Mary.

#6. As you study your Bible, look for more examples of godly encouragement.

#7. Relate the results of godly encouragement from the Bible. What were the results of Barnabas’ encouragement? What were the results of Mordecai’s encouragement? Was it important that God put those encouragers in place? What might have happened without their support?

#8. Relate a time when you were desperate for God to help you and He provided strength, encouragement, or comfort.

#9. Encourage your fellow bloggers by liking and commenting on their posts. I have developed blogger friends over the last five years that I sincerely care about and pray for. Nothing is more encouraging to a blogger than reading in their comments these words: “I needed that!” or “Excellent post!”

#10. Last, but not least, PRAY FOR YOUR READERS!

Verses of Encouragement

Philippians 1:6 “…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Psalm 37:23-24 “The LORD makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand.”

Deuteronomy 31:6 “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

1 John 4:4 “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.”

An Example from the Movies: The King’s Speech

The 2010 movie The King’s Speech tells the story of England’s King George VI, who unexpectedly became monarch when his brother abandoned the throne. With the country on the brink of World War II, government officials wanted a well-spoken leader because of the increasingly influential role of radio. King George VI, however, struggled with a stuttering problem.

Throughout his struggle to overcome his speech difficulty, his wife, Elizabeth was his constant source of encouragement. Her steadfast devotion provided the support he needed to overcome his challenge and rule well during the war.*

You can be an encourager like Barnabas! Your encouragement can make a difference in someone’s life! Who encouraged you? How did they make a difference in your life?

With Love, Cindy

  1. A lovely call to service for all Christian bloggers; certainly our purpose is to serve Him in our writing, but also to lift each other up in His name. May God continue to guide and bless you each day Cindy.

  2. I had forgotten about “The King’s Speech.” Marty remembers seeing it, but I don’t think I do. Anyway, we’re going to watch it (again) soon. I found it on Amazon Prime. 🙂 I was hoping it could encourage my 10-year-old granddaughter who struggles a little with her speech, but I see it’s rated R. 😦 Do you know why? Maybe I’ll preview it and note when to “fast forward.” 😉 )

    1. That’s the sweetest thing anyone ever said. I can’t tell you how much it means to me. How I wish we could sit on the porch and have coffee together. We could talk all day! Blessings, Patty! Have a wonderful day!
