    Remember that you're not alone. The last thing you want to do is fall into the misconception that you are the only Christian on Earth.

    Read the Bible. Why? It will build your faith! Jesus knows that your walk as Christian will not be easy, but He has let us know that He is with us. Matthew 5:11-12 says: "'Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.'"

    Pray for strength. Prayer, your hot line to God, is the best way to stay intimate with your Creator. The better you know God, the more proud you will be that you are among His follower. Group prayer is helpful as well. Once again, building a community of faith is invaluable in building your confidence in your religion.


  • It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to become part of your church community. Friends in the church will guide, support, and encourage you in your journey when it becomes difficult.
  • Remember, God is always with you, and would never put you in an impossible situation! 1 Corinthians 10:13 says: "No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it."
