Asking is hard. It implies we are deferring control, respect, and power to someone else. It says that either we can't do something for ourselves or we are trusting someone else to do it for us. It means we acknowledge we want or need help.
Yet... that's what we are called to do. It is complex - just asking, trusting, relinquishing, bowing down to, giving way to, bending, accepting, waiting. And yet it is so simple - just ask.
Try it. Just ask.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7 see this verse and alternate translations @ Biblehub (free!)
I'm a writer... so that means I write a bunch. Blogs are just the pieces that never make it into the final cut.
