A few days ago, I was chatting with my boss at work while he was having physio on a painful spot on his leg. He had one hand raised over his head while the physiotherapist was applying deep pressure, as if he wanted someone to tap him out. At that time, I didn’t think about it too much beyond the photo I took (with permission).
Over the past few days, I have been reading the Well Spring novels by James L.Rubart, Soul’s Gate & Memory’s Door. Both of which God is using to shake up & sift out some incorrect ways i think. Stretching my faith to trust & believe for more grace, more love, more of His Presence, more able to hear His whispers.
In a flash jolt today, I read Ann Voskamp’s tweet, pictured below…
I realized my boss had it right.
When we are feeling weak, we are to reach out.
We were not designed to do it all on our own. To grit out teeth and endure in painful isolation.
We were meant to tap into the source.
We are to reach out to our Abba, the Father who wants us to seek Him, to knock and interrupt Him to come on in and ask whatever we want to talk to Him about.
We are to reach out to Jesus, our Savior and brother, who intimately knew deep emotional, spiritual and physical pain. Who understands our needs even better than we do. Who is there to set us free, protect and speak up for us as we cry out to Him.
We are to reach out to Holy Spirit, our guide in all truth and knowledge. Who offers a comfort beyond comprehension, peace beyond our limited vision. Who strengthens us from within, beyond what we are capable of on our own.
Tapping out for help is not only wisdom, when we are faced with something we cannot cope with on our own, it’s the smarter way way to go.
Acknowledging your weakness and allowing God to fill in your lack is life changing.
I am somehow more than I ever imagined when I come into God’s Presence and tap into who He is, acknowledging I need His help in everything.
Will you join me and raise your hand in surrender?
Life beyond limits is awaiting….
