Today's prompt is HANDS.
Can I give you a hand?
How can I help?
What do you need me to do?
Let me help you with that?
How many times do we hear those words and then push the person who is saying them away with a polite "No thanks, I've got it handled"?
When we are actually drowning and completely overwhelmed by our lives and our circumstances. Why do we do this??
We are always sincere when we offer our help to someone else. Why do we think that their offer to us is less sincere??
Or is it just that we don't want to admit that we need help? We are woman, hear us roar!!! We don't need no stinkin' help!! We are fine, Just fine!!
Until we are not...Until finally we feel ourselves being pulled under for the last time and we are not sure we can swim our way back to the surface. Only then does our arrogance vanish and we humbly must admit that we cannot do it on our own. We are not Wonder Woman we are just a small creature of God's. We must accept his help and we must recognize when he sends that help our way.
When we reject others offers of help, we are, in effect, rejecting God.
