Today I was reminded of a story about a girl and her father. The young lady is driving, and it starts to rain heavily. As they drive on, it became apparent that they are driving into a storm. They begin to notice other vehicles pulling over to the side road until they are the only ones still driving. The young lady asked her father if they should stop. His response was to keep going. Eventually, the storm will pass.
There are all types of storms. Some come and go; some stay awhile, and others move quickly. Storms can be unpredictable, sometimes giving notice and other times just showing up. The one truth is they eventually pass.
I’ve gone through many storms in my life internally and externally. Warnings have been issued, and other times, just hello. There are moments during the storms where I am like the other drivers, and I pull over and sit and wait out the storm allowing it to bombard me. Other times I take the advice of the father and keep pushing through.
Life is full of storms, but we have to remember that they have to end. What storms are you currently going through? Are you going to wait it out or push through to the final destination.
