Encouragement For Everyone!
Where to Start?
Start by changing the way you think about things. Yes, life can be difficult for all of us. But the best thing to do is to focus on the solutions and stop being stuck in the problems. First, put together as many facts as you can (things that are really true) about your current situation. Then brainstorm some possible better ways to manage things. Analyze these possibilities carefully to decide which of them are “Smart” goals.
What to Do Next?
Reach out to a friend, pastor, counselor or someone you know who can give you some good insights, advice, and encouragement. On paper, make a list of issues affecting your life to get a clear picture of what is going on.
Then with the help of prayer, ask God in your own words to show you what you need to do to get you from where you are now, to where you hope to be soon. God knows we all need help and encouragement. All you need to do is to go to God. Ask Him for the understanding and wisdom to know what to do and what not to do to make your situation better.

Encouragement from Bill Greguska
My name is Bill Greguska, I just want to clarify that I’m not a pastor or anyone extra special. I’m an ordinary person just like you that has gone through my share of hard times. I too have my own issues that I deal with in which I need encouragement from time to time. What I can say for sure is that God has helped me through many difficult circumstances in my life. Take your focus off the problem. When you focus on the problem or obstacle, the problem increases. When we focus on God, He points us to the solution.
The best advice? Let your faith lift you up when life knocks you down. Having trust in God helps you to laugh instead of cry. Your trust and confidence in Him (instead of your own ability) will help you find lasting peace. When you give up trying to live on your own (trust God), when you practice forgiving other, when you speak positive words of truth to both yourself and others, and when you love one another the way God has instructed you to do, you will experience peace.
I think that it would be safe to say that if God is willing to help me, then I am sure He is more than willing to do the same or more for you, no matter what your situation, as long as you let Him know you need help and encouragement. I have personally experienced God’s encouragement many times throughout my life. Because all God has done in my life, having faith in Him is a very normal and a natural thing for me. Make today the day that you will begin to look at life through new a new set of eyes. If there is problem or sin that is bothering your conscience, then it’s best to try to attempt to make things right. God has a plan for you. Your job is to find out what that plan is, and to follow it the best you possibly can.
