This is very hard for me. I want to do it all myself. Today's sermon at church dealt with this topic. The pastor said that we are to live relationally with Jesus Christ and with others. Everyone has weakness but with a disability you are very attuned to your limitations, and having to ask for help doing the most basic of a task like cutting meat with a knife. As much as I would love to do it myself, there is a point where I must ask for help. I try to think of all I have achieved, but I am never satisfied. I don't know where I saw this, but it asked this question. If you achieved nothing else in this life, would the gift of your salvation be enough for you? Something to think about, isn't it? I always finds the flaws than the good, and this needs to change, so I can answer the question above. If the gift of my salvation is enough than I will accept all of what He bestows upon me, and the clean slate He offered when He bore my sin as His own.
Have a blessed evening!
Your question would be a hard one for anyone to answer in this day and age. But I'm sure that there are those in poverty, prisons, etc. even now that would say yes, it's enough. Human nature, though, would make it a hard realization to accept.ReplyDelete

Amen to that! I very much struggle with letting go.. It's a cross I bearReplyDelete
a struggle of mine as wellReplyDelete
Sometimes when I struggle with asking for help, I think of how I feel after I help someone else. Knowing I can bless someone by giving them a chance to serve makes it a little easier to ask for help when I need it.ReplyDelete
