We are a proud people.
Believing that we can handle life alone.
We hold things in, hold things back, we hold things away.
We don't want anyone to see, know, or touch.
Maybe because we don't want them to see the truth in us, but I believe mostly because we think its unnecessary.
So instead we trade help for Passive Personal Prayer meetings with God.
We have Councilors to which we seek advice but no comforters cause we dont' listen.
and we live with Pain because we believe we can handle it.
and before you know it, your undone.
It takes courage to seek help, to surrender your hurt, to say (admit) you need help.
Help is unnecessary until you crash. Then its unavoidable.
Matthew 11:28-30 (KJV) Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
To learn from Jesus was must know this. Jesus sought help from His Father, Family and Friends (Church). If it was necessary for Him, how much more is it for us?
Maybe today is the day you find rest before you ruin your life.
