Look up and smile

A little girl walked to and from school daily. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to the elementary school. As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with thunder and lightning.

The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school and she herself feared that the electrical storm might harm her child.

Following the roar of thunder, lightning, like a flaming sword, would cut through the sky. Full of concern, the mother quickly got into her car and drove along the route to her child’s school. As she did so, she saw her little girl walking along, but at each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up and smile. Another and another were to follow quickly and with each the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile.

When the mother’s car drove up beside the child she lowered the window and called to her.

“What are you doing? Why do you keep stopping?”

The child answered, “I am trying to look pretty, God keeps taking my picture.

The storms (challenges, trials and temptations) will come. As a matter of fact, nobody promised they won't come. 

There will be times when you feel abandoned, times when you feel like nobody likes you, times when you feel no one understands, times when you feel like giving up on that dream, that business idea, that project, that beautiful blog, yes, there will be times when you sought for a soul mate but found none. 

These times will come but like a mirage it will also pass only if you hold on a lil, a lil, just a lil longer and i bet you would see a light at the end of the tunnel. The light might appear dim at first but still don't give up for  the light will shine bright, soooooo..... bright that you would be amazed at its brightness.  Keep holding on and each time you come across any storm look UP (to God) and smile because it will turn to YOU yes YOU for a testimony.
May God bless you today as you face the storms that come your way.

Never give up look UP (to God) and smile.
