It is hard to ask for help.
It’s difficult to admit our brokenness.
It’s hard to accept help,
We live in an individualistic society,
We think we can make it on our own.
But actually we can’t manage alone.
Yes, it is hard to open ourselves up
There’s the potential of rejection
There’s the possibility of ridicule.
And still it’s hard to accept the help
even when help is gladly, openly, freely given.
It is humbling.
Our pride is dented.
The façade we have so carefully constructed is cracked,
Then what about our reputation of independence
Is it shattered irreparably?
It needs to be
Being helpless is a beautiful thing.
God designed us to be helpless.
Being helpless is part of growing.
Being helpless is the doorway to salvation
Is the golden key to prayer
Crying for help is a simplistic prayer
Why not be simple
The LORD preserves the simple:
I was brought low,
and he helped me.
The sorrows of death surrounded us,
The pain of hell held us tight:
We found nothing but trouble & sorrow.
Then we called
We called on the name of the LORD;
O LORD, we beg You,
deliver our soul.
You are full of grace LORD,
You are righteous; yea,
You are merciful.
O my soul; for our LORD deals bountifully with us.
You deliver our soul from death,
You deliver our eyes from tears,
You deliver our feet from falling.
We will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
The Lord is our helper
Surround us with those who support our soul
Hear us, O LORD & have mercy on us!
O LORD, be our helper.
Lord! You have promised!
That the arms of the wicked will be broken,
So yes! Break their arms.
but You LORD uphold & protect us
who want what’s right & good
Lord! You promised!
That even when we stumble & fall,
We will not be overwhelmed,
for You LORD are holding our hand.
Lord! You help & deliver us;
You rescue & save us from the wicked liars,
because we take refuge in You.
We find our help in You
The LORD is with us; He is our helper.
Therefore we will look in triumph
At those who hate us.
Our Lord keeps saying!
Do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be afraid, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you;
I will surely help you;
I will hold on to you
with My right hand of righteousness.
God will give us strength.
God will help us.
God will hold us & give us stability
We love His firm grip
We love His tender voice
