Navigating Crisis with Faith, Not Frustration
Life inevitably brings times of extreme stress that test our coping capacities - deaths of loved ones, job losses, illnesses, natural disasters, and more. In the midst of crisis and grief, it's understandable to feel overwhelmed and frustrated. However, ditching religious practices in anger is an unhealthy response that will leave you emptier.
It's easy during trials to point your frustration toward God. You may be tempted to stop praying, reading scripture or attending services, thinking, "What's the point?" But turning away from divine comfort and meaning will only deepen the hole inside you.
Rather than abandoning faith in adversity, sincerely seek God's presence instead. Open your heart in prayer, even if it's just to express your confusion, sorrow and pain. Read uplifting scriptures that bring you solace. Turn trials into opportunities to discover God's love on a deeper level.
When you sincerely seek spiritual connection during crisis, you invite divine peace into your pain. God does not always take struggles away, but the comfort of His presence can strengthen you to endure. Have faith that you will emerge from trials with new depths of wisdom, compassion and trust.
While falling away from religious practices may temporarily alleviate frustration, it leaves a vacant space that only God can fill. Use adversity as a catalyst to point yourself toward, not away from, divine love and meaning. With faith as your anchor, you'll weather life's storms with grace.
