Pick Your Crisis

It is so predicatable.  Every Monday night at 8:55, my wife will say, "I HATE this show."  Of course, I'm talking about "24" -- which never comes to resolution.  

But really, isn't that more like life than a 30 minute show that has everything settled before the end.  Life is a constant stream of "issues."  Just about the time we get one of them hogtied -- another one comes along.  Sometimes the issues come in clumps -- which REALLY complicates life.  

But God made us amazingly resilient, didn't He?

Right now, Americans have been "clumped."  We have a lot of issues on our plates.  But I am convinced of the truth to the Chinese word for "crisis."  Translated, it means "opportunity."  And certainly, crisis brings opportunity -- especially to those of faith.  

What opportunities we have to BE Jesus!

Amen! To God be the glory that during perceived crisis our feet stand planted firmly on our Rock! May His people shine His light brighter than ever!
