So, how do you handle adversity? How about in a SHTF scenario? WROL due to a failure of civility? TEOTWAWKI? Tornado? Hurricane? Earthquake? Zombie apocalypse? I would go absolutely nuts if I did not have a solid spiritual foundation. There is so much to worry about or be fearful of if you don’t have something bigger than yourself to rely on. Stonewall Jackson understood it. He believed that nothing could kill him before it was his God-appointed time to go, and he was good with going at his appointed time. I have taught myself to think like that. You see the window decals and bumper stickers that say ‘No Fear?’ Well, that is how it works for a hard core believer in God and Yeshua (Jesus). Do I want to die? Hell no! I would wish to avoid suffering if at all possible, but since I have a ticket to the afterlife and believe it will be pretty darn good, what the heck. I don’t want to preach (well, yes I do) but everyone should have a plan, and be totally convinced in it so it will carry you through the worst of times. Unfortunately, many have no plan and no foundation. Here is an article about that.
And just in case anyone is wondering, my adherence to Torah in no way conflicts with being saved by the free gift of grace.
