To be self-reliant one must be prepared for all things that can and will happen. I am a Christian by faith and James 2:14-26 tell us faith without works is dead. I live 30 miles inland on the Texas Gulf Coast. I pray every year that we don’t get decimated by a hurricane. Then I start acting. From time to time I start my generator to make sure it is working correctly. I keep my gasoline tanks full. I watch the weather online and on TV to see if there is a possibility of a major storm heading my way. There are so many things to do to be ready for a major storm you can lose your sanity quickly if you wait until the last minute. Also, if you wait to the last minute you will have to deal with people who are acting insane. Do you really want to get in an altercation over a case of bottle water? Hurricane season is upon us. Check your supplies, get ready, talk to GOD, and sleep well.
