I lost my job, I lost a loved one, a storm destroyed my home, I got in a car wreck, I was diagnosed with a disease. Do any of these sound familiar? Sometimes life is like a Hurricane, one day your life is normal, the next severely impacted by life events. Just like how we must prepare for Hurricanes season, we must also prepare for Hurricanes in our life. God has provided us with the Bible as our disaster kit and so many additional tools to prepare us for these storms. Meditate on the word, develop a relationship with God through prayer, and seek out spiritual wisdom to become more resilient. Remember who controls the raging seas and is sovereign over this world.
Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of the distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for mankind. -Psalm 107:28-31
