Facing the Storm

“When the storm breaks, each man acts in accordance with his own nature. Some are dumb with terror. Some flee. Some hide, and some spread their wings like eagles and soar on the wind.” (Dr. Dee from the movie Elizabeth.)

This quote really struck me when I heard it. Everyone of us faces storms in life. It is not a matter of if but of when. Everyone reacts differently when we face times of crisis. I agree that most of the time we do act in accordance of our own nature. I think that is why it is so important that we have a strong foundation before the storm hits. Even in our greatest storms we can soar like eagles above the wind. It is when we rise above the storm, can we see who hold us secure in the time of crisis. So, no matter what your storm is, you can only go through it but know that you do not go through it alone.
