Somedays I feel like Moses-not in the great leader of many people way, but in the I need help way. The hand’s up way, like Aaron and Hur did for Moses. They held his hands steady until the end of the day.
Dear widow, do you ever feel that way? If only you could have help doing ___________(Fill in the blank) it would be such a blessing.
Some women can fix anything, but my brain isn’t wired that way. As a widow, I find that I can use help in more than one field. One is in heavy lifting.
My frustration shows the most when I am working on my computer. Once I pressed “pin it” after I finished a document, and I never found it again!
Lately, I wrote a tract for widows, complete with a picture. A week later, I couldn’t find it anywhere on my computer! A friend gave me several suggestions when I had a different computer issue, but they didn’t work. I am sure it was not her fault, but my error.
Obviously, I am doing some things wrong.
So, where am I going with this? I need to learn the basics of what I am trying to do. Then, like Moses, I should allow others to help me before I get to the place of frustration and weariness.
I Peter 5:7 tells me “Casting all your care upon Him for He careth for you.”
The Lord cares about my everyday life and wants to handle my issues, which makes me grateful.
How can I reach out and help other widows? By being a good listener. Everyone has a story to tell and they need someone to listen. I can’t help with their computer problems, but I can listen.
