It seems like there’s always someone we know who’s in a jam. Sometimes it might be minor, like their cell phone died and they need to make a call. Other times it might be something worse. However, no matter where we look you can find someone in a jam.
How many times in our own lives does this happen? Are you the type of person that no matter what kind of jam you find yourself in you keep it to yourself? Or are you the type that no matter how small the problem (jam) you always ask for help. Or maybe you’re somewhere in between.
For me, I think I’m somewhere in between. It’s hard sometimes to admit needing help. If you did you might think of yourself as a failure somehow. I know I feel this way sometimes.
When Mari was in the hospital, I felt completely helpless. As a parent all you want to do is make everything better for your little one. And yet all I could do was sit back and watch my daughter literally slip away right before my eyes.
The one thing we must all remember, even in the worst times of despair, we are all children to a Father who loves more than our brains could ever truly understand. So as I sat watching my daughter, God sat watching me, holding me, giving me the much-needed strength to get through. I know beyond a shadow of doubt that the reason I came out of that tragedy the way I did, and have today, was all because of our Heavenly Father. The blessings He has bestowed upon me are priceless.
So no matter what type of jam we may come across, just remember God is there right beside us leading us along the way.
