Bursting with Blessings

How To Ask For Help: Devotional 1 Peter 5:10-11

There are two choices in the hard circumstances of life: to complain, whine, and frantically look for a way out, or to pray, seek Him, surround yourself with support while walking the journey out.

I often hear American women explain how they can't take help from others. They explain how they don't ask for help but are willing to help others.

I used to not ask for help and then feel resentful with a broken martyr attitude that served no one and continued to keep me stuck and missing out on the blessings of linking arms with my sisters and brothers in Christ.

We are instructed to help bear one another's burdens (Galatians 6:2).

We are blessed to be a blessing. But, we'll miss out on allowing those blessings if we play the victim and don't reach out for help in a healthy way.

We need to delegate. We can't be it all and do it all. God never called us to that.

Let's choose today to start being a blessing to others and to start shifting our thinking about asking for help.

Let's be the body of Christ--working together, encouraging together, praying together, doing life together.

Let's pray: Dear Lord Jesus thank You for this day. Thank You for Your love and mercy.

Lord we thank You that You never intended for us to do life alone. We thank You for the people You are bringing into our lives that we can bless and that can be a blessing to us.

Please align our thoughts and attitudes with Your will and way.

Help us to whine less and walk by faith more. Help us to pray more and complain less.

We submit ourselves for Your transformation and change---please do a mighty work in us Holy Spirit, we give You all the glory!

Thank You Lord Jesus, Amen!
