Keep Driving

butterflyA young lady was driving with her father. They came upon a storm, and the young lady asked her father, “What should I do?”
He said. “Keep on driving.”
On up a few feet, she noticed that eighteen wheelers were also pulling over. She told her dad. “I must pull over, I can barely see ahead. It is terrible, and everyone is pulling over!”
Her father told her, “Don’t give up, just keep driving!”
As the storm intensified, she never stopped driving, and soon she could see a little more clearly. After a couple of miles she was again on dry land, and the sun came out. Her father said, “Now you can pull over and get out.”
She asked, “But why now?”
He said, “Because now that you are through the storm, you can get out and see the view-you can look back and see all the people who gave up and are still stuck in the storm.”

The Fight to the Finish

banner for website

Most fights involve two people whose anger has gotten the best of them, they either say words that are hurtful or use bodily harm that endangers them. Bodily harm brings about unnecessary forces while hurtful words destroys emotions and the willingness to forgive. Although a hurtful word may go further than a punch, we have a Savior and Advocate that will protect us and fight for us during times of turmoil and chaos. No longer do we have to waste our time shouting frivolous words and using acts of violence, all we have to do is take our concerns to the Father and watch him win the war, speak a calmness into our soul and give us a peace that is hard to understand.

Exodus 14:14 – The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace
