Let’s be honest, we all need a little help from time to time.
There are single candles that just won’t go out…they need that little extra breath.
There are cars that won’t start…they need that little jump.
There are children that just won’t stop crying…we need grandma.
There are careers that continue to flounder…we need coaching.
There are hearts that remain broken…we need love, care, and sometimes therapy.
Weakness is not found in the problem, but in failing to ask for help. The struggle is not in the issue itself but our wrong-minded determination to address the problem in isolation.
What do we gain from standing alone when we could stand side-by-side or arm-in-arm?
I’m grateful for the challenges of life and even more thankful for those who come alongside to make the task that much easier.
