A Caregiving Comfort: Hold

Denise
Sometimes it's a medical crisis. You rush your caree to the ER, bracing yourself for a long wait and perhaps news you don't want.

Sometimes, it's a faith crisis. You lose touch with your faith, your belief that all will be okay, that help will arrive to help you. During a crisis in faith, you lose your hold which means you can't brace for impact.

Which crisis feels worse?

When it's a crisis in faith, you lose your step, your focus, your purpose. Interestingly enough, the medical crisis brings your steps, your focus, your purpose. You know you need to ask, advocate, act to get to better.

Our personal crisis of faith can leave us adrift. How do we tackle a problem we can't feel or hear or touch? What can we hold?

So we feel all alone. We can't feel support, we can't see help, we can't find the way to better.

A crisis in faith means you have run into too much struggle causing too much self-doubt. And that's not fair. The focus on unfair has clouded your view of faith. So, feel and then release what's unfair so you can hold onto what's possible. Because of you, anything is possible.

A crisis is temporary. You, with all your wisdom, your good work, your hard work, your kindness, your compassion, your resilience, are permanent.
