A Reflection (1)

When I was young, I knew the quote: "God helps those who help themselves." I always thought that seemed selfish.  Many I knew already put all their problems to God.  Many I knew often misinterpreted this quote, thinking that this quote was almost a "get out of jail free" card or something.  Thinking they could take and not give.  I will have to return to these thoughts later to better explain what I mean (I am a bit foggy in my thinking right now).  I always thought to myself, though, I am filled with so much power.  I can do what I need to do.  I could feel my own potential, and I went out to do what I knew that I could.  I found in my life, by being hard working, honest, and humble, I could live life brighter somehow.  I felt that someone above me appreciated the use of my own gifts.  They were so happy that I lived true to myself in that sense.  They were also glad in my giving much of my own energy to those that needed it.  I saved someone from some very dark, dark depths before.  I believe I saved her life.  There were times when things were even out of my reach and I asked for help.  The one I remember the best is when traveling with my family on a 12-hour road trip. I know I helped to save us all that day by asking for protection beyond my reach.  I am still grateful to this day.
