When you see people at their most vulnerable, you realise each and every one of us, no matter their background or lifestyle, are just the same – they each have to rely on someone else to save them.
I recently watched a medical programme on TV where one of the doctors said those words. They were such powerful words I had to write them down when I heard them so I didn’t forget them.
When we are at our most vulnerable we really need those who love us and who can do something to help us, to be there with us – After all if you came across a building on fire, you wouldn’t call the coastguard to put out the fire would you, you’d call the fire brigade.
So when we’re feeling vulnerable we should turn to God, as he is the only one who can provide us with the love, support and help we need at that time – His answer may be to send us a friend to share our worries with; or give us direction when we there seems too many choices ahead of us. Whatever we face, God is the answer, so should be the one we turn to in our time of need.
