Don't Waste Your Crisis - Dr. Carolyn D. Showell, Sunday Sermon (November-28-2021). Scripture: Genesis 1:28, 2:8 (KJV) We were blessed from the beginning, but that doesn't mean our lives are exempt from a crisis. Sometimes, God will evolve you through a storm. It's an opportunity to lean into Him and ask who it is you need to become. Don't resist the hour of crisis, for through it lies your transformation. Discover who you are by refusing to stand still in defeat. Starting this week, praise God that it's all working together for your good!

Daily Devotional (February-21-2022) Real Friends Show Up in a Crisis
“A friend should treat a troubled person kindly, even if he abandons the fear of the Almighty.” - Job 6:14 (GW)
Do you know the difference between a friend and an acquaintance? A real friend shows up when you’re in a crisis. When everybody else walks out, real friends walk into your life.
If you’re not sure who your real friends are, wait until your next crisis. Your acquaintances may disappear pretty quickly. But your real friends will keep showing up no matter what.
Did you know the Bible says that, even when people turn their backs on God, they still deserve to have friends? Job 6:14 says, “A friend should treat a troubled person kindly, even if he abandons the fear of the Almighty” (GW).
The first thing everybody needs in a crisis is other people. You need a support group—mature Christian brothers and sisters who will love you, care for you, comfort you, encourage you, support you, meet your needs, and counsel you. That kind of person will gently steer you back to Jesus when life’s difficulties tempt you to abandon your faith.
That’s why I never stop talking about the importance of having close Christian friends you can count on. They might be a small group from your church or a few friends you study the Bible with or pray with regularly.
Build a safety network in your life so, when the rogue winds come, you have genuine friends who will be there for you. When a crisis happens, these are the first people you’ll turn to.
Maybe you’re thinking, “But wait a minute! Don’t you need to pray first in a crisis rather than turn to other people?” Well, yes, that’s great if you can. But the truth is that in a crisis you’re often in so much stress and shock that you don’t even know what to pray. It’s at that point that you need other people praying for you.
You need your real friends to say, “We’ll pray for you. We’ll believe for you. We’ll be there for you. No matter what.”
Choose to be a true friend to your Christian brothers and sisters in crisis today. And when you go through hard times, you’ll find yourself held up by those same people.

Matt Sorger (April-25-2020) Sermon: How to Keep Your Peace and Joy Amidst the Covid Crisis - Part 3. In the midst of a global storm called COVID-19, there is a way to maintain and live in God’s supernatural peace and joy. The storms of life come, but we need to know that Jesus is in the boat with us. This makes all the difference. I also teach keys to entering into God’s rest. You don’t need to live stressed out and overwhelmed by things out of your control.
