When written in Chinese, the word “crisis” is composed of two characters – one represents danger, and the other represents opportunity.
Remember…with every crisis in our lives, there is certainly danger, but there is also opportunity!
“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing” (James 1:2-4, NKJV).
“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you” (1 Pet. 5:6-7, NKJV).
