A category five storm is the strongest most severe class of hurricane on the scale for measuring the strength of hurricanes. The intensity of their winds and floods are capable of causing complete roof failure on buildings, causing coastal damage, city flooding and was the result of Hurricane Katrina. Those that survived Hurricane Katrina was saved by the love of God and nothing else; for nothing but God was able to keep them in the days of trouble serving as their strong tower, hiding them under His wings of protection, keeping them grounded while everything and everyone around them was blown away. Nobody, but God was able to sustain them through floods and winds of that magnitude. Nobody, but God was able to restore back to them all that was damaged by the winds and destroyed by the flood.
My sister, you too are a category 5 SURVIVOR, which is why you must always remember the strength that lies within you. Don’t let depression, defeat or discouragement get the best of you. Your category 5 survival skills have already been proven. If you have lived through the loss of a mother, father, a child then you are a category 5 SURVIVOR. If you have been through a divorce, lay-off, sickness then you are a category 5 SURVIVOR. If you have overcome an addiction or recovered after a house fire then you are a category 5 SURVIVOR for you have already survived a category five storm. So don’t ever let the enemy make you think that you don’t have what it takes to make it thru a category 1, 2 or 3 storm. You are a category 5 SURVIVOR and the same GOD that got you through the hurricane is the same GOD that will get you through the storm. So rejoice, because this too shall pass. The storm is almost over and you will be restored!
