I don’t know what harsh reality you are facing today. Maybe it’s the loss of a job, the illness of a loved one, the disillusionment from shattered dreams, or struggling with depression.
We all struggle with accepting our lot in life. Sometimes we feel that our share of pain, disappointments, and setbacks is just too much to endure.
Are we keeping the faith in times of crisis? How can we build up our faith and be prepared when the crisis hits?
With this unprecedented pandemic, we need more than ever the art of disciplining our minds in difficult times. Thoughts have consequences. They affect our mental and emotional health. Not only our current thoughts but also our belief systems play a crucial role in our well-being and stability. When the crisis hit, it exposes and challenges our beliefs. Is our house built on sand or on a Rock?
What is the role of struggle and suffering in human life? How often do we pray that God saves us from a particular struggle and suffering only to find out that we go exactly through this what we want to avoid? The doctor tells you bad news about your chances to have a child. Your father’s health is deteriorating. You lost a loved one unexpectedly.
