This week’s prompt : Help

If you’re like me, when it comes to this week’s theme, you’re more comfortable offering help than receiving it. But the truth is, you’ve probably needed more help on the field than you ever imagined.

Finding medicine for a sick kiddo or teammate, negotiating a lease, or building a new community of friends, the list for where and how we need help goes on and on.

In trying to be clever, I wanted to make an acronym around “help” the same ways we have one for “Grace” (God’s riches at Christ’s expense) or ACTS (praying through Adoration, Confession, Thanks, and Supplication) this was what I came up with:

Hell Envelops Longtime Pretending

I don’t think it’s going to catch on, do you? But maybe that’s what happens when we don’t ask for help or accept it when offered. Maybe another form of hell here on earth is when we need help and refuse it.

In wiring us together, there will be seasons where help morphs and takes on different forms. Join us this week as we explore “help.”  Meet us at The Grove beginning Thursday 6pm EST, and bring your thoughts, your art, your blog link-ups.

And don’t forget we finish the book As Soon As I Fell at book club on Tuesday and author Kay Bruner will join us for “Ask an author.”  It’s an amazing book and easy to read, so don’t miss out!
