Empty handed

As for me, since I am poor and needy, let the Lord keep me in his thoughts. You are my helper and my savior. O my God, do not delay. Ps. 40:17

The independent, capable, in control approach works great until unavoidable pain, immediate danger, or problems we can’t fix take dependence from a theological concept to a practical reality. We are always in God’s thoughts and He loves helping us so maybe the delay happens because nobody likes to feel poor and needy.

Lord, I am once more falling face first, empty handed into Your mercy and grace.
