Weathering the Storm

It’s been a long time since we really had a good snowfall and the accumulation we had this past week changed up my schedule on Sunday. First, I had to set the alarm earlier to find out if Rock Canyon High School would be closed . . . if so, then church would be canceled and then the website and voice mail would need to be changed to let folks know the plan. Luckily no change or cancellation and we had a great service. The driveway and sidewalks had to be shoveled (thanks, Dear!). In order to arrive on time I needed to leave earlier. Driving was slower and I was about the only one out which made me wonder “did I miss something on the news?” The roads were terrible and I worried about my safety. Once I arrived I settled in safe and warm inside only to come out to find that my car was thickly covered in snow that had to be scraped off before I could make the slow trek back home. The weather was even worse on the drive home it was blowing so hard I could barely see.

When you have obstacles and circumstances that change up your life how do you handle them? Do you set your alarm earlier to spend more time in prayer or the Bible so you can be better prepared? What do you need to shovel away to make your journey smoother? And then when you think all is safe how do you react when you’ve got to turn around and again remove what you had just gotten rid of? And then there’s the ditch.

You’ve got to learn to drive differently when the storms of life appear. Check out the best driver's manual around – the Bible – and find out what it takes to weather the storm. You’ll be better prepared to keep from sliding and if you do run into the ditch you might be spinning your wheels for while but you’ll find the traction necessary to get you pulled out and back on the road.

Safe travels,
