Self Encouragement Begins By Putting God First!

Encourage yourself by sticking close to God!

 

Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.

In life, we all need self-encouragement. That little encouragement when things are not going our way, and we seem to be faltering.  God builds into us the ability to encourage ourselves when our encouragement level gets a little low Others can not always encourage us, but always keep in mind that the most important place we can go is to God with our concerns in prayer because He cares for us and loves us! Many times giving yourself a pep talk through self-encouragement based on God’s promises is precisely what we need.

It is essential to try to talk positively with others and have positive thoughts in your mind. But the problem comes in when we think we can do it all on our own without the help of God! Also, something to consider is that if you have any unconfessed sin in your life, confess it to God before you do anything else. 1 John 1:9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. There are four different voices that we hear on a given day, the first voice is that of others speaking to us, the second voice we hear is our own thoughts, the third voice we hear unfortunately comes from Satan, the fourth voice, fortunately, comes from God which is the most important voice of them all. He is the one who can give you the self-encouragement that you need.  ~ Bill Greguska

 

 

 

 

Self Encouragement Starts With God!


 

 

Ways Self Encouragement Can Help You!

  1. Find satisfaction in who you are because of who God made you, whether because of a small accomplishment or just the little things you do or say in your daily life. You need to not only believe in God, but you also need to believe in yourself.
  2. If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then make it your goal today to get to know Jesus. If you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, keep on that path and grow closer to Him every moment of your life.
  3. Second, only to God, consider yourself your own best friend. Think about the things you would say to a good friend when they are down and needs encouragement. Say those things to yourself.  Often friends can leave us for whatever reason, but you will always have yourself to be with the rest of your life.
  4. If you don’t like yourself, your life will be an uphill battle. Sometimes we need to be our own best friend.”

Self Confidence Takes Some Trust And Effort!

I can not control others!

I can control my temper and the way I treat others in my life.

I have learned in my life that when I am confident and comfortable, things go so much better for me.

When I find my confidence in knowing and following the Holy Spirit’s promptings in my life, that is when I am on top of my game.

I find comfort in understanding that God is in control and I am not.

If you want to discover some self-encouragement in your life, start by praying for it, then get into your Bible (if you are new to reading the Bible, I would suggest starting in 1 John 1-5).

You will need to seek after the wisdom found in the Bible. Also, h, having a church and Bible study to participate in with other believers to encourage you is very important. ~ Bill Greguska

 

Ephesians 4:22-24  You were taught, concerning your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds;  and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
