Reflection: Sometimes we get a desparate feeling that we’ve dug ourselves into a hole. How will we get out? When will we get out? This is when we must remember God’s power to help us. Reach out to God. Sometimes we need (to ask) help from others. So reach out to others asking for help; and in turn offer help when needed. God gave us hands and hands are for helping.
