No Storm Lasts Forever


The quotespedi­ website states: “Survival in today’s world is difficult. Therefore, we need to remember and practice some real-life skills to combat any situation that lay ahead of us. Remember that life is actually a roller-coaster ride, and we need to accept it as it comes.

“Nobody has seen the future, and therefore it is useless to over-think it. Over-thinking will not only ruin the present situation but also crush our confidence. Dedication and confidence are important in combating any situation with complete stability of the mind.

“The famous thinker Plato once said that reality is created in the mind and we can change our reality by changing the mind. This means that no situation in life is permanent and every good or bad phase in life will certainly change with advancing time.”

I personally believe that nothing lasts forever, they be good or bad. Someone has written: “Just enjoy the ride.” It’s important that we just embrace whatever is unfolding before our eyes and bend like the bamboo so we will not be broken.

I believe, too, that no matter how rough and tough are the waves in the sea of life, God is on top of the situation, and is control of everything. What is important is that we should not loosen our trust in the

Lord’s mercy, and should not waver in our faith.

I believe that as any storm lashes us without pity God is ahead of us.

God in His infinite mercy is there to shield us no matter how cruel are the winds of life. His warm embrace gives us the assurance that there’s nothing impossible with Him to set us free from the bondage of misery. When there’s no way, God will make a way.

We have to be fervent and persistent in our prayer and never give up,. Prayer can change our perspectiv­e and our situation. Our trust and faith in the Lord should be bigger than our fear, otherwise we will be overwhelme­d by our fear and anxiety. If this happens, we will lose our balance in dealing with life.

The livelifeha­ website shares a message: “Remember, no storm lasts forever. Hold on. Be brave. Every storm is temporary, and we’re never alone.”

Iyanli Vanzani writes, “No storm can lasts forever. It will never rain 365 days consecutiv­ely. Keep in mind that trouble comes to pass, not to stay. Don’t worry! No storm, not even the one in your life, can last forever.”

Douglas Adams writes: “When you walk through the storm, hold your head up high. And don’t be afraid of the dark! At the end of the storm is a golden sky and the sweet song of the lark. Walk on through the wind, walk on through the rain though your dreams be tossed and blown. Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart, and you’ll never walk alone. You’ll never walk alone!”

It’s important that we just embrace whatever is unfolding before our eyes and bend like the bamboo so we will not be broken.
