When trouble comes I am so prone to look to myself or to others for answers. The end of that journey is often frustration and anger. My mentor in Hungary - a wise gentleman who had known suffering, Jenő Barátossy - often said to me, "When the unexpected or trouble come, immediately look for God."
Jenő's experience with trouble and persecution in World War II and then in communist Hungary was frequent, yet he walked with confidence knowing that God was aware and working, much like the Psalmist who said,
...call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me." Psalm 50:15 NIV
When trouble comes - and it will - turn to Jesus! He is aware and working!
Join me in looking for the Lord the minute our plans go awry.
