(A Cry To God For Help)

Cuthbert cross

(A Cry To God For Help)

Almighty, all-knowing, loving God, please help me with the wall that stands before me.  

I don’t know who built this wall (was it me ?) but I can see no door through it, and it’s too wide to go around. 

The strange thing is, this wall keeps appearing with different labels on it.  

Sometimes it says 'health' or 'wealth' or 'relationships' or 'friendships' or 'grief' or 'work' or 'church'.  

It’s an enormous obstacle and it’s confusing, even though I am trying to understand what you want me to do. 

Please can you help me to re-start my journey?  

I feel completely stuck and can’t go forward.  

I feel that my life is on hold and my feet are growing roots.  

Is this what you want - for me to stay stationary, where I am ? Or am I supposed to be moving ?

If you are waiting for me to do something specific, please can you help me see what it is I need to do ?  

I believe that you will help me get over this - but I don’t see how. . . . and it's been going on for so long now, I worry that I am missing something.  

Please grant me the assurance of your problem solving abilities. Help me to trust you to show me what you want me to do - according to your timing not mine.

Give me patience until it is your time - but if you're telling me something right now Lord, I'm sorry, I'm not seeing it, not hearing you. Please don't let me miss what you say to me. Please don't let me miss what you want me to do.  

I see me.  

I see my wall.  

I see you. 

I see you as a helper in my past.  

I see where you have made your will clear to me in the past.  

I see my wall. 

Past. Future. Now.  


'Jesus, I believe. Help me in my unbelief'.  


'For I know the plans I have for you,' says the Lord. 'They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. . . .when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me. I will be found by you' says the Lord. (Jeremiah 29 : 11-14. NLT)
