This afternoon, a storm came through town. After several very hot and very calm days, suddenly the skies opened up and rain pour down. Not only rain came with the storms, wind did also. The radio said they weren’t tornadoes, they were micro-bursts. Whatever they were, they tore up quite a few trees.
A lot of people are deceived. They think they are prepared for the storms of life. They have deep roots and strong branches. They are strong and healthy. But then the storm hits. The storm will come to every man in its own way. When that happens, will you stand strong or will your inner weakness be revealed?
Think about your life. Are you ready for storms to hit? It may be it won’t be a complete uprooting of your life. It may be only a few branches will blow off, a few leaves will be lost.
