Humbled by Need

God humbled me, when I had my son and wasn’t married,
I was MADE to take charity. It was hard. It would make me weep when people showed up at the door with groceries;
or would give me money to help me with gas;
or I would have to go to a ministry to get help paying my light bill, because my paycheck did not stretch far enough that month, or some unexpected car repair would take all I had in the bank.

Since those days, I have seen that there are some people that will not let you help them. I asked God…why? Why are these people so afraid to let others help them? What is the problem Lord?

I believe God showed me it is pride and a fear of judgment in them. These people have judged others with needs, and therefore, they see it as a weakness to have need and to ask for help. They have not yet been humbled or broken by God in this area. They have to maintain control, because asking for help requires vulnerability and humility. That could also mean that when these people DO help others, their heart might not be pure, and their motive may be off.

Don’t be afraid to ask for,
and take what you need,
or to give with a pure heart,
God will reward your humility.

      Yes that is my address…and you are so sweet! I actually got into a financial bind and asked for a refund :(. Trying to catch up on my bills, not sure when I’ll be going. They said they would keep me as a student, and hoped i could make it.

      God is doing some deep things in me…
      Preparing to send me to the nations He says… Trying to believe that. Been hot in the fire…but worth it!
