Help: When we pretend we don’t need it.

Joining Kate Motaung today for #FiveMinuteFriday

#FMF word = HELP




We were having a hard time.

I can’t remember what happened, all I know is we were eating lots of Ramen and trying to get by until payday.  My friend who was in the hospital, came to visit me before I could get to her. My van has been on its last leg and the gas money just wasn’t there to make the trip.

She stayed for days and it was a good visit.  Before she left, she slipped me $60.  I said what, no?! She said, yes. I tilted my head, not wanting to take it but knowing we could use it.

Fast forward to this past week.  A lady from church whom I have known for years and has become a mentor figure in my life, told me she felt like God laid it on her heart to watch my kids for a few hours every so often, so I can have some time alone.

Some of you reading may be new to my story, but we are a veteran family now turned trucking family so for the vast majority of my 12 years of marriage we have not had much time together, let alone -me without my kiddos.

This time I couldn’t act like I didn’t need it.  My reply was a mix of excited and thankful.

We all need help from time to time.  We all need our Savior daily. We just have to admit it.


Thanks for visiting today. I hope you were blessed my friend. Please click the badge below and see what others are writing about!

  1. Amen, Meghan! I just love when God gives a nudge to a friend and uses them to bless us. Enjoy those precious hours knowing your kiddos are in good hands. That’s a big part of the blessing, isn’t it?

  2. I just love when God speaks to a friend and uses them to bless us. Enjoy your blessing of time knowing your children are being loved on and cared for. That’s the best part, isn’t it? Blessings to you!

  3. What a wonderful blessing like your friend and like this woman who God used because he hears your prayers. I love it! Thank you, Jesus, for community! Sending loves and hugs and hoping your me-time is truly blessed in ways that have you spilling over. xoxo #FMFParty

  4. I am at that space in my life too, where I greatly appreciate the help that I am given. I am amazed that a dear friend who has a chronic disease prays for me and takes time to encourage me. Thank you for sharing your heart. I am your neighbor at FMF.
