I’m honored to join iBelieve.com today as I discuss the transformative power of serving others but also accepting their service to you.
How do you feel about accepting help from others? Was graciously asking for and accepting help as well as humbly serving something you were taught or saw modeled growing up? How do you think our culture views asking for and accepting help? What has been your experience in asking for and accepting help in Christian circles?
I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
Let me tell you about unseen beauty, silent comfort, touchless embraces, solitary support. The rhythm and ever-present beating of the heart of the Body of Christ as it rings in my ears and soothes my soul. Let me tell you how I’ve been healed, transformed, by accepting help from others.
On April 30, 2013, I got some astounding news. Twelve weeks in to my second pregnancy, and there wasn’t just one little nugget growing in my womb, but two. Twins.
Wait. What. Twins?
Suddenly there were double the appointments, double the stuff to buy and borrow and assemble and sort and organize. It all panicked me just a little. I was filled with fear and excitement for this new season, but kinda mostly fear. Fear that everyone would wish me well and ask to see pictures, but I would drown alone under piles of laundry and diapers and dishes and tears.
Then, one by one they came. With unseen beauty, silent comfort, touchless embraces, solitary support.
