i've determined that regardless of the plans i've made, the most i can sometimes do is decide hands up or hands holding on. you know, just like on the roller coaster.
everyone says the ride is more fun with your hands up. i tried it on the batman ride at six flags and they were right. of course i was strapped in over the shoulders with my feet dangling, so really, how would i fall out?
i think God cares for us in the same way. He knows us, He loves us, He protects us and He doesn't ask us to ride hands up without knowing we are safe in his loving arms.
"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 a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
so here goes, hands off the rail, wind in your face, turn loose and see how wonderful the ride can be!
