Today’s Pressure Cooker

Submitted by James Higginbotham on November 30, 2009 – 4:13 amNo Comment

Recently, I’ve noticed that several friends of mine have been in a “pressure cooker” – a time of difficult circumstances. Some are dealing with health issues, some are dealing with the death of a loved one, while others are dealing with divorce. No matter what it is, they all seem to be struggling in one way or another.

Through all of the difficult circumstances, they are being broken and tested. Some have done well, maturing in the Lord and continuing to minister to those around them while they are being ministered to themselves. Others are not handling it so well, allowing themselves to be used to hurt and sometimes destroy those around them.

Are you seeing this around those you care about? How are they handling it? How are you handling it?

Right now may be a time to be in a “pressure cooker” season of your life. Are you prepared? Are you ready to deal with difficult circumstances by being broken and tested?

Are you prepared to minister to others that are experiencing difficulties, perhaps even giving some of your time to disciple them in an effort to help them grow in the Lord?
