It's almost half way through this month and I find myself once again assessing my situation and checking on how I'm doing with this months challenges. We can't help what happens to us in life, we go through different times in our lives, crisis happen, and we choose to allow those crisis to change us or cause us to make changes, or we find our strength(s) and adjust to push through those crisis becoming a stronger individual and developing a better relationship with those we have in our lives along with our character.
So, when you're going through this month's challenges and you're faced with crisis in your life. Before you panic, before you lose control, take a step back, breath, take a little time to seek out the truth in your life, whether that be your relationship with God, a friend that helps you to focus, or whatever strength you have chosen to help you focus again and take time to bring yourself back down to reality before you make your choice(s). Don't change out of the effect of that crisis, change adjust yourself to pass through that crisis and come out with the crisis being a learning experience or a chance to make you a stronger individual.
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. II Corinthians 4:8-9
