Holding Firm in Crisis

There are times in all of our lives when we will face crisis. During these times we are tempting to overreact, say and do things that throw us out of balance even more. During these times, slow down. Rest. Share your burdens with trusted friends. Scripture encourages us to bear one another’s burdens—implying that we are to share burdens with each other (Galatians 6:2). During tough times, do you reach out for support? Do you offer support to others? This will help you weather the storms that are sure to come our way.
