A Disability Does Not Have To End Dreams!Do not let a disability to stop you from what you want or need. NeedEncouragement.com

Please contact us if you have any questions, comments, or encouragement.

I like what Scott Hamilton once said, “The only disability in life is a bad attitude.” God has allowed disability, illness, disease, and all crises that people go through for reasons that we do not get to understand sometimes on this side of heaven. Do all you can do, and then trust that is enough.

Comparing yourself with others can be one of the worst things to do. Just do your best! God provides in special ways to those with disabilities. Several years ago, as a caregiver, I had a client with cerebral palsy, Ben Hersh, who had a wonderful attitude. Even though he could not walk, talk, or feed himself, Ben got a lot of love and support from his family and caregivers. Ben was not only my client but a friend and inspiration to me.  He delivered newspapers to St. Luke’s hospital, made greeting cards for the Jewish Community, and had a charming personality and a big heart. ~ Bill Greguska

Hebrews 12:13 “Make level paths for your feet” so that the lame may not be disabled but rather healed.






Disability Or Not? ABILITY Is In The Work DISABILITY!



With God, All Things Are Possible!

Nate does not let being in a wheelchair stop him from playing some extremely good basketball! Dispite his disability. NeedEncouragement.com

#11 Nate Rymsza does not, by any means, let being in a wheelchair stop him at all from playing some excellent basketball and living a good life! 

Are you struggling with how to overcome a disability of your own presently?

God is able!!! Life sometimes can get incredibly frustrating, with physical or emotional challenges to overcome daily! I just wanted to tell you about my friend Nate. Between his faith in God, self-determination, and help from family and friends, Nate Rymsza gets the job done. Nate struggles like any of us in life, but I would not put Nates’ name and the word disabled in the same sentence. Sure, Nate cannot do a few things, but generally speaking, bottom line, nothing really stops him.

Nate is very independent and self-sufficient. He does not let his disability stop him from living a healthy life. He works at a store on a cash register and other assignments and enjoys his life by playing wheelchair basketball, hockey, and baseball. God has blessed Nate with powerful upper body strength, which significantly helps him. Nate and I occasionally shoot hoops in my backyard, and Nate has a great shot! Nate is a big Brewers, Bucks, and Packers fan.

Do you seem that you are just getting by day after day? Do you want more out of your life and believe there is no reason not to do so? Many people have disabilities. Do not let the disability define you, and do whatever you can without comparing yourself to what others can do.



Turning A Disability Into An Ability!

If you happen to have a disability, don’t consider yourself disabled. Look at things like God-Is-Abled!

Disability Is Not The Same As Inability! God loved you and made you the way that you are. He has allowed your disability for a reason. Your job is to continue doing your very best with what you have! God is not ignoring your disability and using it in ways you might not even realize! Don’t be discouraged or doubt the Lord Jesus; have patience in your daily affliction. Many people have overcome a disability to compete in competitive sports with all their hearts and be successful! Doing whatever you can and doing it the best you can is a great place to learn to overcome all disabilities. ~ Bill Greguska
