Do you ever feel like you’re on a roller coaster ride and the attendant decides to take an extended lunch break? So you’re riding along and having fun, the ride slows down and you enter the chute where you will exit the ride, but the ride doesn’t stop. It goes right on through the chute and back up you go.
Maybe it will be fun to go again, you think.
You come to a slow and enter the chute again, expecting to stop this time, and continue right on through and back up again.
That’s what I feel like right now. I just want to get off of the roller coaster and take a breather.
I mentioned a few days ago that God was moving Big time, and it was wonderful! But ya know what happens when God moves? Satan gets worried that he’s losing the battle and he starts getting ugly. He fights dirty too. Pulls out all the nasty stuff and uses it to pull us back to his ways.
So, there’s a battle going on. It’s ugly. It’s not fun. It makes me cry.
It makes me lean closer to God.
It makes me call my prayer warriors.
It draws me nearer to Christ.
For some, it makes them question.
I know the victor. I will stand firm in His promises, and know that this is working for His good. He has a plan and I’m trying not to step in the way, all the while I’m trying to lead by example.
It’s not easy because I’m human and I fall short every day. The beauty of that is forgiveness and grace.
If only we choose to accept it.
So I will continue to ride this coaster until the journey is done. Each hill gets us closer.
