Please contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.
In the hustle and bustle of life, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, like we’re drowning in a sea of responsibilities and challenges. But fear not, for when the weight of the world becomes too much to bear, we all need a little extra spiritual encouragement to uplift our souls. It’s comforting to know that within the embrace of the church, there lies a sanctuary where fellowship thrives and Bible studies flourish. Within these sacred spaces, kind words serve as a soothing ointment for our weary hearts. They possess an incredible power – pointing us towards Jesus Christ Himself and His timeless teachings found within His word.
And let us not forget about prayer; it is through this divine conversation with our Creator that we find peace and guidance in times of uncertainty or despair. For you see, spirituality is more than just an intangible concept; it’s about nurturing our spirits amidst this chaotic world by seeking connection with something greater than ourselves. So I implore you today – pray fervently, immerse yourself in scripture daily, and above all else – surround yourself with fellow believers who will walk alongside you on this beautiful journey called life. Three best ways to find spiritual encouragement are to pray, read your Bible, and fellowship with other believers. ~ Bill Greguska
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Our Spiritual Lives Are Like Falling Plates!
How To Find Spiritual Encouragement?
Jesus is the bridge that connects you to God! Billy Graham was quoted to have said, “Man has two great spiritual needs. One is for forgiveness. The other is for goodness.” How much do you think you would benefit from some spiritual encouragement? Sometimes in life, we all need encouragement.
The support we get is the spiritual encouragement we get from God through prayer and reading His Word, the Bible, and through others that He put strategically into our lives at the His Word the Bible and through others that He put strategically into our lives at the exact right time.
Keep in mind that the creator of this world loves you and has a plan for your life, not to harm you but to give you hope and a future. I want to ask you two spiritual questions to help you decide how much spiritual encouragement you have in your life today. The first question is, “Do you know and love God with your whole heart, mind, and soul?” And the second question is, “Do you love your neighbor like yourself even if they are not always nice to you?”
Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus?
“Religion” Or “Relationship With Jesus.”
- Religion is a set of man-made rules and regulations to dictate over those following their ways. (an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and practices used to worship a god or a group of gods)
- Relationship with Jesus Christ is a daily personal way of life between our creator God and ourselves based on the truth of God from the Bible, not from a denomination’s interpretation.
Are you a spiritual or religious person? A spiritual person closely relates to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. A religious person follows religious rules, and their religion is based on their works, not the work of Jesus! Find spiritual encouragement from God’s word, fellowship, and prayer!
If we are to go forward, we must go back and rediscover those precious values – that all reality hinges on moral foundations and has spiritual control. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Philippians 2:1-2 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.
Suggested Reading From The Bible!
Of course, the entire Bible is the inspired word of God, yet there needs to be a place to start your reading. Here is my suggestion for you on where to begin your reading.
- 1 John.
- The Gospel of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
- The Psalms and Proverbs.
- The entire Bible is also full of wisdom and truth.
As you learn about Jesus Christ through prayer, Bible reading, and fellowship with other Christians, God will guide you and give you the wisdom and knowledge you need for every challenge in life.

Romans 7:14-17 We know that the law is spiritual, but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do, but what I hate, I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me.
Some Specific Scriptures To Encourage You:
Romans 12:16 ESV
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.
Romans 12:1 ESV
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
Romans 10:1-4 ESV
Brothers, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For, being ignorant of the righteousness of God, and seeking to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
Romans 8:1 ESV
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Romans 1:16-18 ESV
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth.
