From Crisis to Opportunity

From Crisis to Opportunity

Are you aware that every crisis is an opportunity? You are the one to decide your attitude as you move through a difficult situation. The Apostle Paul says, “Making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:16). Yes, we are to make the most of every opportunity. How do we do that? I believe it is by seeing into every situation the opportunity for growth that is there. What is the opportunity to trust God more? How can we grow in our awareness of His love for us, or possibly serving others? Practice today seeing every circumstance as an opportunity to have a positive attitude.
