When In Need…Try Phone Helplines!
Being able to utilize phone helplines is wonderful. But the first best thing to do is to pray to God about any situation that you may be going through at this time.
The second best ways to get problems resolved is to talk them out with someone who cares and knows some information on the topic of what you need.
The person to go to could be a best friend, parent, pastor, someone from church, or a Christian counselor. If none of these seem to be working out as well as you hoped, then try one or more of the phone helplines below if you need help in any one of these areas?
Here are some helpful links:
- Common things people think are in the Bible that are not actually in the Bible?
- God helps those who help themselves – is it in the Bible?
- Some encouraging Bible verses?
- What does the Bible say about feeling overwhelmed?
- Why can’t I stop sinning? Please help!
