Subject: “Prayers needed”

Bill,

Thank you for your response.   I am struggling terribly right now.  My blood pressure went really high for several days 178/111 so I did call my doctor.  He added a second medication.  I’m trying to eat but have a hard time swallowing now.  I know it is all in my head.   I’m still not sleeping but I’m trying. I got more sleep today than I have in days. 
I am trying to act the same toward my husband.   We eat together and talk. I hug and kiss him like I normally would.  I tell him I love him like normal.  He does not say he loves me like he used to and it kills me.  
He is under a lot of stress.  Yes, I guess I add to it.  I am the kind of person that “vents” about their stressful day at work or about our grown children.  After venting I feel better.  My husband on the other hand keeps everything inside until it gets to a bad boiling point and he resorts to attempting suicide or leaving me.  I know I’m not perfect and I have things to work on but I know deep down all the awful things he said to me aren’t true, although I hear those words in my head constantly.    
I want my marriage to work!!  And I love my husband with all my heart.  I will do anything to save my marriage.  My one friend says to be mean and show him what life is like without me.   I can’t – I love him too much. 
I am not sure how to go on each day.  My stomach is constantly hurting.  I pray many times a day.  I wish I still had a home church but my husband would not attend. 
I’m sorry to babble but it does feel good having a person to talk too. 

Please continue to pray for my husband, myself, and our marriage.  I do love my husband and I want to grow old with him.  
Thank you for “listening”. 
Kelly
Good Morning Kelly,
I am glad that it helps to talk about this, at the same time, I need to let you know that your marriage situation will probably take some time to heal, and it needs some intervention of some sort. It is good to share your thoughts and feeling, but your husband is not getting support from anyone, such as a pastor or counselor, your efforts might take longer than expected.
In the meantime, you take good care of yourself. Go over the list I wrote to you in ways that can be of help to you. Do not lose heart, and if anything, without giving up on your husband, temporarily consider lowering your expectations of him and, at the same time, guard your heart.
Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
I pray that this situation you are in that God uses it for his glory and your good, and that you can not focus so much on your husband, but rather focus on our Lord Jesus and His will for you, also I pray that you can reach out to at least one or even two Christian women friends that can encourage you and point you to the Lord today.
I also pray that you do NOT dwell on your marriage problems ALL day, but rather, set aside an hour or so to pray and talk to someone about these things. (there is a battle going on in your mind and it is from Satan himself trying to kill, steal and destroy you). Put on your armor of Christ to extinguish the fiery arrows that Satan is shooting at you. James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.!
Make today a good day… Walk with the Lord!!!

Subject: Prayers needed
Message Body:
My husband who I’ve been with for 31 years, told me he wants a divorce and does not want to try to work it out.  I had no clue as I thought I was the luckiest gal ever to have such a perfect marriage and husband.  He tried to commit suicide a couple of years ago and I’m afraid he is having a breakdown.  I love him with everything I have.  I want him to stay.  I’m heartbroken.  I’m not sure how I’ll go on.  Please pray for us.
Hi Kelly,
I am so glad you have reached out for help. This must be very hard on you. I am so sorry to hear what is going on in your life with your husband.
I would suggest that you continue to try to stay calm and pray for your husband and also wisdom for you in how to deal with what is going on. Let’s hope and pray that he said what he did out of frustration with his own life. I pray that he comes to his senses through the power of prayer and the Holy Spirit. Keep calm and trust in God!
Is your husband a believer in Jesus Christ? You may want to share with him some scripture if the timing is right, but be careful not to provoke him into anger. He is going through a lot right now, and you are correct in asking for prayer. What can your church do to help you guys? Maybe the pastor could organize some kind of intervention for your husband?
Does your husband see a physiatrist or take medication? It sounds like he is somewhat fragile right now, so you might not want to engage in debate or emotional upheaval with him. Does he have a best friend that you can reach out to help your husband get reeled back in? Keep in mind that guys, in general, do not talk as openly about problems as women do.
Besides prayer and common sense. I would suggest that you take care of your own health (and encourage your husband to do the same without pressuring him). What I mean by taking care of your health, I noticed this email was Sent: 3:51 am, which tells me you are not understandably not sleeping well.
Kelly, here are a few practical suggestions to help you get by this coming week and month…
  1. Keep praying. Keep trusting in God!
  2. Reach out to your Chrisitan friends for fellowship and support.
  3. Also, contact your pastor.
  4. Invite God to be your refuge and strength. Psalm 46:1
  5. Don’t debate with your husband. Vent your feelings with a girlfriend or someone like our ministry, possibly a doctor too.
  6. Try not to take on more during this time, keep your life as simple as possible, be good to yourself.
  7. Make sure you try to keep your life somewhat “normal” as far as possible. Be wise with your schedule.
  8. Eat healthy food. Keep away from sugar and overeating.
  9. Get some exercise, at least go for walks along to pray to God or with a friend to talk about things.
  10. Get 7-8 hours of sleep, avoid caffeine, and be sure you are adequately hydrated with water.
If what I have shared with you has been helpful and you would like to talk more, feel free to email me back. In the meantime, I pray that you take good care of yourself and ask God for wisdom His wisdom like in James 1:5. Also, cast all your anxiety on Jesus because He cares for you more than you realize.
Stay calm and trust in the Lord,
Bill Greguska

I have really bad thoughts and it’s been affecting my life and family so much!! I know I have to have faith in God and I love Him I really dislike these thoughts and I just want to talk to someone.
Hi Paola,
I would like to remind you that you can take this to God in prayer. Have you ever considered that you may need some medical help? Not all things can be blamed on a lack of faith. I would suggest that you contact your doctor in the morning and explain to him what you are experiencing. There is no shame in seeking help for mental illness. But it would be a big shame if you just kept on suffering without doing something about your situation. Here is a link that can be of help to you.
Here is a phone number talk with some in the meantime 800-633-3446 and also a list of phone numbers you can call.
I am sorry, but we do not talk with people on the phone. Our ministry is limited to just via email.
Again, please contact your doctor or call the hospital or clinic in your area to get checked out and get some help! (I am not sure where you live, but you can try to call 211 and they might be able to help you or even 911 if you feel it is an emergency.
I pray that you listen to my advice and get the help you need. If what I have shared with you has been helpful to you, feel free to email me back.
May The Good Lord bless you and keep you safe.

Please help me to be restored

Hi Arnetta,

I can only speak for myself, but there are times that I need to pray over and over, pleading with God to give me His wisdom and strength. Ask God to open your eyes to what is coming between you and your husband. I am glad you prayed, but do not stop now…Keep on praying and reaching out to God for His help. In the meantime, consider what it says in

Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.

I am sure since you are a woman, you are more emotional than your husband, but right now is not the time to be too emotional. Use the wisdom God has given you and take one day at a time while your eyes are on the Lord rather than the pain your husband seems to be dishing out. Pray for your husband and for yourself to be strong in your faith.

1 Peter 4:8 Above all, love each other deeply because love covers over a multitude of sins.

Hi Arnetta,

I am glad you have reached out. Although you did not mention anything specific, it is evident that your marriage is not doing well. Have you prayed about your marriage? If not, ask God to open your eyes to be able to see what you can say or do concerning your husband to get things back the way they ought to be.

I pray for you right now that whatever is coming between the two of you can get resolved and the love of your marriage can be reconciled.

Again thank you Bill I respect your words of wisdom and encouragement. I have been praying for God’s peace and will continue. Thank you for your prayers!
By the Grace of God, 
Eloise

Hi Eloise,
I encourage you to keep praying about this. Maybe you could ask your pastor. I am sorry that my answer was not a resounding YES or NO, but if my common sense tells me that if their spouses are passed away, and they are not blood relatives, I do not see why they could not be married even though it is such a very weird situation.
When I read Leviticus 18:16 below, I assume that it is referring to if the people are all alive which would be adulty in other words.
You are going to have to make a decision about going to the wedding or not? I can not say that they are committing a sin, but I honestly do not know for sure. Again for what it is worth if they are not blood-related and both of their spouses are deceased, I think it might be okay. I am not a pastor or theologian, I am just a Christian who loves the Lord and wants to follow His teaching!
I pray for you and your decision this weekend.
James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
Bill Greguska
Bill – Thank you, that means a lot.

Subject: Re: Do you know what the Bible says about brother-in-law and sister-in-law marrying?
Hi Bill, 
Do you know what the Bible says about brother-in-law and sister-in-law marrying? I’m invited to attend their wedding in a Christian church and it doesn’t sit well with me it’s mind boggling. I have hesitation and confusion about the matter… what does the word of God say about such things. Is this just me? I don’t want to be judgmental.
Hi Eloise,
Your question is very interesting, so I looked into God’s word to help you find an answer to your question. Before you go any further, prepare your heart and pray for them. It might be a situation where they will not listen to your words of wisdom from the Bible. Remember what it says in Romans 12:18 that as far as possible as it depends on you, live a peace with everyone. It sounds to me that they are putting you in a position to choose to follow the teaching of God or to condone what God’s word prohibits. You need to choose who you will serve, God or man? (keep in mind that we are all sinners saved by God’s grace).

As you said, it is mind-boggling. I will not tell you what to do, although if I were in your shoes, I think I would gracefully tell them what you believe from God’s word and decline to attend the service. In the meantime, pray for them and remember what Jesus said to the Pharisees when they were about to stone the women caught in adultery. Jesus said he without sin cast the first stone. But whatever you decide to do, make sure you pray about it, and your decision gives you peace in your conscience. I will encourage you to keep praying about this until you have a clear answer. and also for you to take a look at:
Leviticus 18:6-25

6 “‘No one is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations. I am the Lord.
7 “‘Do not dishonor your father by having sexual relations with your mother. She is your mother; do not have relations with her.
8 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your father’s wife; that would dishonor your father.
9 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your sister, either your father’s daughter or your mother’s daughter, whether she was born in the same home or elsewhere.
10 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter; that would dishonor you.
11 “‘Do not have sexual relations with the daughter of your father’s wife, born to your father; she is your sister.
12 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your father’s sister; she is your father’s close relative.
13 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your mother’s sister, because she is your mother’s close relative.
14 “‘Do not dishonor your father’s brother by approaching his wife to have sexual relations; she is your aunt.
15 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your daughter-in-law. She is your son’s wife; do not have relations with her.
16 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your brother’s wife; that would dishonor your brother.
17 “‘Do not have sexual relations with both a woman and her daughter. Do not have sexual relations with either her son’s daughter or her daughter’s daughter; they are her close relatives. That is wickedness.
18 “‘Do not take your wife’s sister as a rival wife and have sexual relations with her while your wife is living.
19 “‘Do not approach a woman to have sexual relations during the uncleanness of her monthly period.
20 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your neighbor’s wife and defile yourself with her.
21 “‘Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molek, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the Lord.
22 “‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.
23 “‘Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.

24 “‘Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. 25 Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants.

Hi bill, 
Thank you for your reply concerning my question. My brother in law through marriage and sister in law through marriage are both widows. I’ve also searched God’s word and found the same verse in Leviticus. I shared it with my husband and he did speak to his brother but not our sister in law. They continued their relationship and are planning to marry this weekend. 
I still can wrap my head around it…
Thank you 🙏🏻

Hi Ashley,
Divorce is a very painful thing, I know I was divorced myself. This is a very good question. Are you asking for yourself or for someone else? Have you or (your friend) prayed and asked God what God wants to happen? Do not make decisions based on what you think or feel, always ask God, and sometimes others who can give you wise counsel.
It has been 13 years since my divorce, I dated a few women, but the way I see it for me, unfortunately, is that “Once bit, twice shy”
I felt that God wanted me to have friends that are female, but I do not feel lead to getting married unless it was totally obvious we were made for one another. You or your friend might want to experience long term dating instead of jumping right back into the frying pan sort of speak. I would suggest at the very least 2-3 years so that healing can happen and also that you do not make the same mistake as before. Time can be your best ally. If the guy truly loves you or (your friend).
Just the fact that you are asking this question means you want to please God. That is totally awesome, keep it up! Below is some valuable information about divorce and remarriage. You can click on the video and or read the text. The video reads out the text.

What does the Bible say about divorce and remarriage?


dot blogvideodivorce and remarriageaudio
>>Please Click Here to watch this video which will help clarify your question<<
Question: “What does the Bible say about divorce and remarriage?”

Answer: First of all, no matter what view one takes on the issue of divorce, it is important to remember Malachi 2:16: “I hate divorce, says the LORD God of Israel.” According to the Bible, marriage is a lifetime commitment. “So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate” (Matthew 19:6). God realizes, though, that, since marriages involve two sinful human beings, divorces are going to occur. In the Old Testament, He laid down some laws in order to protect the rights of divorcées, especially women (Deuteronomy 24:1–4). Jesus pointed out that these laws were given because of the hardness of people’s hearts, not because such laws were God’s desire (Matthew 19:8).


The controversy over whether divorce and remarriage is allowed according to the Bible revolves primarily around Jesus’ words in Matthew 5:32 and 19:9. The phrase “except for marital unfaithfulness” is the only thing in Scripture that possibly gives God’s permission for divorce and remarriage. Many interpreters understand this “exception clause” as referring to “marital unfaithfulness” during the “betrothal” period. In Jewish custom, a man and a woman were considered married even while they were still engaged or “betrothed.” According to this view, immorality during this “betrothal” period would then be the only valid reason for a divorce.

However, the Greek word translated “marital unfaithfulness” is a word which can mean any form of sexual immorality. It can mean fornication, prostitution, adultery, etc. Jesus is possibly saying that divorce is permissible if sexual immorality is committed. Sexual relations are an integral part of the marital bond: “the two will become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:5; Ephesians 5:31). Therefore, any breaking of that bond by sexual relations outside of marriage might be a permissible reason for divorce. If so, Jesus also has remarriage in mind in this passage. The phrase “and marries another” (Matthew 19:9) indicates that divorce and remarriage are allowed in an instance of the exception clause, whatever it is interpreted to be. It is important to note that only the innocent party is allowed to remarry. Although not stated in the text, it would seem the allowance for remarriage after divorce is God’s mercy for the one who was sinned against, not for the one who committed the sexual immorality. There may be instances where the “guilty party” is allowed to remarry, but they are not evident in this text.

Some understand 1 Corinthians 7:15 as another “exception,” allowing remarriage if an unbelieving spouse divorces a believer. However, the context does not mention remarriage but only says a believer is not bound to continue a marriage if an unbelieving spouse wants to leave. Others claim that abuse (spousal or child) is a valid reason for divorce even though it is not listed as such in the Bible. While this may very well be the case, it is never wise to presume upon the Word of God.

Sometimes lost in the debate over the exception clause is the fact that, whatever “marital unfaithfulness” means, it is an allowance for divorce, not a requirement for it. Even when adultery is committed, a couple can, through God’s grace, learn to forgive and begin rebuilding their marriage. God has forgiven us of so much more. Surely we can follow His example and even forgive the sin of adultery (Ephesians 4:32). However, in many instances a spouse is unrepentant and continues in sexual immorality. That is where Matthew 19:9 can possibly be applied. Many also look to quickly remarry after a divorce when God might desire them to remain single. God sometimes calls people to be single so that their attention is not divided (1 Corinthians 7:32–35). Remarriage after a divorce may be an option in some circumstances, but that does not mean it is the only option.

The Bible makes it abundantly clear that God hates divorce (Malachi 2:16) and that reconciliation and forgiveness should mark a believer’s life (Luke 11:4; Ephesians 4:32). However, God recognizes that divorce will occur, even among His children. A divorced and/or remarried believer should not feel any less loved by God, even if the divorce and/or remarriage is not covered under the possible exception clause of Matthew 19:9.

Hi Rongai,
Have you prayed about your situation? Often we try to solve all our problems in our own strength. It is not bad that you want to find a solution, but it is important to go to God who is the creator of this universe first before we take things into our own hands.

Good morning Makian,
I am glad you reached out for some encouragement. My first thought is to ask you if you have prayed to God to ask Him for His help?
After you pray about your situation, you would greatly benefit from making an itemized list of the potential things that are distracting you or actually hindering you from your goal of working harder and studying better. Hebrews 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
What do you think is holding you back from doing your best? https://needencouragement.com/distractions/
Do you have a close friend or pastor that can help keep you accountable? I could put you on our mailing list, we usually send out one or two encouraging emails per week that can also be of help to you!
I pray that as you approach God that He will give you the wisdom that you are looking for. James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

Re: NeedEncouragement.com “Stress from Work”
Hi Justine,
I am very glad that you have reached out to us, my first thought was to ask you if you have prayed about your situation? If not, that is the place to begin!
With work, there is usually always some stress involved. You need to determine whether you are doing the appropriate things to minimize unnecessary stress and resolve problems at your workplace.
  1. Have you prayed about your situation?
  2. Have you reported your problem to your supervisor?
  3. Have you determined how much you enjoy your job compared to how much stress you are experiencing? (pros and cons)
  4. Have you brainstormed ideas on how to reduce stress at work?
  5. Have you tried things to make things better at work with no success?
  6. Have you thought that your job might not be the right place of employment for you?
  7. If you have done all you can do to relieve the stress and problems at work, it might be wise to look elsewhere for your employment? You will know after you pray about it and ask God what you ought to do? You need first to try to resolve your problems, yet if that does not work, finding new work might be a good option?
I hope what I have shared has been helpful to you if it has, and you have more questions, feel free to email us back. (I am sorry but we only use email not phone to be of help to others.
Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,
I will be praying for you, and I hope you also pray for yourself as well.

Message Body:
I am a Christian and is praying that God will deliver me it makes me depressed I need encouragement to get me through
Hi Elizabeth,

Well, I am glad to hear two things that you shared with me. One is that you are a Christian, and two is that you are praying. I am sure you realize that just because we are Christian, that does not automatically give us a free pass from all pain, suffering, anxiety, or problems in this world.


Ephesians 6:12-14 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place.

My suggestion to you sister Elisabeth is to keep your eyes on Jesus, not the waves, keep praying, and get into your Bible and realize your strength comes from the Lord! Find someone in your church to help you, maybe your pastor or other Christian friends can be of help to you? Keep your health strong by eating properly, getting enough exercise, enough sleep, and guard your heart.
Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
If what I have shared with you has been of some help to you, feel free to email me back if you have anything else we can help you with?
My God bless you and deliver you from your anxieties and depression.
Elisabeth, keep the faith! It is always darkest before the dawn! Pray
