Thriving In A Crisis

Do you like this story?

‘If you fall to pieces in a crisis, there wasn’t much to you in the first place.’ Proverbs 24:10

We all look good when things are going our way. But what happens when ‘the wheels fall off’?

I was pulled aside yesterday by one of my clients, and he shared with me as to what was happening in the life of his family at the moment. For six weeks his wife had been in hospital for treatment of cancer of the oesophagus. Unable to swallow, she has been fed intravenously for weeks. As a result he has had to turn away work and has had one of his other daughters assisting him in the office.

As I believe in the power of prayer, I offered to have my staff and I to pray for her complete recovery, for which he was thankful to receive.

He shared that he and his wife also believed in the power of prayer and that many of his relatives didn’t. He went on to say how he couldn’t understand how people could ever live without faith.

I responded, ‘It would be like driving a 6 cylinder car on only 4 cylinders’ to which he agreed.

Here was a man and his wife who I would say are thriving in a crisis, and I was challenged to never forget how grateful I should be for every day of good health that I experience.

My wife and I paused for a few moments this morning before I headed off to work and prayed a prayer of faith for his wife. We both know, having faced many a crisis throughout our years, that prayer to a loving God is not a waste of time or breath. He hears our faith-filled prayers and answers them. Not always in the way we think they should come, but always with our best interests at heart.

May I encourage you to approach every crisis with the mindset and the heart-set that in it you will learn, you will grow and you will thrive.
