You see it in the news everyday. Disaster does strike albeit not everyone suffers through an issue, but if you think you or your family is in harms way, then you need to think about not what if, but when if….
It’s Sunday…..so here is a story in “of the story..” style:
I recently read a story about a man needing to move some cattle he owned. He needed to move those cows to the opposite end of a pasture to let them start grazing on a new section of grassland. And, this meant that the cows had to cross a waterway. A few calves went first; leaping splashing, tails lifted up with excitement. The more mature ones went through the waterway at the shallow end, it was a well-used crossing…some with more drama and others with less; but they moved along making good headway…it was a show to see!
The last cow however, a skinny one, did fairly well until she got to the opposite side. As she began climbing the bank, she FELL. There she was, with her back feet in the water and her front feet on the slick slope. She made several valiant attempts to go up the slope but she was too weak. NOW WHAT?
Would that little calf slide back down into the water and drown? The owner of the cows thought to himself that there was no way he was strong enough that he could help that little Bessie keep her head out of the water until help could come; cow heads are heavy, especially when attached to a cow. So the cow and that man were both stuck. What a sight!
The moral OF THE STORY? If you’re a Christian, we do not practice sin. But if we stumble, God helps us back up.
Proverbs 24:16 says, “For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again:….”
Again, Psalm 37:24 states, “Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.”
Because of God, we can say,“Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.” (Micah 7:8)
But for some, for all really, we need to make a certain “FALL,” and we must fall hard. We need to fall on Jesus! “And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken:…….” If we FALL on Him, and let our self-will be broken, we can be assured that He will lift us up to walk in newness of life.
Wondering about that skinny cow? She got out. She trusted the man and gave it her all, all the while, the man held up her head to keep her from drowning. It’s a true story by the way. 😉
2 Peter 1:10
“Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:………”
Have a great and peaceful Sunday. 🙂
THE FOLLOWING IS WHY PEOPLE PREP..
Videos are embedded in the links. Ya know…there were people watching/ and filming this event from a place of safety…and were prepared to bolt! Bug out! This is just one reason that we need to have a prepped place (in the event) of a disaster…bug out or bug in should be a priority when ANY storm is in your area. With the exception of an unexpected (and there are signs for those too) earthquake you need to get you and your family ready for what you think is the impossible, won’t happen here scenario. Amen or oh me???

Happy Sunday to everyone. Once in while (on a Sunday) you can find encouraging tidbits of info (always use discernment) that can change our course, or enlighten our path towards a better direction or, ending up skipping over some would-be bad obstacles and freeing us up from an otherwise pit or wrong place. I found such info (knew this, maybe you did too) here at this link (below). Be blessed! You are carrying around someone’s miracle today……….be there. –Moraldiplomat
“……………..we are finite. We learn slowly, in bits and pieces, here a little and there a little. We also easily forget things we once knew. And we are sinful. Our unbelief easily colors our thinking, even when we are thinking about God’s truth. In short, our view of the world will never exactly be God’s … not now, and not even in eternity. We will never have his omniscience and infinite wisdom. And yet we must learn………………
……………Above all, it’s important to understand that Paul found no common ground with Greek philosophy here. Even more, everything Paul said about God was entirely at odds with the with the philosophers’ basic assumptions. And yet Paul could still point to the Stoic poets and find support in their words, if not in their underlying theology.
For even the Greek poets knew that idols were “foundational garbage” and that men were, in some sense … “the offspring of God.” Above all, Paul’s summary of theology was sufficient to draw a sharp contrast between his understanding of the world and that of the pagan philosophers. He created a sufficient base for a moral and intellectual conversation about repentance………….”
