There is a biblical scripture that says: “in the body of Christ there are many parts” (hands, feet, heart, eyes, etc.). Each part has a function, but none can operate separately. (1 Cor. 12) We can’t just be a hand without an arm or an eye without a face.
So many times in our actions, especially when we decide that we must be in total control of every thing in our lives, we hold on to the idea that we can operate separately—without our friends, counselors, pastors, family, and work associates.
We are all a part of the same functioning whole.
To live a complete life, you must make an outward connection with this whole; otherwise, you will be operating at a loss, trying to function without the energy and power of the whole.
For instance, if you lost your job and felt as if you couldn’t pay your bills, the worst thing you could do would be to go inward. The help you need is completely outside of you.
Though the government agencies that help people with this problem can’t help with every one of your needs, they can certainly relieve some of the worst problems, like providing food stamps or government assistance. Also, friends and family may be willing to extend a hand. Many times, if you are part of a church family, there are specific funds allotted to help in situations just like yours. So, you see, if you don’t open your arms to the whole, you may end up feeling worse than you need to.
Also, think about if you were sick and needed to be admitted to a hospital. Who would help you with your life (your children, your job, your finances, your pets, food preparation)? If we don’t feel we have a village around us, we are liable to feel alone and afraid. I know I would have these feelings if I didn’t have my family, friends, spiritual helpers, husband, and work associates around.
Life isn’t about being alone. Life is about learning to trust. What we need is always available to us. If you don’t believe this is true, then you will find yourself in a desperate situation, usually in depression.
If this makes sense to you, and you want to make changes in your life, follow these important steps:
1. Find someone who can counsel you to make choices you didn’t know were available;
2. Reach out to every available source and lifeline;
3. Research online every government agency that could help you. Make appointments and accept the help; and
4. If you have a spiritual resource in your life, go there. Sometimes, even when you don’t have a spiritual home, you can become involved with one that has community services like a food bank and places for people who need shelter.
It’s never too late to get help. Call and reach out today.
