When a crisis comes into our lives we feel disconnected from others. We feel that no one understands what we are going through. Maybe we even feel that no one cares. There is no one to talk to. There is just no one to share our pain and help to carry the burden. We are disconnected.
If we are not careful we can feel disconnected from God in a time of crisis. We can feel isolated and alone. We can feel that God doesn’t care or doesn’t want to hear about our crisis. That happened here in America just a few years ago.
It was Tuesday, September 11, 2001; this was the day that devastated the United States of America. Our country was brutally attacked as terrorist flew two planes into the World Trade Centers. One Plane was flown into the Pentagon.
People begin to ask the question, “Where is God in this crisis?” We can all remember that dreadful day. One of the newscasters summed it up at the end of that sad Tuesday when he said, “The foundations of America have been shaken.”
There are times in our Christian life that we feel that the very foundation of our faith is being shaken. The foundation that gives us a sense of security, the foundation of our spiritual freedom, the foundation of our families and the foundation of our very existence are often shaken by a crisis the hits us when we least expect it.
