Obviously, crisis come in all kinds, shapes and forms - - and within each of those there is the INTENSITY of the situation. Two things I tell individuals regarding the crisis that they are in. (1) It is not as bad as it seems (to which some say, "yell, tell me! It is.") and (2) God has always made something beautiful out of every situation.
This is where our faith comes in. To be able to let go the rope of our control and to fall into the arms of a loving Heavenly Father who cares about every detail of our life. It boils down to looking at the crisis from with out or from within. It is like God looking "down" and our looking "across" There is a different perspective. Noah, for example thought it no doubt quite a crisis. Even before and through the ordeal. But at the end God put his rainbow.
Now, I mentioned above that there are two ways of looking at a crisis. We look at a rainbow and we see an arch. BUT those in an airplane when looking at the same rainbow see a circle. God does see different for us and God obviously can see "over the fence" of your crisis. That is where trust comes in. Trust - believe - have faith and go through it with God. You are not alone.
Repeating one of the above scriptures: "Then they (your name____) cried out to the Lord in their (your name _____) trouble (crisis) and He delivered them (your name ____) from their (your name ____) distress."May God's peace be yours, my friend.
