A few days ago one of my kids playfully asked me if I had ever had a midlife crisis. I responded, "I'm having one now." The reality is, however, that this is nothing of the sort.
The whole idea of the "midlife crisis" is simply a way of our society trying to explain away self-centered people (usually men) who run away from their responsibilities to pursue pleasure of various sorts. It's not any kind of legitimate mental problem; rather, it's selfishness.
My hope is that my current situation is nothing like what I've described above. I can't control my age or my balding. I'm working on the weight - inconsistently. As for the job, I resigned for reasons of conviction. I've explained that numerous times on this blog (such as here).
So is it a crisis? No. God is in control and will provide.
I'm not running away from my family or moving to Hawaii. Rather, I'm trying to serve God by living church life as we see it described in the bible.
My not being employed would be a crisis if God did not exist, was not loving, was not omnipotent, or was not faithful. He is all of these.
It's no crisis.
