What happens when things don't go as expected? When God doesn't make sense? When our worst fears are realized? What then? How do we respond? What's more, how do we lead our family/kids during such a time? Listen in this week as the guys discuss how to handle the storm when it hits.
As parents, we set the emotional tone within the home.
When something bad happens, it's not simply about you, surviving. But as a parent, it is about modeling to our children how to handle storms.
We don't want to model fear.
Faith isn't faith until it is all you have.
How should we has a family handle storms? (Proverbs 3:5-6)
1. Trust in the Lord with all your heart. When storms happen, we must trust. Learning to trust God happens daily, before the storm happens.
2. Lean not on your own understandings. Life doesn't have to make sense. In fact, most often, life doesn't make sense. And just because we don't understand what God is doing, doesn't mean life is ending and the sky is falling. We shouldn't learn on our own understanding.
3. In all your ways, acknowledge God. Seek God and his kingdom first, and all things will be taken care of.
4. The payoff, if you do the first three things, God will direct your path. Then, no matter what happens, it is a no lose in that it will be ok.
