I cried out, “I am broken! Jesus can you help me?”
It’s difficult to receive help when we don’t realize we need help. Life is unmanageable and our world is in constant chaos. We hurt others, others hurt us, we hurt ourselves. This vicious cycle continues until, one day, we come to the foot of a mountain we realize we can’t climb on our own. We need help. Finally, we see that we need to let go and let God. We give up trying to control our lives on our own. Our best thinking got us in this mess and now we’re so confused we can’t find our way out of the maze our lives have become. Our desire to maintain control gives way to faith, as we cry out to God, ready to trust Him with the worst of our worst.
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?Romans 8:31 (NIV)
A good friend of mine would often say “It’s hard to remember your job is to drain the swamp when you’re knee deep in alligators.” It’s true. Your life is so far off course that you have to look up to see bottom. We come to the point we see that we need help from someone greater than ourselves. We can’t do it on our own. We were never meant to go it alone. God is with us. God is for us. All the time. We must simply be ready to let go and let God. Faith-not control–is the answer. Recovery cannot begin to heal us from what ails us or runs our lives until we humble ourselves and admit that we need help,
