Make a Plan
You can’t control the weather. You aren’t in charge of the economy. You can’t un-wreck the car. But you can map out a strategy. Remember, God is in this crisis. Ask Him to give you a plan, two or three steps you can take today.
Seek counsel from someone who’s faced a similar challenge. Ask friends to pray. Look for resources. Reach out to a support group. Make a plan!
You’d prefer a miracle? You’d rather see the bread multiplied or the stormy sea turned to glassy calm in a finger snap? God may do this. Then again, He may tell you, “I’m with you. And I can use this for good. Now, let’s make a plan.”
God’s sovereignty doesn’t negate our responsibility. Just the opposite. It empowers it. Trust God to do what you can’t. Obey God and do what you can! You’ll get through this.
