Here in East Texas the first major winter storm is predicted for the next 24 hours.
Winter is a strange, unpredictable time for the area. Last week 70 degree temperatures were reached and in January it hit the 80 degree mark.
There have been a few dips into the 20’s but so far winter weather has consisted of temp’s mostly in the 40’s with, perhaps, some rain.
Now the prediction is freezing rain or sleet with temperature not going above the mid 30’s.
TXDOT has trucks of sand and gravel to spread on bridges and roadways. Schools are preparing for the necessity of closing for a day or two.
Others will wrap pipes or cover tender vegetation that has already sprouted in gardens.
Yesterday I bought ten gallons of gas just in case the electric lines are downed and we have to run off the generator.
People hear of a major change in the weather and they prepare.
Prepare to meet your God, Amos 4:12
How many are prepared for the return of Jesus. He has given notice that He is returning. He may not have said when but He has promised that return nevertheless.
He has prepared for you!
I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. John 14:3
Are you ready?
Have you prepared to meet your God as much as you have prepared for other things in life like winter weather, a vacation, or retirement?
