Have you ever seen someone carrying more than they should, and you ask if they need help? The response can be shocking, thanks I'm fine. I look ridiculous, but I can carry five grocery bags at once. I wasn't really good at asking for help for quite a while. I tried to figure stuff out on my own too much. I tried to carry more than I should. I tried to do more than I should. I still do, but I have learned asking for help is good. It's better to ask. It's refreshing to ask.

James 1:5 says, "If you need wisdom-if you want to know what God wants you to do -ask him, and he will gladly tell you." God wants us to ask for help. We don't have to figure everything out on our own. We also don't have to feel like we shouldn't ask. God wants to give us wisdom.

So even if you aren't very good at asking for help with your groceries, ask God for wisdom. Ask everyday. Ask knowing that God will answer.
