The tree faced many storms through its young life. The powerful winds, torrential rains, ice and snow would lie across its branches.
At times the young tree questioned its Maker asking, “Why have you let so many storms come into my life?”
The Maker whispered, “You will understand one day. Stand firm; you will make it through the storms of life. The challenges will pass, keep this in mind.”
But the tree questioned, “If I go through one more winter, the snow will surely break my branches. If I face any more powerful winds, I will surely be uprooted and moved away.”
The Maker whispered, “Stand strong, dig your roots deep into the soil, you will understand someday.”
Somehow the young tree kept the positive thoughts in his mind and managed to survive and make it through even the toughest of storms. Somehow, when the winds and hurricanes should have broken it, the tree found a way to stand firm.
As the young tree grew and matured, it realized that the storms of life had made it stronger.
Life isn’t about waiting for the storms to pass… it’s about learning to dance in the rain.
