Lenten affirmation, day 6

Today I affirm that there are times when I am absolutely helpless. I affirm that needing help is not a weakness. I and I affirm my need to silence the voice that says otherwise. I affirm the goodness of being physically stranded and lost as a reminder of those times when I am emotionally, psychologically, or spiritually, stranded and lost. And I affirm that I am surrounded with people who are willing to help me if I would only get over my self (i.e. my pride, my fear of rejection or embarrassment, my ego) and allow myself to be served. I need help!

Today I am grateful to Stanley and his partner whose name I didn’t catch for pulling my car out of an icy ditch. I am grateful for the vivid re-enactment of the parable of the Good Samaritan I was given. I am thankful for technology that allows me to call for help. I am thankful for co-workers who are willing to poke a little good-spirited fun at me. I am thankful to those with the tenacity to see a situation through to the end. I am thankful for the reminder that I really need to start asking for help in so many areas of my life and thankful for those that are willing to be of help to me.
