Good Morning. Did you ever notice how much the life of a person is usually like a ride on a roller coaster? There are many hills and valleys. As your coaster climbs the hill there is peace along with an anticipation of what will happen next. All you can see is the blue sky is in front of you. Your hear the soft clakety-clack of the chains and gears pulling you to the top: the peak. Then suddenly all that peace disappears. Plunging downward at break-neck speeds, the ground gets closer and closer. Your heart is pounding harder and harder. But, almost as quickly as you came down, you start going up again. This time though you are not concentrating on the peace: you hardly notice the blue skies, and soft clacking. You are trying to recover from the shock of that dip in your life. Just as you catch your breath, you are shot down again. A surprise awaits you in the valley. As you speed upward from the valley, your life is thrown into a loop. Your world is completely flipped upside down. As you straighten out there are many more hills and valleys to go through until your ride finally comes to an end.
King David wrote, “Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. (Psalm 32:1-2).
Life can be like a roller coaster ride. Riding it’s ups and downs alone can be frightening sometimes. But if you are saved, you have the only true and living God riding it with you. You are blessed.
Peace. (Ps. 32:1)
