One of the few stores I actually enjoy being in is a bookstore. One section that has always amazed me with its continuing popularity is the self help section. It seems there is no end to new ones being written. They have been around for many years. There have been a select few I have recommended to people over the years emphasis on select few.
If I were to write a self help book, it would be the shortest read ever. It would be a two word self help book. The two words would be- Ask Jesus.
Ask Jesus? Wouldn’t I add anything more? No.
My thinking is that Jesus is the creator of the universe. He defeated death through his resurrection. He is omniscient. Why not go to the one who can always help, loves us and has already invited us to come to him. Matthew 11:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
If I ask Jesus in prayer, he might guide me to someone who can help. When I ask Jesus, ideas come to me that I haven’t thought of before. When I ask Jesus, he goes to work through his people.
So consider this post my free of charge self help book.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

Thanks much. Appreciate it
Thank you for reading little sister. HOw are you?
Am doing well thanks. Enjoying my vacation and getting some rest
rest is good 🙂
That’s pretty well summed up. Life was meant to be sooooo simple.
We make it complicated though
We really do.
Thanks, Matt!! What a lovely short but significant self-help book! ✝️❤️
Thank you little sister
Often the simple truths are the most profound
🥰🥰 been there. I love book stores too. Yesterday a friend asked me about what to do about some issues with her Father , I told her ask Jesus because that’s what I would do , she hasn’t gotten back to me 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Maybe one day she will get back to you 🙂
until then you can pray for her
Oh, that’s so wierd. Like father like daughter. I wrote almost the exact same thing about writing a self help book and how it would point to Jesus. I beat you to it dad! 😆😆😆 Love you! ❤❤❤
Love you too 🙂 🙂 🙂
Yes you beat me to it 🙂
Amen! Jesus has the answers and solutions for everything or anything we encounter on our journey.🥰👣
Yes he does 🙂
He is there ahead of us
That’s a really good idea. Maybe you can just add a few more words to your self book to make it clear. Write it like this, and I hope this doesn’t consume more paper than you had planned😂
Before you buy the next self help book, consult Jesus😊
Amen consult Jesus first
lol- hope this doesn’t consume more paper
I’d buy that book!
Good point Matt!!
Thank you little sister. Are you taking it easy?
Well I guess so…I ended up with Covid so now I’m in quarantine until next weekend!👎🏼 feeling much better today though!!
So sorry about that. Will be praying for you
Smiles. He is our all round help. ✨💯💯
How is life in Holland? DO you like the cooler temps?
It’s been nice and cold. 😁
On the bright side I prefer cold to hot. Though this is on a higher level than I was used to. Thank God for warm clothes. 😅
Just wait until January lol
Smiles. Oh my! 🙈
Asking the Lord for strength. 😁
That’s is true! It is amazing how he will lead us and answer our questions when we ask Him.
It is a lifelong adventure 🙂
Amen! Matt, you nailed it!
Ask Jesus seems simplistic but why not ask the one who has all knowledge, all power, and who loves us
