Why Redemption and Self-help are one and the same

Can you save yourself, or do you need to be saved spirituality in order to get help?

Oxford languages on Goggle describes redemption as “the action of saving or being saved from sin, error, or evil.”

Is God the only one who can save me?

Do you want to be saved from the battles you’re facing? And do you feel trapped thinking the only way you can find help is by joining some spiritual lifestyle which takes what you like doing as bad? If I become spiritual do I lose my identity… because losing my identity doesn’t sound fair, right!

A lot of people need help. They look for it and they have researched a lot of resources where they can find help. When they conduct research, people tend to weigh the pros and cons. They ask themselves, if I choose to find help under this category, what will I have to give up in order to be saved? They realize that help is available, and it may save their life, but it’s the giving up something part which is hard.

A lot of people genuinely know that they need help… you can feel it. But sacrificing a lifestyle or addiction is hard when you have been doing it for a long time. You take the good part of it (10%) with the bad part of it (90%) because it’s all you know. But you need to sacrifice something in order to get something. That’s just how it goes.

Do you want (90%) happiness unlike (10%) happiness from what you have been doing? You need to sacrifice the (10%) happiness — addiction — you’ve been doing to reverse the (90%) bad which comes with it. Leave it a lone, abstain from doing it, and quit! The only Self-help I know is spiritual. Because when you look within yourself you will find that you are not a lone inside of you.

Why redemption is Self-help

There’s a spirit inside of you which works because of God. It lies idle — functioning — but idle waiting for the day you notice it. When you realize that it is there it will make itself available and it will provide four things in your life:

1. Hope,
2. Relief,
3. Gratitude,
4. Concrete feelings which develop your emotional intelligence.

If you’re not ready to believe in God, it’s okay. Though when you know that you have a spirit inside of you, from God, which is willing to help… it makes choosing to give up the (90%) bad you’re doing an option.

It won’t feel like a sacrifice anymore because the pros outweigh the cons. Self-help is spiritual. An inner spirit from God is available within you 24/7. You don’t need to log a call, book an appointment, or pay any money to get help from your spirit. God is free and He is the best help you can use everyday.

We all need help. Growth is a lifelong practice. You need to sacrifice something in order to get something. God says give (confess) all of your sins to Him… openthebible.org states:

“Two Important Truths About Confession

• You can confess your sins directly to God. You do not need to confess to a pastor, priest, or spiritual leader to be forgiven. …

• James tells us to confess our sins to one another. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.”

Confessing to God is the first step. You can do it by yourself; wherever you are, in whatever situation you’re going through. God listens and He doesn’t judge. Then go to a place where you can find help like a church or institution which helps the type of issue or pain you’re going through.


Most of our problems have solutions. Redemption is Self-help. They’re both connected and it’s an awesome place to be in when you use both of them to live your life. Letting go of (10%) fun to have (90%) of joy is a no-brainier to me
