On earth, there is a seismic risk of earthquakes. Earthquakes can shake the earth's foundation and cause faults, fissures and chasms. Life is also a seismic zone - it is an area where spiritual earthquakes may occur. We can have our spiritual foundation shaken which result in chasms between us and God. When this happens - we make a choice - to stand in the same place we were, fall into the abyss or cross over to the other side to become one with God again and move forward. Christians who deal with the devastating results of having their spiritual foundations shaken may or may not choose to become overcomers and cross over to the other side. But if they do become overcomers, they will have their faith and their relationship with God strengthened. A life without struggles is not life at all. It is our struggles and experiences which give us the opportunities to grow.
