Help Wanted


“Surely God is my help; the Lord is the one who sustains me” (Psalm 54:4, NIV).

Being an unemployed young lady, seeing a “Help Wanted” sign makes me happy because I know that I have a chance of getting hired. But honestly, what really gets me excited is the fact that I get to help those who need it! In case you haven’t guessed it, I love to help people. I don’t really know why, but I thank God that He has put the desire in me to even want to help those around it. He is teaching me to help them the way they need it, not the way I think they should be helped.

Anyway, I’ve been privileged to be in the position of helping those around me who needed help, either through prayer or helping them move things around or simply being there for them. It’s been an absolute pleasure as well! Lately I’ve been thinking to myself that I could be a professional helper, living day by day, having clients I can help. That actually makes me happy! God’s will be done hahaha!!

Today, however, I realized that I can only help for so long. What am I talking about? I am tired! I don’t think I’ve ever felt so tired before. I kept thinking to myself today: how can I be of help to anyone when I’m even too tired to move from point A to point B? As I was thinking about this, I realized that God never gets tired! Can you imagine that?! Imagine the billions of people in the world; now imagine the millions who pray daily to Him for help. Still, He reaches out to people, wanting to help them. So, when David said that God is his sustainer, I know what he means.

The people I have been privileged to help only had me for a few hours– this is not to boast, but to show my own limitations as a human being. But God is ALWAYS there! He is always ready to be of help to us, to take our burdens, to give us rest; plus, He is everlasting, the ever present help when we need it. So, friends, when in need of help, go to God! He will be there for you, every step of the way! Man can only help for so long until he gets tired or weak or disinterested. But God made you, and yes, He wants to be there for you! Turn to Him!
