Now, looking back on this minute experience, I’ve really come to realize that we wouldn’t lean on our Father in Heaven and our Savior Jesus Christ if we knew how everything would turn out. It’s in the unexpected moments that we have to turn to Them and seek some guidance. That’s when we learn just how hard they work to ensure we will return safely to our heavenly home.

This was very interesting to me. If we knew when it would storm in life, we would always be prepared by wearing the right clothes, bringing the umbrella, securing the windows, etc., when those moments in life that storms would happen.
But, as it stands now, we try to prepare but we can't always secure up our houses or we wouldn't be able to enjoy the beautiful, sunny days when there is no storms or rain.
Unexpected storms in life require us to rely more on our Heavenly Father. We turn to Him. We seek His guidance and protection. We need His help.
