I am going to take some liberties with the Beatles song “Help”. I know that they did not intend for it to be used this way but while watching a show, the song hit me in a weird way and, after looking at the lyrics in a different way, it hit me, we all need help. Take a look at the lyrics with me.
When I was younger, so much younger than today I never needed anybody's help in any way But now these days are gone I'm not so self assured And now I find I've changed my mind
And opened up the doors
Help me if you can, I'm feeling down And I do appreciate you being 'round Help me get my feet back on the ground Won't you please, please help me, help me, help me
When I was younger, nothing really troubled me, well nothing major that is. I didn’t really need much of anything but as time went along, things really didn’t do much of anything anymore and it always felt like I was chasing after one thing or another but never really being satisfied with anything. One day, I found the one who could answer my many questions, the one who could open up the doors to a future that was so filled with hope and joy, I wondered how I never really knew the fullness of life before Him. I was fooling myself into thinking that the temporary things of the world could outshine the gifts from a loving God. He truly got my feet back on the ground and He helped me so much to get me rolling in the right direction. .
Every time I had a rough time, He was consistently there, with me, guiding me and lifting me back onto my feet when times were so dark. There were those moments when I was a wreck and He helped me regain my way. So much good comes from God and yet so many turn away because they either don’t fully understand or they don’t want to trust without proof. Many will seek out DIY to solve their issues but, truth be told, the answer to all life’s issues is faith in a loving Saviour who only wants us to lean on Him and trust in His way. When I needed help, He has never failed me. Is it time for you to call out to Him to help you?
For the next month, we are going to explore what mission means and how we can all be a part of communicating His promise to those who are seeking a new way to love and peace. The service will be broadcast online (see links below), or you are more than welcome to join us in person at 10:30 AM, at 402 Main Ave. W in Sundre, AB.
