Suffering From Thunderstorms

A little girl who suffered greatly during thunderstorms was told by her mother to pray when she was alarmed.

One day at the close of a fearful storm she came to her mother with the information that praying during the danger brought her no relief.

"Then," said her mother, "try praying when the sun shines, and see if that will take away the fear."

The child did so, and when another storm was raging she said sweetly:--

"Pray when the sun shines is the best way, for I am not the least bit afraid now."

What a lesson we who are older might learn from this incident! How often do we stay away from our Master until the storms of life drive us to Him for shelter and protection!

If we could only give our best, our brightest days to his service, we would have no cause to tremble when the dark hours come on. How very much we miss by not having Jesus to go with us through all our earthly pilgrimage!
