There may come a time or even two when you will have to survive an avalanche of unfavorable events arriving at your door all during the same time period, and taking no numbers. Oh boy, or oh girl, you will only be able to wish that this was your 9:15 am shared appointment at the Doctor’s office as you wonder where did all these people come from at my appointed time. And that is the thing about the coming of an avalanche. Its sudden arrival catches you off guard; and therefore, you are not ready to properly accommodate all that’s about to come your way as you are believing that the current time is appointed to accommodate you. It’s not so alarming when you already know that a bill is coming due, and you can’t pay it. However, to not know of many new charges coming to you, and just showing up due immediately in which you didn’t expect to pay any of them, well, that can be more than just alarming. The avalanche is not really made up of bills, child support or wrong doings not made amends to: as such things you already know were done by you, and such types should not be a sudden surprise when they come knocking at your door. And even if all of them showed up suddenly during the same time period, you may not have known that today was the day, but you already knew that the day could and would come. And here’s the real kicker concerning the avalanche itself, you have to be close enough to its origin in order to be hit by it. If you are not close by the path of it, it will not be able to make its way into your accommodated time, for its time will run out. And don’t be mistaken by location when thinking about not being close enough to the avalanche. The avalanches of this current century has been super charged by the internet. The long arm of the internet is always close enough to you to show up suddenly and unexpectedly; especially, if you fail to accommodate its origin before the origin is breached enough to move all it knows to reach avalanche’s size and speeds to overwhelm you. Surviving An Avalanche.
So how do you survive an avalanche, and live to talk about surviving it to others? You know, many do not survive any type of avalanche at times: spiritual, natural, or physical? Either type is a challenge to come through at any time. The answer is not by spending hours on YouTube. And I am not knocking YouTube at all, as it as been the answer to many of my prayers. You know, as much as I love the Lord and the Father; and Ok, the Holy Ghost too, as I can sense Him in my spirit thinking me up with that “what about me look.” And you know how being Jealous is part of the spiritual nature of the Godhead anyway: Exodus 34:14, “For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. So since, I sensed, the Holy Ghost sending me that “what about me look,” I thought I would go ahead and handle the origin before it becomes a spiritual avalanche. Did you see how I could have had a spiritual avalanche on the horizon if I had just ignored that look that I sensed from the Holy Ghost ? And I appreciate the Holy Ghost for role playing with me to show how to keep from being close to the origin of an avalanche: just go handle the wronged business as soon as you know its there to keep the origin from being breached. I don’t take all my prayers to the Godhead members, as there are others in need of the undivided attention of the Godhead at times other than a mature son as myself; and during some of those times the YouTube as been all that I needed to get the job done. Oh yeah, YouTube was great with helping me with my lawn sprinkler system: light weight work for the Godhead, so I don’t really bother God with stuff like that unless all else has failed. However, I sure did say “thank you Jesus” after me and YouTube finished up the work needed to be done. Anyway, there I go running off the focus again. Surviving An Avalanche.
When it comes to any natural avalanches, things that don’t become physical, I will instantly transfer them over to my spiritual account because there is no one better to quickly handle a non-physical avalanche than God. It’s okay and necessary to spiritually work with God to end the natural avalanche coming against you, and that is totally different than having God become Jealous enough to bring a spiritual avalanche upon you. I remember Abraham running off to “camp should have known God little better by now;” as it is not exactly a residence like Camp David, but Abraham had been in a summit with a few of the power players in the region. Yeah, he probably should have ran it by God first. The next thing that Abraham knows, is that he’s off to make sacrifice: this would qualify as being sudden, and so overwhelming that we better not let Sarah in on this one. Since she had once laughed at having a baby in her old age, well, we know how going to kill the baby that she finally did have would go over with her. And I am not even going to get into what Hezekiah had in mind with the Assyrians, for God was not a happy camper: do I hear death in his future? The lesson of the Avalanche is not to make things right by ignoring what is wrongly being done in the eyes of God. Father is not going to get emotional and needy with us among the others. We just need to take care of the business at hand when it suddenly comes, and Father will handle all else as we handle our business. Surviving An Avalanche.
