Too often I think, “I’ve got this. I don’t need help in that area.” I’ll be open: sometimes I feel needy when I ask for help from God. Sometimes I think this is too trivial to ask Him for help. My pastor, who often uses the analogy of a father/child relationship, usually reminds me to realize that God wants to help us. Many times each day in many ways, we are the widow.
1 Timothy 5:5
The widow who is really in need and left all alone puts her hope in God and continues night and day to pray and to ask God for help.
As a presenter, one of our big challenges can be technology. When we are giving a presentation, we may be using the same computer, but we are connecting to a different system in a different setting. There can always be challenges, so why not ask for God’s help?
We have live-streamed our last two LIVE Master Workshops. Both times we had challenges with something as simple as connecting to the internet even though we had a hardwired connection! Yikes! Both times when I started to freak out, I stopped and prayed over my computer. I asked God for help, not just for me, but for the people we were trying to serve. Both times the problem was solved in different ways and in different time frames. It was kind of crazy. Both episodes made it into my Answered Prayers notebook. Just sayin’.
I think of my nephews. When one of them asks me for help, I get excited to help him. I wish they would ask more often. I guess I pass on this reminder to you as I remind myself: “Ask.”
Thank you, God, for Grace, Truth, Love, and Laughter,
