It’s Day 17 of the 21-Day Mental and Spiritual Health series!
There is much that we can do to support our mental and spiritual health on our own, but it can be helpful to also find and fellowship with others who can encourage us.
Supportive fellowship can be a very strong element in fostering and maintaining mental and spiritual health. However, it is vital that we seek encouragement from the right people. If we surround ourselves with people who are mentally and spiritually compromised (to a significant degree), we will be putting ourselves at risk.
When we know and interact with people who are strong in their faith and who actively try to live according to biblical principles, our own faith and lifestyle will be positively impacted. Sometimes it is even enough to know that you are not the only one on this kind of journey.
Scriptures for Today’s Post
1 Thessalonians 5:11 (ESV)- Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
Proverbs 27:17 (ESV)- Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.
1 Peter 3:8 (ESV)- Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.
Thank you for your grace and your mercy. You are worthy of all honor and all praise. Lord, I pray that you will place godly people in my path that will help me grow, and I pray for wisdom to identify those individuals. You are always for me, Lord, and I will trust in you and in your promise that you will care for me.
In Jesus’ mighty name I pray,
