Every Crisis An Opportunity

Here we are in the midst of a global pandemic and economic meltdown.  Beyond that, we all have our own personal crises.  To live is to experience crisis.  Sunday’s sermon will take a close look at how Jesus responded to crisis in his own life, offering us insight that can help us immeasurably.

    This sermon spoke to me today when I needed to hear it. I listen to all of Pastor Jeff’s sermons and have used some of his interpretations of scripture and events to help others through their unbelief and crises. What a blessing!

    The last month I have been feeling more depressed than usual. With everything going on in our country right now, I am really struggling. I don’t think I’m alone in this. This morning I sent an email to a group of friends who I have been very blessed to meet (another story). We normally share political information. One of the women lives in New Zealand, but has a dual citizenship with the US. She is appalled at the crises in her home country. We never really share our deep emotions with each other, nor do I push my faith in God on them, however, I do mention it periodically because it’s a large part of who I am.

    This morning, I wrote these words to them. “ We live in such a criminal, corrupt country. It’s hard to keep your chin up these days. I feel like I’m being suffocated with such negativity these days, that it’s almost impossible to be cheerful. The only thing that keeps me afloat is knowing that we have a Creator whose total substance is love. Even though we choose to hate, he continues to love us. That will never change.” After writing these words, I went to the Life Journey website to find a sermon that I could share with my agnostic nephew who does volunteer work with the Red Cross. He and I don’t communicate. I found this sermon and listened to it. It turns out, the words in this sermon were exactly what I needed to hear. I am he one who needs to reframe my mind to invite the positive thoughts to stay, and to kick out the, oh so many, negative thoughts. It needs to become a habit. What a blessing your church has been,virtually, during the last
    Two years we’ve been watching.

    Just wanted to thank your team! ❤️

      Thank you for your comment Cathy. It is indeed a difficult world, but we have a creator that is love. May God bless you with a depth of peace and joy as you focus on the positive and reframe your mind. And may the seeds you have planted with your friend and your nephew find fertile soil. Blessings
