[CF Devotionals] 2017-02-07 - May That Be the Greatest Crisis of Your Day

- - - - - - -

When my husband Richard was first training to be an Air Traffic Controller, a supervisor and friend of his had a favored saying for anything that didn't involve the collision of a plane full of souls. If something trivial occurred, he would say "may that be the greatest crisis of your day." Throughout the years, we have often found ourselves returning to that saying, and I believe it's a Biblical attitude, as well.

After my Bladder Cancer scare many years ago, we had an even stronger sense of priorities.As one would expect, after last year, our "lost year" due to Richard's Guillain-Barre Syndrome, we were again reminded of this. So what if the dishwasher were broken, a forgotten Diet Coke© had exploded in the freezer (Never mind who put it there!) or we were stuck in "parking lot" traffic for four hours? We are healthy and together, and "this too shall pass." There is no reason to be bent out of shape by a minor occurrence.

What is important to us should line up with what is important to God.

Isaiah 55:8-9 (MSG) “I don’t think the way you think.
The way you work isn’t the way I work.”
God’s Decree.

“For as the sky soars high above earth,
so the way I work surpasses the way you work,
and the way I think is beyond the way you think.
