Ask, And It Shall Be Given...

I've had a huge weight bearing down on me for weeks. I've been full of fear and dread over what might occur. I've had too many balls in the air at one time and I knew that they would all come crashing down unless I could let go, gracefully, of at least one; but, I had to ask for support from a trusted friend. I did. I received it! Why is this so hard for me to remember? Why do I forever think I need to handle it all alone? Do I suffer from amnesia? No. I'm just a slow learner (and God loves me anyway!)...the relief I sought had been there all along!

"And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you."--Luke 11:9

Life is Good
...Oh, yes it is!

Oh, dear. I'm glad you are okay again.

and I, as well, suffer from the "I can do it myself" stance . . . .

It's always hardest to ask for help. I'm among the "I can do it" crowd myself!

Angels can work small mircles, If we let them!

I suffer from "I must do this on my own- itis" too.

Think about how willing we are to help others, & then try to realise, others are often the same!
It is hard to remember sometimes!
