Life is not lived on the mountain top, nor is it lived in the valley of deep darkness. But when our world as we live it, falls apart, what should our response be?
First, in the rebuilding process we need to take inventory of our lives - where we are, where we’ve been and where we’re going. Taking inventory means that changes are needed!
What we have been doing is not working - if it had, there would be no need to change.
Second, in the rebuilding process we need to channel our energies toward one goal. The definition of anxiety is a person drawn in two different directions. When a person who is torn between KSU and KU - it results in anxiety!
In the rebuilding process we need to move in one direction and stay with it.
Finally, in the rebuilding process difficult times are meant to point us to a greater resource other than ourselves. Jesus Christ is that resource from which we may draw from. Consider the words of Christ Himself: “...I am the light of the world; he who follows Me shall not walk in the darkness, but shall have the light of life.” (John 8:12).
Jesus Christ can rebuild our lives if we let him!
