Asking for Help

We all need a little help sometimes, so why is it so difficult to ask?

Watch the video below for more.

Our Virtual Chaplain says…

We all need a bit of help from time to time. None of us has got it all worked out. God didn’t create us to exist in glorious isolation but created us to be in community: to laugh together, cry together and to support and help each other when he need that little bit of help.

However, there are times in life when there is only one person who can help and that person is God.  In the Bible it says:

“I lift up my eyes to the mountains—

where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord,

the Maker of heaven and earth.”

(Psalm 121 vs 1-2)

So next time when you really don’t know which way to turn, why not ask God to help? You might just be surprised at what happens.
