I was all geared up to post about Lead generation; the first steps to success as an entrepreneur, and got the news of my hometown of Manchester, Iowa, being flooded.
The rains have created floods, causing the dam to break resulting in devastation to many families. It’s been heavy on my heart all day. And has everything else seem less important in comparison.
This is where people can celebrate the very fact they are alive! But for many, it brings this question to my mind; where does one find hope – when all hope is gone?
I mean, everyone of us go through adversities. Some we knowingly or UNknowingly create for ourselves… more on that in another post. But what about the adversity that comes from good ‘ole Mother Nature? My heart hurt after seeing the pictures today. Many people out of homes, losing everything. Many others having their businesses ruined. I have, personally, not gone through a devastation like this. Last summer my parents had a tornado run across their farm just outside of Manchester, Iowa. Leaving only the house and taking out sheds, the barn, and 60+ trees. They were lucky.
In trying times, we can turn to our faith, we can rely on and turn to support from others, and ultimately, we must rely on our own ability to pick up the pieces and move on.
I know they say time heals all wounds. but who has time?! I have often thought, what the world needs now, is love sweet love.
I feel helpless to the group who is lost without their homes and businesses and others who have damage to their homes and belongings. It had me compelled to write this blog post. I believe in the power of prayer/ and the power of positive thought. I thought perhaps this blog post could be directed with intention to send love via thought and prayer to assist those who have suffered from a crisis with mother nature.
Providing the thougths of courage could perhaps be the one thing that assists a person who feels all hope is gone.
In a world that is full of adversity, what ways do you find courage at times that seem hopeless? Perhaps you have a personal experience or a way that you rely on to move forward. Please post your words of wisdom, and then feel free to tweet, so others can benefit from your strength. and I too will be grateful to pass on the love.
