    Some Simple Individual Preparedness Tips For Everyone



    Our relationship with Jesus is first and foremost. He alone is our hope before anything else.  Right now we need to be closer to Him than ever. His wisdom and direction for our lives is our first priority, as well as our complete obedience and diligence to what He reveals. It's time to find out who we are in Him and that faith in God really does work!

    Prepare yourself spiritually, mentally and emotionally as much as possible. We do this by first of all by waking up to and embracing the truth about where things are right now in our world and where they are headed.

    Prayer, every day, is the chief way to begin, especially concerning the more impacting things like war, mass destruction and death.

    We will face dramatically more spiritual, mental and emotional stress than we have ever experienced.  We must become disciplined enough to remain functional under extreme conditions should we be faced with such.  

    We need each other more now than ever. We need people that we can trust and count on to be there, with us and for us, people of faith, Godly people.

    The next basic priorities are water, food, clothing and shelter. Location enters into this as well in the sense of refuge, safety or protection.

    Know without any doubt where you are supposed to be located and establish the basics there.  Expect winters to be longer and colder than normal.  Prepare clothing and protection, shelter, with this in mind.

    Resources are limited until things change, so, start where you are, use what you have and do what you can.  Don't give in to idleness just because resources are limited. There's always something you can do toward preparedness.

    Build up a 30 day supply of provision and maintain it. The minimum is a 14 day, or two-week supply.  This means a supply that will sustain you for that period of time if ways and means of re-supply fail.

    Replace and rotate perishable food items according to their shelf life or expiration date.  Bear in mind that clean or pure water is a top priority and may be hard to acquire.

    Always plan extra, for yourself and for others who may come to you in need.

    Provision includes all things necessary to sustain life for you and your family; toiletries, medicines, first aid, etc., not just food and water. This supply can be as simple or detailed as you are able to perform.  Keep it basic and simple. We can get by or do with a lot less than we think.

    Prepare yourself to defend yourself if necessary. That means mentally, psychologically, and physically, as well as with some kind of means or weapon, including training, ammo or whatever goes with it.  Your abilities are the main determining factor.

    Next, is to train yourself in a greater personal awareness. Become more observant in every way. Think about the different situations that you may be confronted with and evaluate different ways that you could, or will, deal with them. Avoidance is the number one method for best results.  However, plan, mentally work through the situations that could happen and prepare yourself to act, and to act with control, confidence and whatever force to achieve the best results.

    Here's one final mention:  common sense! It's priceless!  Being able to look, evaluate and act in a good manner easily and without a lot of effort, utilizing what is readily available. I know that kind of sounds like a 'McGiver'(the TV show) kind of thing, but it makes all the difference when you really need it.  It must begin with our thinking, how we see or don't see things. 

    Know your limitations.  Look now at things like travel, expected or unexpected; direction, what route to take, not to take; how to travel, information, being informed before we travel, maps and such.  Prepare now, not later and always have more than one way to go.

    Another thing is emergency communication. Have a listening device, solar or cranking power, battery, multi-band radio receiver including shortwave. Even if you can't talk or transmit, you can at least get information.

    And then, transportation.  That is varied and very flexible.  Everyone may not be able to have a vehicle or fuel.  Regardless of what we face there is a common-sense solution for those who exercise it.

    And finally, stay under God's wings, his protection and care. He can, and will, do for us what we can't do for ourselves by whatever means is necessary.

    Much love and many blessings to each of you in every way as we face the days ahead together!
