DEPENDING ON ONE’S SELF

            I always used to think I was a pretty independent person.  I could solve my own problems and would seldom ask anyone for help.  As a matter of fact one of my sayings was “I will always do more for you than you will ever do for me” how arrogant was that.  This was all well and good when things were well but early this year I was diagnosed with cancer.  I learned quickly how independent I truly wasn’t.  I had to depend on my family, my doctors, nurses, medications, Chemotherapy, cat-scans, x-rays, it was just unbelievable how helpless I truly was.  Suddenly I needed all those people in my life and for the first time in my life I listened to what they told me.  I gained a greater respect for those who were going through the same thing I was going through and got a clear understanding that alone, I would never have victory, but with the help of other, I was going to make it.  A man who is in honor, yet does not understand, is like the beasts that perish.  Psalm 49:20

PRAYER 4 TODAY

Lord forgive me for thinking I was more than I was.  Show me I am not an island, I need love, I need people, I need You.  Forgive my lack of understanding and give me new eyes to see I can’t make it on my own.

THOUGHT 4 TODAY

You do way more for me, than I will ever do for You.
