Helping One Another Can Be A Real Blessing!
Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.
When you decide in your heart and mind to help others the same way you would like others to help you, then you are on the right track! We can help one another with our cheerful words, deeds, prayers, and the love and respect we share with others. Helping one another is one of the best gifts you can give others and yourself. In the Bible, God tells us to love one another, encourage one another, and help one another, so it seems that God makes it clear that we need to watch over and care about other people besides ourselves.
I encourage you to think about what talents, skills, or abilities you have that you could share with others, then I encourage you to pray to God and ask Him what He wants you to do to help benefit someone else. Then I encourage you to get busy and do the will of God, and you will be both a blessing to others and you will be blessed at the same time. ~ Bill Greguska

Help One Another
(This is a section from The Book I wrote)
Lord, it is great to be involved in other people’s lives, to understand what matters to them and what their priorities are. Being a parent is a great way for me to be a mentor to my children Sherry and Chris. I was honored to take care of my elderly mother for the last eight years of her life, so she wouldn’t have to go into a nursing home, which was something she dreaded. I was both a mentor and friend to Ben (who had Cerebral Palsy) and cared for other people in my life. Lord, do you know of others I can help? Please show me so I can start working on it.
Lord, we can each help other people in many ways – pray for them, do acts of kindness, spend time with them, or remember them on special days like their birthdays or Christmas. We can contact them for no reason, which can be a real blessing.
Lord, I pray that each of us will be more considerate and not hesitate so much about helping others, but will love and reach out to each other more freely. Help us consider it an honor and privilege to be able to help someone, no matter what their circumstances may be. Teach us to love more like you love, Lord.
It is one of the beautiful compensations in this life that no one can sincerely try to help another without helping himself. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson, popular American lecturer, philosopher, and poet.
