The book says,
What kind of crisis are you facing- financial, medical or health, spiritual, educational, or relationship?
Whatever it is, you can bet that others have faced similar situations. Life beats up on everyone from time to time. If you don't want to reach out to a trusted friend or professional, find hope, optimism, and perhaps a path out of your situation in the stories of others.
For example, if your spouse needs an organ transplant, read the stories of patients who have already been through that ordeal. Draw inspiration, relief, hope and a sense of renewal from your reading.
When asked many people will say that they find inspiration in reading the Bible. For others a Devotional Book or even a Book of uplifting quotes or poems can help in times of crisis. Look online for inspirational websites of information and ideas. The crisis may be the same but we each draw our own inspiration from many different areas.
Just For Today: I will read and share something uplifting.
Many of us who love an addict need to hear words of inspiration. Please share in comment your favorite book of inspiration and/or your favorite inspirational quote- whatever it is that you gain your inspiration from, I would love to hear others ideas. Thank you.
