Most of us are aware of the story about Noah building the ark in preparation for the expected flood. We too have also been repeatedly warned about impending hurricanes, snowstorms and monsoons, yet far too often, we are caught unprepared for these interruptions.
In the same way that we now accept these disasters as part of everyday living, we should realize that there will always be interruptions and tragedies in our lives. There will always be divorce, death, business failure, illnesses, unemployment and a host of other detours.
So how can we be expected to be positive after disaster strikes? Here are some suggestions for enjoying the sunshine, after the rain:
> Routinely develop a life that is physically, emotionally and spiritually strong.
> Be thankful that you survived the challenge.
> Identify, and use, the lessons, which emerged from the experience.
> Positively focus on moving forward.
> Give hope to others by sharing your story.
Have a blessed week.
