Are You Prepared?

On yesterday there was a significant flight delay due to the weather. The airport I was flying into had been closed due to the weather.  As a result, when I did arrive, it was within 15 minutes of my connecting flight. I was at the B gate but had to get to the E gate. The only way to get there was to run.

The moral of the story is we have to be prepared for the unexpected in life. Over the past couple of years I have been training my body. I've learned to workout, to eat better, and to take care of myself. As I had to make the mad dash across the airport, I could only do it because I had been being prepared in the off season to use the strength and ability in the in season.

The season is coming where we will have to be stronger,  better and wiser to handle what God has for us.  The only way we will be able to handle it and survive is by being prepared.  We must discern what skills, abilities and structures we need to begin developing and putting into place now for us to be prepared for our later. Are you prepared?
