Life has storms, full stop. Storms can be health challenges, financial mishaps, relational pitfalls, unexpected crisis & lots more. As much as I’d like to storm-proof my life, this doesn’t seem to be a realistic option for me, despite my best efforts. So here are some pointers that are helping me & might be useful to you as well:
- Focus grasshopper – let’s keep our eyes on Jesus because there’s no storm that He cannot calm and disperse
- Watch the Clock – this too will pass because storms have an end no matter how long it seems
- Guard the Gates – a storm on the outside doesn’t mean that it has to come into your heart
- Eat your Spinach – storms are great opportunities to strengthen your faith; indeed, it seems to me that my faith doesn’t strengthen in serenity as well as it does under stress #selah
Feel free to pass this to your friends & family who might be in a storm & happy Monday to you!
