Things happen, sometimes they are good, sometimes they are bad… really bad. Take for instance Grant’s episode on his flight out of JFK when the birds flew into one of the engines on the plane he was on. Thankfully the pilots and the crew on that plane were prepared to handle such a problem, safely landing that plane.
If you are reading the news or watching the current events, it is hard to wonder when that one event will happen to bring down this house of cards or what will be the next bubble to burst that will put the economy into a tail spin.
The question still remains… Are we prepared enough?
What exactly should we be preparing for?
For me it is simple… I am a Christian and I would like to think that I have my soul prepared for the events that are written about in the Bible that very closely resemble the news of the day.
I would like to think that when faced with a hungry belly that I will be strong enough to lean on my faith in God to take care of my physical needs.
I would like to think that the people around me would come before my needs. That I will act with integrity when faced with these challenges.
For those who don’t believe what I believe, you need to ask yourself the same soul searching questions.
I have what I feel to be trusted news sources feed stories onto my Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/lifetosuccess, and people ask me why I post that often. Some of the stories are negative and some are positive, but I feel it is important to post these stories because the last thing that I want to happen is the people in my circle of influence to wake up one day and say, “What happened?”
We need to be aware of what is happening around us while we are preparing for what could be happening.
So what are you doing to prepare yourself?
Leave me your comments on this subject, I am quite curious.
