I Can’t Imagine: Living through Crisis without Christ

imageI have cried many tears today and had many scary moments. There was nothing that could have truly helped prepare me to see my husband, my wonderful Charlie become critical and struggling through his every breath. But no matter how scary, I knew the Lord was with me and would never leave me. It was His strength that carried me through and still is as he is still very sick. And it is the prayers of so many others that are lifting us up to The Lord that has meant so much as I know He has and is answering our prayers.

As difficult as today was, I cannot imagine facing it without the hope of Christ and without Him to depend on. And as horrible as that would be, the reality is that there are people everywhere, every single day doing just that. They are facing each and every crisis all alone because they do not know Christ.

Because of this reality, I am even more compelled to continue pressing on and sharing Christ with those around us. As we traveled to the hospital yesterday Charles said that it is when we truly are able to wrap our minds around the reality of hell that we are compelled to share with others what hope and life in Christ is all about.
It’s also about wrapping out minds around the understanding that there are people facing their every day crisis with no one or nothing to depend on but themselves. So much of myself and my own selfishness gets in the way of not sharing with others. but I want to remember today, this story, and how The Lord brought me through. I want to love others enough with a Christlike love that I will share Christ with those around me no matter what.

Maybe as you have read this post you have never had Christ to depend on and you do feel that you are living through all of your own crisis on your own. The wonderful news is that you don’t have to. Christ wants to know you and have a relationship with you. He wants to carry your burdens for you. As Jesus said in Matthew 11:28-30, “Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden light.” If you would like more information about having a relationship with Christ, please click here.
