By Pastor Bill Stevenson
What do you do when your world falls apart? Most of us are totally unprepared for life changing events. Are you prepared for one or more of the following events?
- you are suddenly laid off at work?
- a loved one dies?
- you break off an engagement?
- spouse walks out the door?
- diagnosed terminal?
- an accident destroys all your plans?
- out of work & starving?
- a Nation in disarray & declining?
- economic collapse?
Few people are prepared for these kinds of life events. But for most of us, one or more will happen in our lifetime. These are scary thoughts, although some of us are partially prepared with stored food and goods, but there is far more to to life then food and water. The emotional toll is great and most of us will need help and support to get through these type events. Yes I know these are hard things to talk about and contemplate, but fore knowledge is far better than ignoring the inevitable possibilities.
Did you know there are actually two books in the Bible about how Jeremiah lived through and survived many of these experiences? Just hearing about these things can put life in perspective and help us prepare mind, body and soul. Join us this Sunday and next as we learn How to rebuild your world when it falls apart.
