My Hands

This is Joni Eareckson Tada, and as a quadriplegic, I love borrowing people's hands. My own hands don't work, and so I need the help of others to reach for books, open doors, assist me in and out of my wheelchair, help me put on a jacket... all kinds of things. I used to feel badly about asking for help. But I realized I was being proud. It’s why I'm so grateful for my disability. When I ask for help, it deflates my pride, fosters humility, causes me to depend on others, gives my friends an opportunity to serve, strengthens my reliance on God, gives me a lowly perspective on myself… I could go on and on. So, friend, if you have to ask for help today, don’t be ashamed… be grateful! God will do some pretty rich things in your life and the life of others. Asking for help is a godly thing to do.
