πŸ™Š HELP HELP!!! πŸ—£

Help - calling out for help

How many of us have fallen into the category of those who because of a particular circumstance or experience they have previously faced just sort of, shut out the possibility of letting things out?.

By letting things out I mean, being expressive of whatever is going on, on your inside.

Get help - speak out

Some of us are screaming “help” on our inside without having the exact words to express it and trust me that is so not an easy spin to handle all alone.

Personally, I have had such moments I am literally screaming help “these thoughts are about to choke me right now”. And when I get to the point where I’m to say it out – I freeze. It’s like all of a sudden, I don’t have the exact words to say what is going on internally. πŸ˜ͺ

So I shared mine because the truth is we have our struggles and it’s okay. It’s okay in the sense that you are not alone. And it’s very okay to need help. β˜‘
But letting such things hold you back from so much and what lies ahead for you, is what is not okay. ❎

Break free - your struggles shouldn't hold you back

So as we go forth today, let’s note that even when we may not have all the words to speak out our struggles. Let’s say it in any way we can. It may just be sending a text to someone you share your mind with. Or even saying out “Pray for me, I am struggling” or “I need help” to the person or people, as the case may be.

Over time, you will get to articulate it all. It’s all a process. And you will get through it.

Be confident that you will get through this

So this is for us to know that it’s okay to need help and it’s okay, to be honest about it. It’s okay to want to let it out and it’s okay because you are not alone. Most importantly, What I know is that you will get through this. We all will and trust me “this will all be history someday” and it will be a part of our testimony. πŸ’ƒπŸ’―

Your struggles are channels into your testimonies

I will leave you with this text:

And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessorβ€”Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), to be with you foreverβ€”

John 14:16 (AMP)

You are not helpless - you are helped

Blessings. ❀

Happy Monday. Wishing you a blessed new week. πŸ’ƒ

  2. Yes, keeping it all inside happens to me quite often. What I do when that happens is get out my Journal and express my thoughts, hurts, disappointments, etc. It really helps my emotional well-being.

      This is so true. Journalling has been a huge blessing to me too. I also engage this by making a confession chart. It does help. Thank you for sharing this ma’am. πŸ€—β€

        1. Smiles. The idea was from having a “prayer chart” from the movie – war room. 😊

          You get to write a verse that speaks to you and other words of promises and confess them. It really helps build our faith and become more aware of His word at that time, for that situation as the case may be.
          Yes it is. πŸ’―

          Wishing you a great weekend. 😊

    When the night comes or the sky turns gray ,
    The sky showers us to grow and stay ,

    To God we sway , that every sun ray ,

    Thanks for this piece, many times I struggle with myself for fear of my words won’t count, and it hurts especially when I could presume the side effect and most times shed tears without a single drop from my eyes, until I learn to cry out when I’m alone for Help. Like screaming for Help and it will all be fine all of a sudden. Thanks for this ma

  13. I’m one of the people who hide behind the generic response to the “how are you ” question when In actual fact I’m not genuinely okay and my inner being is crying out for help..I will be needing someone to just pick up the hint so that I let it all out ..but seems like people these days are impatient to really look beyond what’s on the surface, checking up on each other just becomes out of duty not that they really want to hear every detail to the last letter ..I’m speaking for myself but I know there a lot more like me out there!

      Hmm. I can relate dear. And one thing that has helped me is to just “call for help” instead. Sometimes people are not necessarily busy to help out, it may just be that they feel one is okay, and that is because they are not aware. A big hug for you sis.
      I am open, if you need to talk. If that is okay by you. β€πŸ€—

    Herry, I adore your heart and transparency in writing this. I am 100% guilty of keeping things bottled up inside. You describe it perfectly – sometimes, I just don’t even know how to articulate what it is I’m feeling. Sometimes I feel numb and can’t stop the intrusive, flooding attacks against my mind. I get exactly where you’re coming from. πŸ€—

    You are helping so many people with this post. We need to know that others are going through struggles too. That life isn’t always roses, sunshine, and perfect days! We can’t help anyone if we aren’t willing to show our own difficult days.

    Thank you for being obedient to Holy Spirit in sharing this beautiful message. You are so very precious and I’m grateful to have ‘met you’ sweet friend! β™₯

    This is so timely…
    lately, i kindof feel no one really cares about me as no one even checked on me despite the fact that i was out of anything social including social media. but Alas, someone did check up and opened my heart to the person then I’m good. my playful and jovial personality has always helped me to overcome whenever i needed help.
    jokingly, i let it out and I’m blessed with understanding friends that understands even my whisper.

    thanks for the writeup… more wisdom
