Hope no one minds that I'm not writing about a certain scripture today. But it is my birthday month so I'm writing about whatever I want. This actually was my favorite meditation for this week.
...to have a crisis and act upon it is one thing. To dwell in perpetual crisis is another. Barbarbara Grizzuti Harrison
Exaggerating the negative element in our lives is familiar behavior for all too many of us. But this obsession is our choice. We can stop at any moment. We can decide to let go of a situation that we can't control, turn it over to God, and be free to look ahead at the possibilities for happiness.
Perhaps we can learn to accept a serious situation in our lives as a special opportunity for growth first of all, but even more an opportunity to let God work in our lives. We learn to trust by giving over our dilemmas to God for solutions. With patience, we will see the right outcomes, and we will more easily turn to God the next time.
Crisis will lessen in number and in gravity in direct proportion to the partnership we develop with God. The stronger our dependence on God, for all answers and all directions, the greater will our comfort be in all situations.
Serenity is the gift promised when we let God handle our lives. No crisis need worry us. The solution is only a prayer away.
