From Busy to Blessing – Lending a Helping Hand

Do you have friends that are working on a large project? That could really use the helping hands of a few more people. Do you know how to fix a leak or build a deck? Offer your services! I can guarantee you that they won’t turn down the help.
From Busy to Blessing Lending a Helping Hand
Friends of ours are in the process of a huge home renovation: They’ve hosted several Work Days inviting friends and family to come and lend a hand, in exchange for food and undying gratitude.

Yea, but isn’t that kind of weird?

What’s weird about asking for help? Isn’t that something we should all do more of, instead of pretending we’ve got it all together?

How about we stop feeling like we have to have it all together and give someone else the chance to turn around and bless others! Often we feel as though we can’t let people help us, but if no one lets anyone ever help them, then no one is blessing anybody else. {Got that? A bit of jumble there.}

“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.”Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

I know for myself I struggle with this. And given the MASSIVE home renovation we’re thinking of taking on next year, I’ve already admitted that I’m going to have to swallow some pride and ask others to help. What’s going to work? Teamwork! {Name that show}.

We’re each given different talents by God. We sometimes just need to think outside of the box, and ourselves, to figure out how to reach out to our friends, to those who we should be able to ask anything of, but very often allow our pride to get in the way.

There are so many ways in which we can bless our friends, and the bottom line of all of it…doing something that lets them know that they are loved.
