I need help!

Wise people ask for help.

— Myrnaly Sepulveda.

I am always looking for ideas to decorate the house, new recipes and things about writing or crafts. All tutorials I watch or read gives the impression to be very easy and accessible. I like to try new things but sometimes they don’t turn out as I expected.

I have always said that at school I was not taught enough about cutting with scissors. I can do different crafts but at the time of cutting, my skills are not the most skilled. Still, I try.

Well, I will tell you that I was watching some new tutorials and yesterday I started my first task, cutting a piece of cardboard. Cutting the first piece, I also cut my finger.

I could not believe it! In the first cut! – “This is not for me” – I thought – “the craftsmanship has arrived here”.

I told my husband as soon as he got home from work what had happened to me and that my new project ended right there. He looked at me with a smile on his face and hugged me. He told me to remember that this was not my area of expertise, but that it did not mean that I should give up to what I wanted to achieve.

He told me that it is okay to ask for help when needed and that this next Saturday, we had no commitments scheduled and he would help me with the parts that involved cutting things with the scissors.

Frequently, we want to be totally self-sufficient and forget that it is wise to ask for help when we need it. This world teaches us that we seem weak when depend on others and we take that into our spiritual life.

God is our help. He knows us so well that he knows that we are filled with anguish and anxiety when we see ourselves helpless in life situations.

Jesus invites us “Come to me all who are worked and loaded, and I will give you rest” in Matthew 11:28.

It is a blessing to face the circumstances of life with the help of God and our family in faith. We need someone to listen, someone to encourage us and we need to feel loved when we are overwhelmed. It is wise to have a support group of Christian friends or our leaders.

It is of great joy to know that God does not leave us alone. We have someone to hold us. We have help available.

Let’s pray to the Lord presenting our burdens, doubts and concerns knowing that in Him we will find rest and strength for our circumstances. Let us live and experience the joy that He gives us when we find help and support in the family of faith.

** Remember that it is wise to ask for help.
