Warnings came from every quarter: the Mayor, the National Weather Service, TV meteorologists. Hurricane Irene would have far-reaching effects along the Eastern Seaboard.
Mandatory evacuations were announced, people cut short vacations, and almost everyone took precautions. While this storm didn't pack the punch of a Katrina, it brought a lot of rain and flooding.
Jesus admonished those who did not look at the signs of the times. The small indications, when put together, all spelled major trouble ahead. Are we so wrapped up in our daily lives that we ignore the signals all around us?
Taking steps to preserve life are not a sign of fear. They're a sign of wisdom. Make sure your life is grounded on the Rock, Christ Jesus. When He's your foundation, the wind and waves of trouble may assail you, but you'll stand firm in Him.
What are some of the lessons you've learned from going through the storms of life? Do you keep an eye on the state of our nation and pray about it?
