God Help Us Every One

Tiny Tim in “A Christmas Carol” prays “God bless us every one.”
Despite his physical disability, Tiny Tim didn’t think he was alone –
or that even he, more than others, needed God’s help. He was
wise enough to know that all of us – everyone – are dependent on

Scripture tells us “The fool says in his heart there is no God.”
Believing we are capable of providing for ourselves or thinking we
have no need for God is pretty foolish. Every cell in our bodies is
created by God, every breath of air is a gift from God, every good
thing “comes down from the Father of Light.” When we think we
are something, God reminds us that we are nothing apart from
Him (“Dust to dust – ashes to ashes”). The rock group Kansas
had it right when they sang, “All we are is dust in the wind.”

Dust has little power in itself, but dust storms can change the face
of the planet. When the wind of God’s Spirit blows in and through
us, mighty and amazing things can happen, but “apart from God
we can do nothing.”

God help us. Help us, Lord, to see who we are and who You are,
and how empty and barren we are without You. Teach us to
depend upon You – to seek you for help in good times and in
difficult times. Help us, God, to let go of pride and to be weak
enough to cry out to You. You are our strength, and You will help
all those who call upon You – everyone!
