Enjoy the Ride

merry go roundSometimes it feels as though life is overwhelming us, and we’re clinging to the cold steel bar of a merry-go-round spinning way too fast. It sometimes feels like 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 intend to thrive.

God is the handle we must hang onto. Amazingly, when we cling to Him, the ride begins to slow, and the things that once whirred past in a blur begin to come into focus. The ride is once again fun and something to be enjoyed, rather than survived. Accept God’s love! Enjoy this awesome ride!

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

You Made Good Time!

Too often, we are so intent on getting where we’re going, we don’t enjoy the trip. We put ourselves on automatic pilot, set the cruise control and just drive. Why are we in such a hurry? We should be enjoying things along the way.

Remember back in the day; we’d arrive at our destination after a long trip, and invariably, someone (Uncle Sid comes to mind) would say, “You made good time!”

I have no fear of death because I am confident what lies beyond is eternity with God. The thing is, I may not be afraid to die, but I’m not in any hurry to do so.
