You ever realize the first instruction you are given in an emergency is to remain calm?
The reason you have to remain calm is so that you can follow directions and survive the event. This is especially true when there is more people involved than you; you have to remain calm so that they have someone to guide them.
I believe that the lessons we are taught during the emergency drills can help us face any situation. The word of the The Lord reminds us.
“Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”
Joshua 1:9 KJV
He also tells us to trust him to rely on him when we find ourselves in situations where we are troubled or concerned. Keep your mind on him, you can’t worry and trust!
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
Isaiah 26:3 KJV
Many situations in our lives will present themselves as an emergency. You will often be required to put yourself first so you can help others. Putting yourself first is not selfish, you can’t help anyone if you are broken and frustrated. Take time to allow Gods power to heal you. Take time out of each day to pray and seek God. Take time to relax and do something for you. The world won’t stop sending craziness so continue to do the things that allow you to stay strong. The world will send many situations to test you, trust God and watch it be ok. Ask God to be your guide and your strength. Ask God for what you need. He loves you and wants you to be successful.
“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.”
James 1:2, 4-6 KJV
