OUT OF THE BLUE: CONFRONTING UNEXPECTED CHALLENGES IN LIFE

OUT OF THE BLUE: CONFRONTING UNEXPECTED CHALLENGES IN LIFE

 

Even with all of the planning in the world, the unpredictable, the unforeseen, and the surprising frequently blindside us. In those situations, each of us finds ourself thinking, “This isn’t what I was planning” or “This isn’t how life should be.”

That is the Christmas story in short. With the exception of figures like the wise men, Simeon, and Anna, everyone else in the Christmas story seems to be caught off guard, finding their lives turned upside down. How they reacted in their situations shows us how we might react in our own lives.
