Yesterday there was a major storm impacting metro Atlanta. Well I guess when you look at it, it may have not been so much about the snow and ice of the storm as it was the chaos of vehicles everywhere on the roads. Fortunately, I was able to get home in 30 minutes time. THANK YOU JESUS!
I've been trying to think of what to write for my blog entry and I figured this would be worth mentioning. During the course of this chaos, I've thought about what I feel could've and should've been done. But ultimately, the fact is the past cannot be undone. We can only move forward, learn from human error, recognize that which is beyond us and ask God to help us make wise decisions in the process.
At some point, the storm will be over. As I'm writing this, the snow has stopped and many people have made it safely to their homes. BUT there are so many others who have not and a number of the roads are still very icy. Therefore, this storm is still in operation.
One thing I hope we'll gain from this experience is a larger capacity to face tough times. And also while this storm was uncomfortable and likely sped up many heart beats, I don't believe people found it to be insurmountable. I don't know what all will happen over the course of my life, but I doubt this is the biggest trial that our world will face. I pray that we will weather the storms with full confidence! May we overcome our trials safely and as winners!
We are fully capable of overcoming when Christ lives within us! So whether you experience a nice sunny ride to your home or if you get stuck in traffic for 12 hours with wheels that won't take you forward and NO food in sight..you are more than equipped to overcome! Even if you have to pee on yourself (yes, I really did say that), you can get through this!
Through good and bad, remember life's storms are only for a moment. Better is upon the horizon.
