How to be Better, Not Bitter in the Midst of a Crisis!

1 Samuel 30:6 – And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.

2012 was a challenging year for many Christians and 2013 looks to be the same.  We see many circumstances and situations taking place in our nation that just don’t seem to make sense.  From school shootings to natural disasters and political battles, it could have been a pretty disappointing year depending on your outlook.

If you aren’t struggling right now, praise God!  My prayer would be that the Lord continues to bless and keep you and prepare you for the time when suffering comes.  I say that because the Word of God is very clear that His people WILL have to deal with difficult circumstances and situations, so we all need to be prepared.
