When a storm comes at sea, a ship turns to face the tempest. If the vessel allows the storm to hit its side, it will capsize. If it turns its back to the storm, the storm will drive it wherever the wind blows. Only in facing the storm is the ship safe. Says: Robert C. Shannon. As we face them we grow in character and faith and perseverance. Do not run away from trouble. Welcome adversities. This is discipline!
