One day a young lady was driving with her father in the
family car and they drove into a very heavy storm,
and the young lady asked her father,
'What should I do, stop or keep driving?'
He said, 'keep on driving.'
As they drove on cars began to pull over to the side of the
road as the storm was getting worse. Again the young lady asked,
'Father, what should I do, stop or keep driving?'
'Keep on driving' her father replied.
A few kilometers on the young lady noticed that not only
more cars were pulling over, but also some big transport trucks
were also pulling over to the side of the road.
She told her father, 'Now I must pull over, I can barely see ahead.
It is terrible and everyone is pulling over!'
Her father told her again, 'Don't give up, just keep driving!'
Now the storm was at its worst, but she did as her father had
advised and kept driving and then the storm started to
ease and she could see a little more clearly.
After a couple of kilometers she had driven out of the storm
and the sun came out and the road ahead was dry.
Her father said, 'Now you can pull over and let's get out.'
'But why now, Father?' she asked.
Her father said 'When you get out, you can look back at all the
people in cars and trucks that gave up and are still in the storm
and because you never gave up your storm is now over.'
This is a testimony for anyone who is going through 'hard times'
and their own 'personal storms.'
Just because everyone else, even the strongest, gives up.
You don't have to . . . If you keep going, soon your storm will
be over and the road ahead will be dry and clear,
and the sun will shine upon you again!!!
