Eye of the Storm

Posted on Posted in Backblasts
  • When: 09/13/2018
  • QIC: McDreamy
  • The PAX: Tin Cup, Nutshell, Check Please, AirBags, Outhouse, Skim, Gizzard, Squeege, Full Monty, Seinfeld, Kodak, Gravy, Snookie , Yardsale, Dolla Bill, Mr, Yuk

The 17 Pax who met YHC at the O’dark 30 flag were treated to an 80’s hairband classic from the Scorpions: Rock You Like Hurricane. YHC took the opportunity to remind the brethren of the impending storm a few hundred miles north. Given our collective experience with Matthew and Irma, we know what’s coming. Fortunately, we aren’t in the target, but it begs the question: How do we survive life’s storms?

How do we survive the storms in our life?

  1. Prepare our minds and bodies
  2. Be patient—the storm will pass
  3. Seek shelter with your brothers
  4. Remember WHO controls the storm, and lean in—

Psalm 46:1-2 – “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.”
