For years I’ve worked towards tasks or goals and experienced success and failure. I haven’t kept a tally but what I’ve learned is with respect to smaller tasks it’s much easier for me to accomplish those alone. Now things are a bit different. It’s not about a goal or a task per se. It’s about something bigger, my purpose. My reason for existence and I’m in no position to fulfill my purpose without assistance.

It’s a sobering thought for several reasons. First, when my day comes, I’m not willing to stand before Him and explain my failure. Sure He would understand but that’s a conversation I don’t want to have. Second, ego stands in my way. I don’t want to ask for help. I’d like to be able to get things done through working harder and smarter but it doesn’t seem as if that’s an option this time. Next, asking for help brings about a bit of humility. I must admit I can’t get this done without the help of others. Lastly, I’m tired of needing the help of others, especially financially.

I’m uncertain why my purpose requires help from others but it does and I will do what needs to be done.

Today, Thursday, February 27, 2020, I am grateful that:

I’m able to see things from a different perspective. The same way I need help there are those willing to help. They may be asking, “how do I find others to assist?” Again, I can’t put the puzzle together without all of the pieces.

I’m aware of my ego and its presence bringing unwanted delay. I can’t let “ego” or “pride” stand in His way. That’s a surefire way to commit spiritual suicide.

I’m still willing to do “whatever it takes.” My pride and ego are obstacles, delaying the inevitable. He has given me a task and I will complete said task.

Do you delay asking for help too?

Do you understand the difference between humility and humiliation?

Can you see how you asking for help may actually help someone else?

If you feel this will help you or someone you know, please share to your timeline.
