Response to Crisis
My journey this week.
We all want everything to be excellent and as expected all the time. The reality of life is that we face crises in our life. Many times we do not anticipate or expect it. It could be something in our own life, family, or community. What is our first or default response? I am convinced that if prayer is our first response, we can face and overcome crises better. We often use prayer as the last resort when we have tried everything else. One weapon God has given to his people, which is underutilized, is the power and effectiveness of corporate prayer. I have experienced that unified cooperative prayer changes the situation and is very effective. Do not be shy to share your requests with people who can intercede for you. You will experience how effective it is to share our burdens, and others pray for you.
Thank you for your continued prayers for my complete recovery. This week’s test results were stable. Many things happened this week, and I am returning to work full-time next week. I will be balancing my time not to make it stressful. One thing I am going to figure out is how I will be able to do everything else I have been doing for the last few months, along with the increased work hours. I can do all things through Jesus Christ, who gives me strength.
