To believe you are a success in this world is two steps removed from reality. To admit that your life is unmanageable and help from a higher source is needed is to come one step closer to truth.
 
This is a big wake-up call. There is a desperate unhappiness beneath the false confidence of personhood. A proud, highly accomplished self-concept is a cover over a self that is lost and has forgotten God. This self is wounded, and to keep this hurt out of awareness, the mask of personal achievement is heavily defended and maintained.
 
The hiding and pretense isn’t fooling anyone. However, readiness for healing cannot be forced. The recognition of the need for help comes from within. We are so deeply loved by God that angels will keep showing up in support, whatever it takes.
