My 2 Cents ๐Ÿ’ญ

Learn to ask…

How are we going to receive when we’re afraid to ask? Even if it’s the most menial thing such as asking for help in the kitchen to stir a pot or to retrieve an ingredient from the fridge?

Unfortunately, we live in a society where pride rules supreme, so when we fall on hard times, we tend to lick our wound instead of asking for a bandage to put on it. We tend to complain about things instead of asking. That never makes the situation better. Yes, yes, I know that asking for help especially when we’re in dire situations can make us seem weak, needy, and inferior, but seeking help is not a form of weakness.

Sooner or later, you’re not going to have a choice.

You do not have, because you do not ask.ย 

James 4:2

Sometimes, people don’t always automatically know your needs, so never be afraid to ask for help when you truly need it, even if it’s menial. If you feel like that thing call control is slipping away from your fingers, don’t hesitate to ask for help, for it’s natural to. Not everyone might be willing to help, but that too is okay. The most important thing is that you’ve gathered the courage to ask.

And that’s my two cents.ย

VERSE OF THE MONTH (January 2021):  

For if you remain silent at this time, 
relief and deliverance for the Jews will 
arise from another place, 
but you and your fatherโ€™s family will perish. 
And who knows but that you have come to 
your royal position for such a time as this?โ€ 

Esther 4:14 ๐Ÿ‘‘

  1. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately and was even discussing it with a friend. I think a lot of times we miss out on so much because we’re too afraid to ask. I was like that too but over the last couple of years I’ve learnt to be clear and precise and just ask for what I want. The worst that will happen is they’ll say no but at least you asked.

  2. Very good point on asking for help. This is an area I struggle with because I often think people don’t want to help, but it’s important to ask regardless because maybe God wants someone to help us on something, but we need to take that first step to make that known. Thanks Diana for your insight ๐Ÿ™‚
