For a while now, I have been concerned about what's happening in the world today, and while I know to leave all my worries to God, I also feel like I need to be prepping for emergencies and for long term. Now, I really struggled with this because I know God will take care of my needs, and he has done that and then some.
However, when I think about Noah's story and Joseph's story, I am reminded that God did not give them an easy way out of their situations. Noah wasn't given gills for example. He had to build the ark with his own sweat, blood, and tears. Same with Joseph. He had to prepare for those 7 years of famine.
Now, if I'm raptured out before this world goes kablooey, that would be fantastic. God could then direct anyone to my place for them to use. But if not, I would think that perhaps it's time on this forum that we started discussing prepping since we know we are in the last days. Any thoughts?
