So, I am going through life knowing that I have inside of me issues, but for whatever reasons, I won’t ask for help.I can make my outside look good to the world, thank goodness others can’t see what is going on in the inside.As the reading points out, there is a very simple solution. Just ask!!If you don’t ask you’ll never get, simple as that. Why live with inner turmoil?? luv

The great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.
—Walter Bagehot

Everyone knew Jacob was a bitter old hermit who hated people. He lived by himself in a cabin in the woods. He never came to town, never talked to anyone, and never put up a mailbox or put in a phone. But he had one thing the townsfolk wanted — the very first Bible brought by a preacher when the town was first settled. They wanted it for their centennial celebration.

Little Tom listened as the townsfolk complained daily about how much they wanted the old book to put on display. One day, he walked on out to the little cabin and just asked the old man if he could borrow the book, just for a week. Imagine the surprise on the faces of the people when the boy wandered back to town with the old dusty book in hand.

Are we like the townspeople sometimes? Do we assume things won’t work out without even trying? Sometimes help is there, just waiting to be asked. What have we got to lose?
