What have I become

Spiritual growth involves contrary action, actions contrary to what the ego demands. Strength, I find, is knowing when you can't do something and ask someone bigger for help.

When a child falls, it is surprised, then may cry, and then it knows to reach out for its parents' help. Automatically.

What have I become, that I forget to reach up for God's help when I find myself weeping on the ground? Over and over and over?
