My Life is A Roller Coaster

...and boy am I glad! :) 

As I was praying to my everlasting Father tonight, signing at the discouragement ahead of me, He whispered to me such a precious saying, that I shall never forget it...

It's true, our lives are like roller coasters sometimes... One moment we are "feeling" the presence of God and want to seek Him wholeheartedly, but then His Word feels tasteless and we fall into the trap the devil has set for us, doubt and despair. But really, when you are riding a very scary roller coaster, are you afraid of falling off of your seat (except in those creepy fairs)? No, you trust that the ride is well made, and that everything has been built for your safety and enjoyment. You know that the wagon will take you safe and sound to your final destination, the unmovable ground, where all the twirling and heart-skipping drops will finally cease. You've made it! The same is with Jesus, our Comforter and Protector (Isaiah 9:6, Psalm 91), who keeps us forever safe in the palm of His hands when we are going through the fastest, most terrifying loops of our emotions and circumstances. And while it is rough along the way, it will lead us into the perfect, truly unshakeable Ground, eternity in Heaven with Christ!

"Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."
Joshua 1:9

Rock n' Roller Coaster - I rode this one, and it goes upside down!
I was the kind of young girl that would always wait at the finish line, gladly receiving and congratulating the audacious people who embarked on the scary roller coaster... But two months ago when my family and I went on vacation, God gave me the courage to ride 4 very, very scary roller coasters, and some of them with the drop of 80 feet! To me who used to despise small 3 feet drops, this was a big accomplishment. And Jesus was there, just as He is now when I am facing a new trial in my own little "roller coaster"! We can do all things through Christ (Phil. 4:13), He never forsakes us (Heb. 13:5), and He loves us (1 Jh. 4:19)! No ultra-modern, ultra-safe seat and buckle can compare to His everlasting care and protection! Sister, though the ride is scary, you become dizzy, and your eyes fail to see your Prize (Phil. 3:14), rest and let our strong, Almighty God lead you through this hard season, whether it be physical, spiritual, or emotional.

"Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ."
Philippians 1:6

Come with me on this roller coaster, and let us praise Jesus together!!!
In all sisterly love,

  2. Hi Julia! :D Oh, thank you so much for encouraging me, I am always grateful when His Spirit can write (or type!) through my fingers. "He must increase, but I must decrease" John 3:30! I'm sure that your roller coaster is harder and more trying than any ...awful... physical ones! I'm praying for you my sister...

    I love and miss you dearly too!!

    In all sisterly love,
