drowning2It’s great how we all try to help one another through difficult or troubling situations, however we must be willing to recognise when we are out of our depth.

The person in difficulty may be troubled by something we know nothing about or have no personal experience of.

It’s ok to tell someone that you want to help them but feel their problem is out with your knowledge or expertise to help them. Always offer to introduce them though to someone else who you know can help them better than you could.

Never leave someone in need thinking they are on their own and no-one understands their situation or how they feel, as reassurance I something that is always welcomed by those in need.

DebtSadly we live in an age where debt and need seem to be prevalent, and if anything the situation seems to be getting worse as more and more people in our communities are struggling to stay on top of their money problem.

So financially many in our communities are struggling, but what about their spiritual well-being?

Sadly I personally think that is just as bad a situation as their finances, as so many churches are finding fewer and fewer people attending, resulting in many churches being forced to either amalgamate with other churches, or close completely.

I don’t have any magic solutions on how to help those struggling financially, however as far as the spiritual well-being of those around us we can all do something to help them…

Tell them about God, and how He loves them and can help them in every situation life throws their way.

So go on, help this world in debt by telling those around you about God, because He will make a huge difference in everyone’s life.

In yesterday’s blog post Helping Isn’t Always Easy I spoke about a situation I’ve been in recently where I been finding it quite difficult to help someone in need. So I wondered, was it just coincidence that today I came across the following quote?

Stop talking about what everybody has done to you and start talking about what you can do for somebody else.

Life isn’t about the past and what has happened in it, it’s about living in the present and looking to the future. Therefore forgive those who have hurt you in the past, move on, and find things you can do to help others. After all there are so many people in need in this world it’s not difficult to find someone who needs your help!

Helping isn’t always easy however there are plenty of people in this world in need of help so don’t be put off just because some may not react in the manner you’d expect when you try to help them.

When times are tough and no-one seems to be able to help you or lift you out of the darkness, turn to God…He is all you need…He is all you will ever need.

Let God into your life today, and let Him be you everything today and everyday.

Draw Me Close To You

Draw me close to You
Never let me go
I lay it all down again
To hear You say that I’m Your friend

You are my desire
No one else will do
‘Cause nothing else could take Your place
To feel the warmth of Your embrace
Help me find the way
Bring me back to You

You’re all I want
You’re all I’ve ever needed
You’re all I want
Help me know You are near
