Never saw this coming
School shootings. Terrorist attacks. And now this coronavirus. Lord have mercy!
Schools are closed, church is live-streamed and vacations are cancelled. Even if you’re confident that danger is far from you, personal change, challenges and crisis happen everyday. I’m not talking about inconveniences like toilet paper shortages or a long line at the post office. I’m talking about the shocking, heartbreaking, disturbing bombshells.
- The marriage is over.
- The job ends.
- The car’s wrecked.
- The money’s gone.
- The diagnoses is pronounced
…and your life is irrevocably changed or altered in a way you didn’t expect or deserve.
Just say NO!
When it happens, there are two immediate and visceral reactions.
The first is NO!
You don’t like it, you don’t want it, and you don’t agree with it.
When NO doesn’t turn into YES no matter how much you cry, beg, plead or pray, the next reaction is often WHY? Why me? Why now? Why ever?
It seems fair to ask why. But do you really want to know why or do you just long for the lost to be found, the broken to be fixed, for the stolen to be returned. Really … you just want your life back! Am I right?
