1. Only Those Who Ask for More Get More!
Please enjoy seven reasons to ask for help. “Only those who ask for more can get more and only those who know there is more, ask,” wrote Alan Cohen in his book, ‘Mr. Everit’s Secret.’ Ponder those profound words for a minute. I repeat, “Only those who ask for more can get more and only those who know there is more, ask.”
One thing that I know for sure is that there is more, a lot more in this awe-inspiring and wonderful universe: so much more to see, to experience, to connect to, to create, to understand, and to manifest and behold, so therefore, I ask. You can’t be afraid to ask. I ask God for help. I ask more of myself. I ask others for help. I believe that I receive more out of this life because I am not afraid to ask. And, we don’t only ask through words. We ask by what we focus our minds on: through our prayers, our thoughts, our speech, our feelings, our expectations, our service, our fears, and our faith.
2. We Set Our Transformation into Action by Asking
I believe we humans were born to imagine and create, to change, to grow, to reach higher, and to transform. A challenging, inspiring, and worthy pursuit is what keeps us alive and gives meaning to our lives. And since we each have been given free will, we get to choose where we reach, what we will reach for and what changes we desire to see in ourselves and in our world. We set our own transformation into action by just asking.
3. Not Only Is It Okay to Ask, It’s Necessary to Ask
The universe is abundant with unlimited possibilities. And each of us is an heir to this boundless kingdom and all that was and will be created is for us. The Bible states: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door shall be opened.” It is not only okay to ask, but it is necessary to ask. For every effect is due to a cause. Asking sets things into motion and causes things to be given to you. If you don’t ask, you don’t get. Remember the biblical promise, “For everyone who asks receives.” So asking is really about faith. Do you believe that you will get what you ask for? Do you expect to receive? Have you made space for your grace?
