During my first week as a school teacher, I was introduced to many different protocols that helped to create a healthy and safe learning environment for my students. One of those was explained in a handout titled “Rainy Day Procedures.”
If inclement weather was in the forecast, we had a precise plan for how to re-direct our day. I knew how to respond to the storm — there was no uncertainty about how to proceed. The plan brought calm and confidence.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about how I need to have a similar plan for the storms of life. Weather is subject to change, so in the VLOG below, I share some thoughts on how to not be caught unawares by sudden downpour.
…examine all things; hold fast to what is good.
Stay away from every form of evil.
I Thessalonians 5:21-22, NET
