An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Roller Coasters

(Proverbs 3:23 KJV)  Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.

Some people like excitement more than others.  I have ridden on roller coasters.  I can’t say that I look forward to doing it again.  Intellectually I was feeling safe and secure.  Emotionally and physically, not so much.  There is something unsettling about coming over the top of the rise and heading almost straight down.  There is only one way you could get me on one and that was by being sure that it was safe.

To be honest I never went and checked the documentation to see if the ride had been inspected.  I assumed.  I never doubted that some mysterious person or team had gone over the bolts and the beams making up that skeleton structure and declared it solid.  I never looked at the equations that showed the cars would not fly off into space on a curve.  I just assumed.

So?  When you have confidence in the Celestial Engineer and the Author of All Things you can make certain assumptions about the life you live and the challenges you face.  It makes the roller coaster of life more bearable.
