“The time to prepare is now. Any other time is too late.”
Yesterday I wrote about the need to always be prepared.
It has become very interesting how I woke up yesterday with this topic on my mind.
I had no previous intentions to write on the topic. In fact, beyond my mindset book that should be available for sale in the next couple months in a shameless early plug, I haven’t been thinking much at all about any topics to write about.
Well, the need to always be prepared with emergency food and water came to me when I woke up, so I wrote about it.
I then went on with my day, where, without looking for it, I stumbled onto more commentary about the supply chain.
Something in the air? A coincidence?
But it doesn’t hurt to be aware of it.
Following are a couple quotes from a letter put out recently by the International Chamber of Shipping: “Joint open letter – Transport heads call on world leaders to secure global supply chains”:
“The impact of nearly two years’ worth of strain, placed particularly upon maritime and road transport workers, but also impacting air crews, is now being seen. Their continued mistreatment is adding pressure on an already crumbling global supply chain. We are witnessing unprecedented disruptions and global delays and shortages on essential goods including electronics, food, fuel and medical supplies. Consumer demand is rising and the delays look set to worsen ahead of Christmas and continue into 2022…”
“…It is of great concern that we are also seeing shortages of workers and expect more to leave our industries as a result of the poor treatment they have faced during the pandemic, putting the supply chain under greater threat…”
Included in the letter are also a lot of demands having to do with greater vaccine availability, digital passports, and other concepts you may disagree with. Nothing in the letter is being endorsed here. This information is simply being presented to share the perspective of a major shipping organization on the state of the global supply chain, including the supply of food around the world.
None of this means you ought to panic. None of it even means there will be such a significant food shortage that would cause people to have to go into emergency supplies at all.
For me, it raises the question of whether or not there are potential situations we need to be prepared for.
Regardless of your opinion on the state of the supply chain, by following stress-free preparation tactics you can rest easy knowing you are prepared whether you have the answers to these questions or not, or whether your opinion is right or not.
So use your discernment and/or prayerfully consider this information to see how you ought to respond to it.
If you are in a constant state of preparation, though, you are already ready.
And remember, it doesn’t have to be difficult, expensive, or stressful to become prepared.
And now, another shameless plug…
