Where is the CRISIS-CENTER? The Crisis Center is not so much a place, as it is a “Person.” Sure the Crisis Center, for a City, or Township….might be located in the Town Hall, or City Hall. Or, if it’s a state-wide crisis; or it might be located in the State National Guard Facility, etc. But, those are just places…a physical address; be it the backroom of a local industry, or the Pentagon. They’re all just “places” that people go to “handle the crisis.”
Without getting into the definition of CRISIS…so much; in a loose way… it’s the place where people go to “solve-serious-problems.” If it’s a tornado, then the various governmental Crisis Centers will do. If it’s a serious issue at work….then “it,” the Crisis Center might be in the Human Resource Department, or the Manager’s, or Presidents Office. It would be where the “top-dog” is located; the place where “big-decisions” are made.
Again, those are just places…but, the bigger question is: Who is in charge of the CRISIS? If it’s the Plant Manager, or the City Manager, or the Governor…then, those are PEOPLE…. Not, so much….PLACES. These are people who have; not just the AUTHORITY, but the HEART, to manage the CRISIS. They are the DECISION makers.
Have you ever heard of a SPI RITUAL CRISIS? Well, people have them all the time…. every day; even sometimes…several times each day. It could be a serious FIRE in the PLANT warehouse; or a TORNADO, or a family member ….just had a HEART-ATTACK. Or, even worse… your spouse just left you for a “younger-version” of yourself. Maybe even, a SERIOUS auto accident. Aside from the particular “medical” issues involve; ambulance and doctor, etc., there could be, and very like is….. A need for a CRISIS Manager.
It could be your local minister, a marriage counselor, or the school guidance counselor. Someone, who is trained, or responsible for handling CRISIS…so, you see, “I’m referring” to PEOPLE…. Not places. Given the opportunity for having INPUT into such an important PERSON to be responsible for the CRISIS, is very important, and one should be choses WISELY.
Sometimes, even, the CRISIS Manager is not chosen; he maybe be elected; or appointed, or more likely…just your spouse. It would be someone that can be “relied” on to do the Crisis Management. The Crisis Manager may be the OWNER of the Company. Or, it could be your local Minister; or even….the Good Lord, God Almighty, Jesus Christ. To whomever this person might be…. Is the place where we take the “crisis?”
The Crisis Manager will “fix” the problem. When we “turn the CRISIS over to God…. The Big Boss in Heaven, then think no-more about it, because God will fix the problem. We are fortunate to have God to turn to, when CRISIS arise.
God was there for the Apostles, there for the Children of Egypt, or most common these days, is the UNDERGROUND….The guy who runs the show… the Big Boss….God the Father.
Proverbs 3: 5-6 tells us: Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Psalm 34:17-20 – When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken. And finally, Isaiah 41:10 – ‘Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
