Spring Cleaning – Needing help

What’s the easiest thing for you to do everyday? Do you ever ask for help doing it?

What’s the hardest thing for you to do everyday? Do you ever ask for help doing THAT?

Why not?

What keeps us from asking for help with the easy stuff?

It sort of seems foolish to ask for help doing something that we’ve managed to maintain on our own, effortlessly right?

So then, what about the hard stuff? Why don’t we ask for help with those things? Is it that we’re afraid we’ll be seen as incapable of managing our affairs? Could it be that we’re afraid of the label that might be placed on us?

Oh, I know, maybe if we ask for help, we just might get it but it might mean we actually have to let go of that thing so someone else can be in control of something in our own lives?

Whatever it is that keeps us from asking for help, at the root of that issue is the bigger issue: Do we really want it.

What is it that you want?

In every part of your life (spirit, soul and body); what do you want?

Have you asked for help?

When you asked, did you wait to receive it?

On a scale of 1 – 10 (10 being the greatest desire) what was/is your willingness to receive it?

What’s stopping you from asking/receiving?

I need your help.

I want to help you throw off the weight you’ve been carrying.

I need your help.

I want to help you get rid of the guilt and receive the grace.

I need your help.

I want to help you exchange those lies for the truth of God’s promises.

I need your help.

I want to help you.

I need your help.

How can I help you.

Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. – Matthew 7:7

  1. Love 🙂 Coming boldly and asking for help is so liberating. When I need help and just don’t know how to deal with a problem, I listen to the song “I surrender” by Hillsong. I hand over my problems and surrender to Him for help. Thanks for this post 🙂 It’s beautiful!

    • Edith! AMEN! I love that song! Well. I love any of Hillsong’s music! Handing over our problems to Him is such a liberating thing! Thanks for being here and allowing us to pour into your life!
