What’s So Amusing?

Cedar Point is considered to be the Cadillac of all amusement parks. With about seventy five rides no one can debate that achievement. 

If you love having your body slammed against metal along with your heart falling to the pit of your stomach then you found a little snippet of paradise in Sandusky, Ohio. 

Even if you don’t like amusement park rides just being there for the sights, and sounds and smells is a day well spent with family and friends.

There is definitely something enchanting walking around an amusement park looking airborne at the roller coasters in action. How did man ever come up with building something so large, and fast, and tall, and yikes!!!!

Can you hop on a roller coaster without thinking about the ups and downs of your own life?

Watching different people get on and off is part of the whole amusement park experience. Some laughing so hard wanting to turn around, and hop back on, some so happy to be on solid ground they swear never again. 

Being a spectator of sorts I can’t help but wonder how their life is going along in the real roller coaster of living.

We all live through good times and bad times, highs and lows, sickness and health, strengths and weaknesses, but for the most part we systematically live, day in day out.

Life in its own time has a way of coming full circle for all of us. Bad days evaporate into good days, carefree days lead into demanding days, young age carries on into old age, downs become ups, and the circle continues.

It is within this cycle of life where Jesus lives and breathes displaying undying love for all.

When you are down and out and stuck on what seems to be forever the bottom seat of the roller coaster of life don’t give up, help is just a prayer away. 

Times like this remember Jesus, remember His love, and remember His words. If you ask me for anything in my name, I will do it.” (John 14:14)  

Simply ask and you shall receive.  

That’s a ride to hope we don’t want to dismiss.
