Is It Difficult for You to Need and Accept Help?

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” (Matthew 25:40)

Chalk it up to pride. Call it stubborn. Maybe willful.

However you choose to describe it, one of the most difficult aspects of chronic illness and disability is the necessity of accepting help.


No one wants to be “the least of these.”

  1. Thank you for your beautiful words. As someone with bad legs and knees because of a disorder I was diagnosed with when I was two. Even in my late 20’s, I still find it hard to ask for help sometimes. Sometimes something simple like can I hold on to your shoulder while I step off this curb, or will you help me make my bed (my bed is on the ground and it’s hard to make because when you make it you have to be on your knees) or can you climb this ladder for me to put something in storage. (Because of my balance I have a hard time with ladders).

    Thanks again for being encouragement when I need it.
    You are a blessing.

    • Chrissy, it’s amazing that something that would seem so simple to the one helping is just SO hard for us to ask for. I definitely relate. Praying for you! You are worth the asking, worth the effort. Please take care of you. Heart Hugs, Shelly <3

  2. I can relate to this, in a way. We have needed to accept financial help lately. It has been a very humbling experience as I would much rather be in a place where we can give than one of having to receive. I know God is using this time to grow us, so in that we find great comfort. It isn’t easy, but it is necessary for our growth. Thanks for the post!
