Who Helps the Helper?

A friend of mine gave me this little slip of paper a few weeks ago, and here’s what was on it:


Women tend to be helpers.  They cant help it.  God made them this way.  From the foundation of the earth, their primary job has been to help.

It’s a woman’s nature to assist, to nurture, to render care.  Even in these of more “equitable” roles, it’s typically the woman who is found feeding the baby at 2am, cheering on the young soccer players, counseling the college student by long distance phone calls, holding a shaky hand in a hospital room, and comforting the bereaved at a funeral.

Helping can be exhausting.  The needs of young children, teens, grandchildren, aging parents, our neighbors and fellow church members-the list is never ending-can stretch us until we’re ready to snap.  Then we find that WE need help.  Who helps the helper?

The Lord does, when we are weak, He is strong.  When we are vulnerable, He is our shield.  When we cant trust in our own resources, we can trust in Him.  We can trust in Him before we snap.  He is always there, ready to help.  Rejoice in Him, Praise His name and you will find the strength to go on. “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him and I am helped.  Therefore my heart gladly rejoiceth, and with my song I will praise Him.” Psalm 28:7

Isnt this true ladies? We are helpers, we are nurturing, then we come to the point that we need help, we are exhausted, we are agitated (I am anyway, maybe you are patient but I’m not).  He is our help.  Rely on Him today!!
