Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

facing a crisis?

Are you facing a crisis?  Do the trials of life seem to be mounting?  The struggle is real.  We are in a battle but our God is greater than our enemy.  There is no comparison.

What do you do when facing a crisis – trial – struggle?

Pray — which involves casting your cares on Jesus (1 Peter 4:6-7) and being still so you can listen (Psalm 46:10)

Read the Word – what does it have to say about your situation? If your decision goes against God’s word then rethink your decision. Disobedience will not get you the peace and joy you seek.

Seek godly counsel – when this step is intentionally ignored it often means the decision you are about to make may not be the right one. Godly counsel points you to Christ and can help remove the blinders that may be hindering you from seeing truth. (Proverbs 11:14)

Then having done these steps, submit to God – don’t be ruled by your emotions – recognize that while your feelings may be strong, they also need to be nailed to the cross. (Gal 5:24)

Romans 15:13 “Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Hope – joy – peace = fantastic!   And just what I need today!

Trusting God – He will see me through and you can count on Him too!

 

til next time
