Self Help Sunday

This is a picture taken in Manhattan, NY. I cracked up when I saw it. The lady who took it and posted it on her blog lives in NY and has a self help blog. I enjoyed reading it...hmm what does that say about me?

Is there such a thing as self help? I have pondered this and realize that for me the only real help comes from God. I am helpless to "fix" myself. In church this morning the pastor spoke of a supernatural help in tough situations, the help and healing and forgiveness that can only come from God.

Yes, I can do healthy things...pray,walk, read my Bible, eat well, attend church, seek wise counsel, seek good support, quiet time,laugh keep my mind and body healthy, but only God can heal a broken spirit. Only God can keep us tender through the hurts.

So, self help God.
