Enjoy the Ride! ~ December 17

Enjoy the Ride!

Life should be fun!

My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Psalm 84:2

I often think of heaven and wonder what it will be like, but as I grow closer to God and better understand His awesome love for us, I begin to realize we can have heaven here on earth. Not the complete and wonderful version of it we will experience when we actually get there, but the earthly version. By God’s gift of grace, we can live at peace with this world which often seems to be spinning wildly out of control.

Oftentimes we feel as though life is overwhelming us, and we are clinging to the cold steel bar of a merry-go-round spinning way too fast. Sometimes, it feels as though victory is nothing more than surviving the ride. But to use one of my favorite terms, we shouldn’t intend to merely survive, we should expect to thrive.

God is the handle we must hang onto. And, amazingly, when we cling to Him, the ride will begin to slow, and the things whirring blurrily past will come into focus. The ride will become fun and something to be enjoyed, rather than merely survived.

Accept God’s love, learn to live within it. Enjoy this awesome ride!
