Time is short and it’s up to all of us to make the most it and prepare accordingly. Supply chain interruptions and black swan events have taken a toll on the average American and it will only become more difficult to prepare in the days ahead! With that said now is the time to pray, plan and prepare.
If you have been caught flat footed and suddenly realize it’s time to prepare (or past time) I highly recommend that you take inventory of what supplies, tools and equipment your house hold has on hand. Sit down and make a list of the items you use most everyday. Break it down by food, hygiene, medical, defense and even entertainment! If you don’t have two weeks worth of these items, then you need to remedy that now! I know for most households money is tight right now so consider the very basics first. Consider buying bags of rice, dried beans, iodized salt, lentils, canned goods in soups and vegetables. Does everyone in your family have rugged out door clothing? Do you have warm winter clothing for everyone in the family? Get those things now! Don’t wait another 24 hrs now is not the time for procrastination.
Keep it basic…keep it simple…keep it cost effective. Now is the time to make the most of your money and make all purchases count. Consider buying bic lighters, matches, bottled water, moderately priced multi tools, knives, shovels, duct tape for repairs, good but moderately priced lanterns and flash lights. Make sure that you and your family can shelter in place for at least 2 weeks. Consider defensive items you and your family may need if 911 doesn’t work and emergency services can’t be reached or respond. (911 went down across the nation just a few days ago). Now is the time to think about how you will defend you and your family in times of violence and chaos and most importantly seek Jesus Christ!
Instability and dwindling time require action. Do not panic but do move with all deliberate speed to acquire the items you and your family need to survive now…do it in the next 24 hours! It is time!
Two weeks is the bare minimum. Be it a good start, you need to plan for longer periods of disruption and chaos. We will take that into consideration tomorrow. Good look and God bless as you move forward.
