HELP WANTED



I am having quite a dilemma—really...several rolled into one larger one...

This goes on throughout life, but at the moment it is quite deep...

I feel as if I am sinking deeper and deeper by the day under this great heavy burden...



I am so weak…I’m not sure why...

Other than I just am.

So...

I pray that the Lord will strengthen me—even strengthen me to WANT to be strengthened!



I look to the want ads for help…



Under the title "Help"...



This is what I find…

Seven ads for Help...

The Lords number...



Isaiah 41:10, 13

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

For I the Lord thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.

Psalms 119:173

Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts.

Psalms 40:13

Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me: O Lord, make haste to help me.

Psalms 46:1

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Psalms 60:11

Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.

Psalms 121:1-2

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

Isaiah 50:7

For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.


The only two requirements asked are...

FAITH...



And a SICKLE...

Doctrine and Covenants 31:5

Therefore, thrust in your sickle with all your soul, and your sins are forgiven you, and you shall be laden with sheaves upon your back, for the laborer is wothy of his hire. Wherefore, your family shall live.

Doctrine and Covenants 33:7

“…wherefore, thrust in your sickles, and reap with all your might, mind, and strength.




James 2:20

For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.


May we all have the strength to pray for strength that we may strengthened.
