All In One Word
With a push of the button, my computer comes to life. Now, I read the topic for my next writing assignment. “You got to be kidding me. How do I explain such a broad topic (help)?”
I pick up the dictionary, only to find that “help” means many things to many people. That refraining from something is a form of helping or relieving someone in his or her need. “Now that really helps me. Maybe, I will just try to write a few words.”
Click, click, and click…delete, delete and delete, click, click, click…delete, delete and delete - I am still confused.
Again that nagging feeling, “Look at that word (help)!” Taking off my glasses, I give my head a shake. “What do you mean look at that word? Now I’m hearing voices. Maybe a break from the keyboard will help me think clearly?”
After several cups of tea, a visit to the bathroom, and a walk around the block, I return to the keyboard. Click, click, click…delete, delete and delete, I am still at a lost for words. There it is again that nagging feeling, “Look at that word!”
“What are you trying to tell me, Lord?”
“Each letter has a meaning.”
“Ok, Lord, now I need your help!”
“The letter “H” is humility. Only when you ask for my help, do you understand your writing weakness.”
“Ok, Lord, What does “E” represent?”
“E” is for effort. I take the time to respond to your cry for help and you take the time to listen.”
“Now, I get it, Lord”
“L” is love. I demonstrate my love for you during your greatest need. When you truly love someone or something, you effortless care for their needs. After all, the Holy Spirit is my gift to you.”
“P” is for perseverance. I never give up on you. Therefore, never give up on your writing assignments. People need to know that I care and will help.”
With this writing assignment complete, I turn off my computer. Now, I understand that “God is my refuge and strength, always ready to help me in my times of trouble. (Psalm 46: 1 NLT)
