Where do you feel like you may be experiencing a personal crisis? Struggles with your marriage, health, work or friendships? Challenges are universal, but they serve as powerful learning opportunities. As Holly Wagner calls them in this video, they are just “part of the curriculum of life.” Sharing insights from her newest book, “Find Your Brave,” this video focuses on the five things not to do in a personal crisis.
Holly Wagner is a powerful speaker, author and visionary. Whether she is pastoring at her church Oasis LA, speaking at her She Rises conference or sharing wisdom in her books, she always finds a way to direct you back to God’s words of hope.
Holly urges you not to take your personal crisis personally or isolate yourself. It is human nature to want to blame yourself when a struggle arises, especially if you are not surrounding yourself with people who can support you. Don’t isolate yourself because your loved ones can help you avoid blaming yourself. As Holly says, “we were never designed to get through life by ourselves.”
Surrounding yourself with encouragers who can help you through your storms in life is key. However, you also have a responsibility to encourage others as well. Holly reminds us to root ourselves in God’s Word. She recalls that in Proverbs 5, the Bible teaches that there is wisdom that comes from actual and costly experience. Acquiring that wisdom may be painful, but once you have learned it, share it.
