One of the hardest parts of being a Mom, for me, is asking for help and accepting it. I like to tell myself that I can do everything. It even sounds funny when I say it. I really don’t do anything by myself. Most things I do are a community effort.
But sometimes I really do need help. I am sick or too tired. I have a great support system around me. But, when I am tired and sick, I am really bad at asking for help. People don’t like how I ask. Then I get even more anxious about asking for help.
Now I need help and I am asking in the wrong way! Why did I even ask for help in the first place?
God is always there when I need help. Even when I am home alone with a screaming baby. Phil 4:6 says, “Do not be anxious about anything, BUT IN EVERYTHING, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
I am grateful that I am not here all alone during the day doing this by myself. I have supportive family, and friends to help me. This includes God who is always here if I need help. Don’t worry all three of them don’t provide help exactly how I want it, but they give me the help that I need.
