When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

The Storms of Life

“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 this storm’s all about.” 
― Haruki Murakami -

I read this the other day and was so overwhelmed with short bit of wisdom that I found here.  My life, for the  past year, has been filled with seemingly one storm after another.  There was a time, when I wasn't sure what would happen, or how I would handle it.  But I am making it through, I am surviving, and I am not the same person that I used to be.
I am working on the person that I want to become.  The Lord gives us understanding as we struggle through, line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little.  As we grow in understanding, we become more  like Him.  All the trials and the problems in life help us to grow, to learn and to become.

  1. A wonderful post full of great wisdom. I do think in retrospect we can see the growth after the storm. I am just so grateful that our Savior is always there to walk through the storm.
    Blessings for this one!
