In an age of books, apps, and TV shows focused around plans to help us do anything on our own,
the "self-help" movement has created a monster in the human race. If it can be whipped into shape, then MyFitnessPal will give me plan to get into shape in 30 days. If it can be made, Pinterest has a DIY plan for a trendy throw pillow made out of an old sweater. If it can be emotionally repaired, Dr. Phil has a plan to help me help myself.
The problem is, we were designed by a Creator who knows how we work best - one who knit us together from the beginning. One who can put things back together when no one believes they can. We can really only find ourselves whole when we entrust our healing and our shaping and our molding to the One who knows the Master plan. And His best plan involves being grafted into the Vine so that we can be pruned as the Master Gardener sees fit.
