I love this song! It put into perspective Noah's story and experience. I have better understood what he went through and what he needed to be prepared for. I know that it is important to be prepared.
Often in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints the phrase 'emergency preparedness' will come up. That is because we like to be ready. We have food, clothes and toiletries set aside in case of an emergency, we work to develop skills in first aid or survival in the outdoors, we also have game plans within our families for if there were a fire where we would meet. These things we call emergency preparedness and as it is obvious we enjoy being prepared.
(Doing service at local shelter and came across this)
However though we are prepared for emergencies, how prepared are we for everyday life?
What should we do to be prepared on a daily basis to live as God would have us live?
I have come to find the answer is 3 different things.
2. Scripture study
3. Church attendance
These three things keep our faith strong and remind us of Gods purpose for each of His children. We then are blessed and are ready for TODAY rather then just that day. Just as we wait for the day that Christ will come to the Earth again someday at the same time we can be prepared by having Him in our hearts each day.
I am grateful for Noah's example and I am grateful for opportunities to be prepared! It is never a bad idea to check your emergency preparedness and your everyday preparedness. If you don't feel prepared then make that a new goal!
