I must say: Life with You — “walking by faith” — is The Adventure of a Lifetime!
What are the metaphors that apply to what happened today? Something that could radically change my future? Being thrown a curve ball? Thrown for a loop? By something that came out of left field?
I like the baseball analogy. Reminds me of that sage old advice:
“You win some, you lose some, and some get rained out. [Then I added] But you dress for every game.”
I’m suiting up, Lord. I’m not quite sure who’s on first or what’s on second… reminds me of that hilarious Three Stooges routine. At least I know, with You, I am never “out of my league.” In fact, with You — Who makes all things possible — I am always batting 1000!
Stepping up to the plate… stepping out in faith, not unlike Indiana Jones when he stepped out into the open chasm and discovered…
“… He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand… Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.” (Psalm 40:2b,4a)
Amazing, Lord. Whatever happens, I am totally at peace.
“You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You.” (Isaiah 26:3)
Yes, Lord… In You I trust.
