why is it so hard for some to ask for help? what gets in the way? pride? embarrassment? fear?
I find it hard to ask for help when I believe it’s something I should be able to handle on my own. areas that should be in my wheelhouse. especially because I know the One who knows all! But the reality is: it is ok to ask for help! we are not equipped to handle everything on our own and there is no shame in admitting this is the case. we are made to be in relationship. and how do you really get to know others? by getting in the trenches with them and allowing them to trench with you!
thank you Lord for providing others in my life that I can turn to and request help, even if it is to petition You on my behalf!
My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth! He will not let you stumble; the one who watches over you will not slumber. (Psalm 121:2-3 NLT)
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2 NIV)
