True story: About a year ago I had to take an important 3 hour drive. I decided to take the back roads to save time, so the roads were unfamiliar. When I left the house it was raining a little, but nothing too bad. About an hour into the drive, the rain and wind got worse. The rain came more and the wind blew harder. Very hard. I was in a storm.
Since I had to be there by 7am, I had to leave my house at 4am, so it was dark the entire time. It was even more isolating because I was the only one on the road most of the time. The road had many unknown curves, inclines and declines. It was scary and even dangerous at times. As the storm got worse I got more afraid. I was alone and I was cold because the heat in my vehicle was out. I drove very slowly and at times I wanted to turn around to go back home or pull over to wait it out, but I thought if I turn around I would be back to square 1 and if I stopped I may get stuck out there, so I continued to drive. Almost the entire drive I couldn't see anything in the front of me. I prayed out loud the entire time and I talked out loud to the Lord. What else was I going to do? There was nobody else out there.
Finally, I got to my destination and thought I'm never driving that way again during that time of day. Never. But later that day, you know what happened? The sun came out and things just didn't seem that bad anymore. I was now around the people I Iiked being around. At that moment I thought to myself I'm glad I didn't turn around and I'm glad I didn't stop. I weathered another storm.
Going through that storm made me so much stronger and God was with me the entire time. Even though I was scared, alone, and cold, He heard my voice. He also hears your voice, because He loves you and you are not alone. He will keep you safe even when it seems you're in danger. So keep driving forward even if you're in a storm. Don't turn back and don't stop. Just like I did, you'll make it.
