The Aftermath

I don’t like inclement weather or heavy, disastrous bouts of rain, and right now we are in the middle of one of the worst seasons we’ll ever go through, hurricane season. I live in Alabama, and although we got a lot of rain, we were fortunate to have hurricane Ida bypass us, but for those in Mississippi and Louisiana who weren’t so fortunate, my heart completely goes out to you. It is so upsetting and disheartening looking at photos of the aftermath, and I’m always left wondering, “How do those individuals build again?” “Where do they even begin?” “At what point do you start to recover? Or do you ever?”

We can all attest to the fact, that we’ve encounter some pretty life-changing storms. While they might not have been as severe or deadly as hurricane Katrina or Irene, they hit hard, and you most definitely felt the impact. Nonetheless, regardless of the category, what you do during the aftermath is what’s important. Whether it take you days, months, or years to recover, it makes no difference, but starting over does. It’s not the end of the world, and certainly not the end of you. Whatever you’ve lost, God will give it back to you, plus more! Don’t obsess over what’s replaceable, because what He replaces, will be so better than that which is lost.

Until next time my NOTE takers!
