I admit, asking for help is a lesson I've needed to relearn many times. In a culture that celebrates busyness, strength, and ability, I have to consciously remind myself to ask for help.
Learning to ask for help, for courage, and for more (even of life's little extras) gives me a fresh understanding of God's generosity. To be sure, I don't always get what I want, but as I've learned to align my desires with what God wants for me, I see how he simply loves when I boldly, abashedly ask for the desires of my heart.
