When your serene life becomes painful, what do you do?

By May 25, 2017January 27th, 2023No Comments

Do you believe that God has started something good in your life?

 1 Thessalonians 5 says, “May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.”

In times of crisis, you and I are wired to go into fight or flight mode.

Our heavenly Father created us with the ability to sense the danger and react quickly to protect ourselves. Often with an intense clarity and focus. When you look back you are amazed by the split-second decisions made that greatly impacted the outcome.

But what do you do when the crisis, the attack as it were, comes from the person closest to you in the world?

During such a crisis time, the Father spoke through the pain, allowing us to make decisions that did set us up for success. Thankfully some of the first words we heard when we sought immediate help were, “This addiction is not fatal.” We had choices in this crisis.

It didn’t feel good.
It was painful.
It forever changed us.

But, in the midst of the crisis, God our Father reminded us that He had begun a good work in our lives. He was still working something good in each one of us. God hadn’t abandoned us, nor would He.

However, we did have some choices to make.

What are you facing today that feels overwhelming? Are you ready to run or fight? Do you believe you have a way out?

Whether it is your marriage, a personal crisis, a family crisis, or some other crisis, you do have choices. More importantly, you are not alone. Your heavenly Father is as near as the air you breathe.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
