It started with one bad decision that we didn’t pray about and ask God for guidance. Then there was a second bad decision with no guidance. A third decision and a fourth decision, until finally, one day, we’re cruising along and we find ourselves wrapped around a tree. We can’t undo the decisions we’ve made. We can’t reverse time and remake those decisions. What’s done is done and we have to move on from it.
Help. I need help. Help Me. One word that, no matter how it has been phrased or what tone is used, means the same thing and it is completely loaded. It never ceases to amaze me at how difficult it is for us as human beings to ask for help. We live in a society today that negates God. Our society revolves around us and money. We live in a society where we’re taught that working by oneself is the best thing; that teamwork is a thing of the past. We’re taught that asking for help is one of the worst things we can do; we’ll be considered a failure. Asking for help shows our vulnerability. So to reach out, to have the need to say “Help Me,” nearly kills us, and one day, our neglect to do so, really will kill us.
