Storms do not last forever.

And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure whether the storm is really over.

But one thing is certain, when you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what the storm is about.

Welcome back to this blog! I trust you are good. Speaking of consistency, I’ve been trying to be more consistent with posting. We read in the name of The Father, Son and Holy Spirit!

Life is a blend of thorns and roses but he who dares not grasp the thorn should never crave the rose, someone said. The Bible says in 1st Corinthians 2 vs 9 – “That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.”

During times of storms, one thing we can do is to keep holding to God’s Words because Heaven and earth will pass away but God’s Words will never pass away( Matthew 24:35).

God is preparing us for success. He can’t just take us to that position He plans for us because we won’t know how to handle the responsibilities if we had not passed through the preparation stage. The actress Juliana Olayode said in her book “Rebirth” that God doesn’t take people up, He grows people up so that when they get up, they will have learnt enough to handle the promotion well. Joseph passed through the storm, but it wasn’t to hurt him but to train him for his future. Esther passed through the storm but it prepared her to be a virtuous vessel.

Take every storm as a training ground for greater heights.
