A crisis has the power to catapult you into deeper communion with Christ. While it may temporarily paralyze you, it will eventually give way to realizing and appropriating greater spiritual truths and realities.
The stones you once kicked at … you will now build with.
The hurts you once harbored … you will now heal with.
The God you were resisting … you will now find rest in.
Encouraging and hopeful things are coming your way.
Be obedient and stay near the One who has His hold on you.
Everything you have been through, pushed through, and worked through has been for the betterment of your soul, mind, body, and spirit; a preparatory work for what is to be and who you are to be ... for others.
Refreshment, rejuvenation, and restoration are yours to give,
and as you have received so now you'll give.
This beautiful life of compassion is yours to live.
Embrace it with joy ...
 "It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving."
-Mother Teresa
