We were in the middle of a thunderstorm when my daughter said that she wasn’t going to go anywhere until the storm was over. 
I heard myself saying to her “you can’t let the storm run your life”.
There’s a lot of truth even spiritually speaking in that statement. 
Life can get messy. It can go the way we would never prefer. But our response shouldn’t be to freeze or to quit, but to just keep holding on to His promises…that it will all work out for good.
