devastating impact on the eastern part of the United States this week.
In all probability, homes will be destroyed, lives will be disrupted,
businesses will be devastated, and as we've seen already with this storm,
there is the potential that people will die.
On my drive in this morning I was thinking about this storm and comparing it
to the storms of life.
No doubt about it. Each one of us will have a storm in life that must be
endured. That's right, difficulty affects more than 50 million. Storms,
sometimes hurricane size storms, will impact the hearts of 100% of the
Every time I turn around I learn of a new challenge that one is having to
endure--from job loss to the loss of one's well-being to the loss of a loved
one. All of these are storms and sooner or later, we'll all go through one.
So, what's the solution? I believe we have to look in, look out, and look
Learn to look in. See yourself as you really are. You are an individual of
value, and importance to God. I'm impressed with Scripture like Romans 16
and Philemon in which God references individuals by name. Why? Because they
are important to Him? Guess what--so are you!
Learn to look out. When you're going through that storm, there are folks
that want to help. I think one of the frustrating things about church work
is the fact that sometimes folks struggle and no one knows. Friends, you
don't have to struggle alone. People do care, and people do want to share
your burden. After all, that's the law of Christ (Gal. 6:2).
Learn to look up. Yes, look up to God. the ultimate help in the storms of
life is God. God is our F.E.M.A. He is our Friend who will not let us down.
He is our Encourager, the One who has our back. He is our Master, leading us
to victory in the end. He is the Anchor of our soul, keeping us secure in
the Faith if we let Him.
All those in Sandy's path have our prayers. To those in the path of personal
storms, we remember you as well.
Have a great day!
