Through Not Around

Christian life doesn't take you out of crisis it equips you to live through them.

If given the choice we'd all choose to opt out of going through crisis in our lives. However, that isn't an option we have to choose from. What we do get to pick from is how we choose to go through these times of crisis that come uninvited.

The life offered by God as a part of His family equips us to go through these crisis by the strength we receive from the Lord by reading His word, spending time in prayer, concentrating on what He has to tell us to guide us through even the most difficult time.

Drawing from His power we find strength in being patient. We find comfort in trusting the Lord to see us through. We find security in knowing that He is in charge. Soon it becomes obvious why He said in Proverbs to "trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding."
