Storm is coming, are you prepared?

Pacific Gas and Electric has notified 29 counties that they may be turning off the electricity for one to three days. It has been reported high winds are coming and could cause powerlines to fall. Last night on the news people were lined up at ATMs, service stations and grocery stores to be prepared. Just the thought of being without electricity has also caused me anxiety. I can’t curl my hair, use my electric toothbrush, make coffee, watch the news on TV, read my Bible on my iPad or get my car out of the garage. That is how my morning started. Then I thought, what is wrong with this picture. I am way too dependent on things of this world. How would I react if I was told, God is taking a vacation and he wasn’t going to be around for a few days. The Sun wouldn’t rise, the birds wouldn’t sing, but more importantly, I wouldn’t be able to take a breath without God. God gives us life and provides our needs He gives us the strength to face even small inconveniences of life. The real question is the Lord is coming, are you prepared? 🙏

So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. Matthew 24:44
