As the clouds hang low we brace ourselves together in anticipation of what is ahead. We must stop look and listen for the sound of the abundance of rain; it tells us the direction the wind is blowing and and from where the storm is coming. Although this might be just a metaphor, we have to look at it closely in light of our present situation. In a storm we bond together,lay low and wait until the turbulence is past before emerging from seclusion.
This is a storm of unprecedented proportion the magnitude of which will change our world and our lives forever. When the Bible says nation will be against nation and kingdom against kingdom we sometimes look at it with skepticism but the truth is on us and we have to prepare for what is ahead. Everything is pointing to one direction, if you look very closely it will cause you to stop a second and ask yourself some very serious question. What is it going to be? Are we prepared for the next wave? This is serious and if we are not ready for it, we will be left behind! So I say to you, the storm is coming be prepared for the road ahead.
The cases has risen and everyone is in a state of confusion. This is being augmented by the lack of leadership at the helm. There are too much mixed messages, added to this, the lack of preparedness and basic supplies for health professionals to operate comfortable. It’s time we look away from those who are driving this train; look for other ways forward. We must unite as one if we are going to succeed in overcoming this pandemic. Let us not get comfortable, the urgency is upon us to act as individuals to protect our selves. How did we arrived here? This question needs an answer!
It is very important how we move forward if we are going to survived and overcome this pandemic. Although it might seems we had been blindsided, there is no doubt things could have been better if urgency was given to the call for action. Hoping and wishing was not the thing to do. Looking at everything as a hoax will not cause things to go away. The reality is, we have to stop, look and listen; pay attention to the signs and the calls for action. Thing could have been better had there been leaders with foresight, one who cares and understands the plight of a nation and not individualism.
We have been overwhelmed. Cities, state and counties are crying out in distress. Who do we look to for help? However, in the midst of pain and confusions there is help but it is only available if you accept it. Our help comes from the Lord maker of heaven and earth. The time is now, look to Him for your help. Now is not the time for sarcastic behavior. However if you have a better idea I would like to hear about it; maybe then we could all try it but until them; “The Lord is your light and salvation; a very present help in times of trouble.” We are in trouble, the earth is crying out for help and we are powerless to do anything about it. Lord have mercy!
There is good news! In the midst of a storm there is always a calm a silver lining and there is a light at the end of the tunnel! The eye might be passing but make no mistake and don’t be caught off guard. In the eye there is calm and quietness. The back of the storm is sometimes more dangerous. However, when the storm is passed the calm is great and it brings relief and refreshments. Rebuilding will not be easy but where there is a will there will be a way. Don’t give up hope!
It is time to refocused and for repentance! We should not take this lightly. The world has never seen anything like this before. This is just the start of what is to come. The signs of the times are everywhere. Prepare for the turbulence, this is just the precursor. Those who are ready and prepared will make it through. There’s help even in the midst of the storm!
