Today has been a beautiful sunny day with clear blue skies. Quite a contrast to what the weather forecasters are telling us will be happening tomorrow. In fact, we are under a "Winter Storm Warning" with the prospect of snow accumulation of 4 to 8 inches possible. That's pretty unusual for Mississippi! So we've been getting things ready. Since we heat our house with a big Ashley wood heater, Benny has already been cutting wood for the winter for a few months. He has a huge stack of wood in front of the house.
But in preparation for the "Big Event", he filled up the big wood ring on the front porch so that we'd have dry wood not covered by the snow.
And the big woodbox we've had in our living room close to thirty years (can you believe that?? lol) is brimming over with good seasoned oak wood cut from our farm. So, Lord willing, we will stay nice and warm if and when the snow comes.
I was thinking that it's good to be prepared for tomorrow physically. But how much more important it is for us to be prepared for tomorrow spiritually. The most important thing we need for preparedness in our spirit is salvation. Without knowing without a doubt we're saved, we have no hope of tomorrow. Romans 6:23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
After a person is saved, then something else he can do to prepare for tomorrow (the future) is to read the Bible to find out what God's will is for his life. Psalm 119:11Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
When we put our trust in God, then we are completely prepared for tomorrow. Period. Proverbs 30:5Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
May God bless you...tomorrow and every day!
