She loves Disney World! She prides herself on finally being tall enough to go on the more daring rides, just like her big sister. If you take a look at this snapshot, you see her riding this coaster for the first time…something she did of her own accord. However, she chose her seat mate very carefully, knowing she could trust her Dad to keep her safe. Her face paints a pretty accurate picture of what’s going on inside. When she got off this rollercoaster, she laughed with exhilaration and was ready to get right back on.
I picture life to be a lot like this. Sometimes the ride can be scary but I can trust the Father to keep me safe. Whatever your ride is like today, be it the gentle but dizzying merry go round or the wildest up and down and over and around rollercoaster, hang on to the One Who will keep you safe all the way through it.
Isaiah 41:13 gives us a clear picture…I am the Lord your God. I take hold of your right hand. I say to you, ‘Do not be afraid. I will help you.’
