STOP AND THINK – Crises [break] down old structures, shaking loose negative habits so that something new and better can take their place. (Susan Taylor, editor, writer, and journalist)

Taylor notes “In every crisis there is a message. Crises are nature’s way of forcing change.” Whether a particular calamity is the result of a natural disaster or of some life circumstance, it often produces careful evaluation and planning to handle it. The crisis, then, may result in a very positive and beneficial outcome.

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all (2 Corinthians 4:17).
