A “bomb cyclone” hit the East Coast, dropping heavy snow and high winds. This winter weather phenomenon is known as bombogenesis, in which a storm’s minimum central pressure drops by at least 24 millibars in 24 hours. This snowstorm brought blizzard conditions, huge coastal flooding and over a foot of snow to parts of the northeastern United States on Thursday. It was also freezing as you can see from the poor firefighter above. And all day long, the TV Anchors said the same thing:
Stay indoors, and bundle up if you go outdoors.
There is another Bomb Cyclone that hits all of us regardless of where we live. It comes through divorces, death of a spouse, losing a child, job loss or losing your home. We are never prepared for these unexpected life changes and when they come, we can use the same advise from the weather advisory:
Stay indoors: This is not for you to stay indoors from everyone, and shut them out of your life. No, use this hard time to learn something from it, get to know yourself, for the storm does pass, and it eventually gets better. It is okay to feel numb or angry or in denial, but then, you have to accept reality, and know that you cannot change the inevitable. However, you can change how you respond for every struggle brings strength.
Bundle up with Faith, Families and good trustworthy friends.
Turn to God, and use Him to help you get through these difficult times. Ask God to give you the strength to get through each day. God is always there and wants us to reach out to Him for comfort and peace. Use this time to get a deeper relationship with our Father, for His yoke is easy.
Matt 11:28-30—Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
Families and friends want to help you, and so reach out to them when you need a shoulder to cry on, or someone to hug. Maybe you need some time alone without the kids, ask a family member to help. Tragedies are heartbreaking and overwhelming, but you do not have to face it alone. Together, with loved ones and friends, you can handle this ordeal.
And like the Bomb Cyclone that hit us on January 4th, 2018,(Thank God there was nothing catastrophic) we pick up and move on with our lives for we just don’t stay indoors forever. So those facing Bomb Cyclones in their personal lives need to do the same thing. Pick up the pieces for it will get better, and you will come out a stronger person.
