We All Spend Moments at Rock Bottom


The other day I heard blogger and author Glennon Doyle Melton explain that the root meaning of the word crisis is ‘to sift.’  And like a child sifting through sand at the beach for seashells, during a crisis everything unnecessary falls away and you are left with the treasures.  All that you need can’t be taken from you.

I thought that was so powerful.  During a crisis, whether it’s about health, finances, relationships or something else, it can seem like the end of the world.  Like nothing is right and life will never be the same again.
