Ready and Willing

Our daughter had rotator cuff surgery and my husband and I have been taking turns being the "nurse" in the house (although I don't need the quotations mark because I AM a nurse.)

Since she is essentially one armed she still needs a great deal of help with even the simplest of things, but like the rest of our family, our daughter is very independent and wants to do everything she can herself.  I am sitting here, not far from her, ready and willing to help. I am simply waiting for her to ask for my assistance, or for her to let me do something for her that she is trying to do herself, which I can do more easily with my two able arms.

You see where I am going with this, don't you?  The Lord is infinitely "ready and willing" to help and provide for us and He, too, is waiting for us to ask, or waiting for us to let Him do something for us that He could do much better than we can with our limited abilities.

We need not hesitate in any moment to call out to Him, just as I don't want my daughter to hesitate to call out to me for help.  That's what I am here for!  That's what He is there for, too.  His heart is for us, He cares for us.  Call out to Him, take your issues, concerns, problems, troubles, needs and desires to Him with a heart of assurance that He is waiting for you to do so.

"Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you." 
1 Peter 5:7
