When I need help

My office was a mess just over a year ago. The wallpaper was 35 years old. My stenciled inspirational stick-on quote was only half there. The painted areas were dingy, and there was damage due to daily use.
 
I had a vision: white shiplap.
 
It seemed a great solution for walls that were halfway wallpapered and halfway painted.
 
Because we hadn’t hung shiplap before, I turned to the best how-to source I knew: You Tube. After watching several videos, I realized the project was going to be more complicated than I could handle. So I got help from two experts–our carpenter friends, who did a perfect job.
 
I was just thinking earlier this morning that the Bible was the first You Tube, the first how-to methodology of communication.
 
Just as You Tube tells people’s stories (“this is how we shiplapped our walls”), the Bible tells God’s story–his pursuit of a relationship with men and women over thousands of years.
 
So, when I struggle with my marriage or with lack of confidence or with confusion about my own next steps of life, I turn to God’s story, the Bible.
 
And turn my life over to the Expert.
