Moms, Aunties, Caregivers: Remember how it was letting your little one get dressed all on their own? You are running behind but you need to let the little one learn how to get dressed by themselves. And they can be quite persistent, right? They may have a tantrum or cry, but they are determined to do it all on their own. And you are standing there, patiently waiting (or impatiently waiting…), thinking to yourself, if only they would ask me for help, I could help them out.
Can’t help but to wonder if the Father is standing there looking at us, as we cry, tantrum, and throw a whole fit, trying to figure out our problem. We can’t help but to wonder if the Father looks at us saying: If only they asked for help, I could help them.
That pesky spirit of control can be such a hindrance to our heart’s desires. If we would bow to the Father and lay down our challenges, our struggles, and weaknesses, imagine what the Lord our God could do for us! Imagine if we simply surrendered and asked the Lord for help, what could be accomplished.
There is power in asking the Father for help. He is that patient parent, just waiting for us to surrender. He is that loving Savior who wants to see us abundantly blessed. He longs to be Lord over every inch of our lives. The Father is not here to see us struggle, when He holds the world in His hands. The Creator of the Universe is not in place to see His children forsaken.
Ask the Holy Spirit for guidance. Ask the Lord to help you finish that book. Ask the Lord to release healing onto that hurting loved one. Ask the Father to increase your finances. Seek the Savior for that new job.
Peace and Blessings
