Any one who has an actual emergency plan will tell you they realized one way or another that they were not prepared should things go south. Well today was my day to realize just how unprepared for the unexpected I am. Thankfully nothing bad happened to open my eyes. I was reading an article in Backwoods Home Magazine( btw great resource for those who want to live a simpler life) when it became crystal clear that I’ve been living in a delusion. You see, if you would’ve asked me yesterday, I would’ve told you I was pretty prepared.
After reading this great article and reflecting on how we really live(not how I grew up, but actually live today) I’ve decided to make some changes. I’m not talking about bomb shelters and communes here, but being prepared should something locally, regionally, nationally, or globally go terribly wrong. In a series of posts I’ll be looking at:
- What does being prepared even mean?
- What does the Bible say about preparing for the future?
- Is knowledge the key, what should our mindset be?
- What kind of events should we be “prepping” for?
- What gear is needed and how to use it?
I hope you’ll come on this adventure with me. I’m excited to get going and look forward to sharing all I learn with you. As always I would love to hear from you, any ideas, questions, thoughts, or experiences.
