They could choose to believe in their God or not to believe in their God, it was up to them. When we think the storms of life come to us to destroy us, sometimes it comes so we can see the hand of God in our lives. We also have a choice to believe or not. We can panick, or we can choose to believe that God has a reason for us going through whatever we're going through. What will you choose today?
