Where Does It Hurt?
“If it bleeds, it leads” has long been a newsroom axiom. Have younoticed that crises seem to be a growth market now on every continent?
“Crisis” was originally used to describe a turning point in one’smedical condition. In the early 1600’s it came to mean “a decisivepoint.” Crises demand difficult decisions lest things go from bad toworse.
It’s said by those who study mental and emotional health that mostof us are facing crises of varying degrees all the time. Can youidentify two or three crises that you’re currently facing? Do you knowhow to resolve them? When would be the best time to begin doing so?
This may sound far too simplistic, but hundreds of millions ofpeople in crisis have found it to be true. Simon Peter, one of JesusChrist’s twelve mentees, advises, “Give all your worries and cares toGod for He cares about what happens to you.”
Isn’t it worth a try?
