“Helplessness slowly transformed into a hopelessness that eventually infiltrated into not only my waking but also my sleeping hours. The worst part of this wasted existence was knowing I needed to transform myself and my life; sensing I could do nothing to begin the needed change process; and then developing a growing perspective that I would always be out of control.”
– excerpt from John’s Story

Sometimes we just need help when the bills stack up, when someone we depend on lets us down, when the schedule gets too hectic. Whatever the situation is, God promises to respond when we call on His help. I’ve called on his help so many times when I needed to respond to needs that prevented me from taking care of everything. None of us were meant to handle everything on our own. There’s no shame in asking for help when we need it, but there may be a question of pride if we don’t. It’s just cool that He loves us enough to meet us where we are when we cry out to Him.
