Well now, if I could remember this everyday I'd have it made!
to have a crisis and act upon it is one thing. To dwell in perpetual crisis is another - Barbara Girzzuti 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 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 furn to God the next time.
Crises will lessen in number and in gravity in direct proportion to the partnership we develop with Him. The stronger our dependence on His power, 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.
I will take action against every crisis confronting me - I will turn to God. Each crisis is an invitation to serenity.
