If we are going to make a difference in this world, if we are going to make it through the storms of life, if we are going to leave a lasting legacy, which is more than wealth, property, or material goods, then its what we are made of on the inside that counts, not how physically or emotionally strong we are. It doesn't matter how tough we are, when the storm hits, will we make it to the other side?
You don't have to talk to too many people, before you begin to hear about abuse, violence, addictions that have so gripped someones life that they are powerless to do anything about it. Life can throw a curve ball, and when it does how do we handle it? Do we run and hide, and grab hold of what vestiges of control we have, or do we come to the rock, that is bigger, stronger than us?
We need to come to God in total dependence and reliance on him, and we will see that he always gets us through!
