34. The ride of your life

My wish is that each of you will find your own unique purpose. I want you all to stand up in the mornings and be excited to start your day. But I know it takes time and I know that the Lord's timing is not our timing. Be patient, remember that the Lord is never late. If He wants you to start, you will know it. He will be on time. Just keep on believing.

I would like to finish off this series of 'Purpose in Life' with just a last couple of ideas that I would like to share with you.

At the hand of our example of the fun park, the Lord showed me a few things. Firstly He illustrated to me that once you have started with your purpose and you are on your roller-coaster, remember one thing. There will be a lot of ups and downs and round twirls, but it will be all worth it. Just do not get off the roller-coaster! Don't let the ups discourage you. You will experience so much. Even during the 'ups' you will have joy and peace that the world cannot understand, because you can know that the roller-coaster is in God's Hands.

Secondly, once you are in the roller-coaster, the Holy Spirit will strap you in and lead you where you need to go. Once you started, one thing will lead to another as the roller-coaster knows its way. Things will be pointed out to you as you go along. You will not necessarily know the end once you start, but everything will fall into place as long as you are still strapped in by the Holy Spirit.

And lastly, whether you get on the specific ride planned especially for you or not. You can walk around and arrive at the end destination  (I assume now that you are a new born Christian and have accepted Jesus as your Savior), along with everyone else. You will still go to heaven and be with our Savior. But you would have missed so much. You would have missed the ride of your life.

I wish you well on your journey of finding what the Lord wants you to do. I spent a lot of time before the Lord unveiled mine to me, but it was worth every second of it! I don't know all the intricacies of what it all involves or what small turns I will need to take. But one thing I do know; I am on the rollercoaster and I am on my way. The details will be given to me along the way, but for now I am enjoying the ride.

Lord Jesus, You are awesome! Thank you for giving each of us a ride to climb on to. Thank you that You are there to strap us in and be with us every step of the way. We love You. Amen
