Sleep when the wind blows


A farmer on the Atlantic coast was having trouble finding a hired hand. Most people were afraid to work on his farm because of the frequent storms that came in from the ocean.

One day, a short, thin man approached the farmer and said, “I can sleep when the wind blows.”

The farmer was puzzled, but he was also desperate for help, so he hired the man.

The little man worked hard and did a good job. But one night, a storm came in with gale-force winds. The farmer was worried about his crops and livestock, so he went to the little man’s room to wake him up.

“A storm is coming!” the farmer shouted. “We need to secure everything before it blows away!”

The little man rolled over and said, “No need to worry. I can sleep when the wind blows.”

The farmer was furious. He was about to fire the little man when he noticed that everything on the farm was secure. The haystacks were covered with tarps, the cows were in the barn, the chickens were in the coops, and the doors and shutters were all closed tight.

The farmer realized that the little man had been prepared for the storm. He had taken care of everything, so there was nothing to worry about.

The farmer went back to his room and went to bed. He knew that everything was safe, so he could sleep soundly, even though the wind was howling outside.

The Moral of the Story

The moral of the story is that if we are prepared, we have nothing to fear. The little man was able to sleep because he had taken care of everything in advance. We can do the same thing by being prepared for the storms of life. We can ground ourselves in the Word of God and trust that He will take care of us. Then, we can sleep soundly, even when the winds of life are blowing.

How to be prepared for the storms of life

  • Be prepared for the unexpected.
  • Don’t worry about things you can’t control.
  • Trust in God and He will see you through.
  • Build your faith. The stronger your faith, the more you will be able to trust God in the midst of the storms.
  • Surround yourself with positive people. The people you spend time with can have a big impact on your outlook on life. Make sure you are surrounding yourself with people who will encourage you and lift you up.
  • Take care of yourself. When you are physically and mentally healthy, you are better able to handle stress and adversity. Make sure you are getting enough sleep, eating healthy foods, and exercising regularly.

If we do these things, we will be better prepared to face the storms of life. We may not always understand why we are going through difficult times, but we can trust that God is in control and that He will see us through.

The story is a reminder that we should always be prepared for the unexpected. We don’t know what challenges life will bring us, but if we are prepared, we will be better able to handle them. We should also trust in God and know that He will always be with us. He will see us through the storms of life and help us to overcome any obstacle.
