I've ridden every roller coaster at Six Flags, but I no longer have any desire to ride them. Batman takes too much out of me, the Demon pinches my neck, the American Eagle is uncomfortably bumpy…
Do we all reach a point when we no longer need the artificial ups and downs of an amusement park? Life itself brings enough excitement and challenges.
We don't seek out the biggest, bumpiest rides of our lives. They simply show up in the form of a health, job, or relationship crisis, and we have no choice but to step on. We can't predict what will happen from day to day or even hour to hour, and we don't know when or where the ride will end. Maybe it never really ends…We have absolutely no control!
How can we cope with all of this? Only by knowing that God is always riding with us.
