Praise Him in the Storm

Recently, we bought a Casting Crown CD and one of our favorite songs is, "Praise You Through This Storm." Oh, how this song speaks volumes to me.

How many times have you prayed to be delivered from a situation, or for God to help you through it? You pray and pray and pray and it seems like the situation is going on forever, and even getting worse? The harder you pray, the harder it gets. I've been there.

It's taken me some time in my walk with God, but I've learned that there are some obstacles and situations that we are going to have to walk through. There is no going around it, under it, over it, or avoiding it. This is like Paul's thorn in the side and God said, "My grace is sufficient for you." This means... (Read More)

This weekend I made a few discoveries about myself. As I soared over the earth at so many miles an hour with the blood rushing to my head, I discovered my body doesn't quite have the same reaction as it used to. The second thing I discovered is that I pray sincerely harder while being strapped in to the roller coaster.

We've always enjoyed thrill rides, and so now that we live in Charlotte, we had to buy season passes to Carowinds. The third thing we discovered is our nine-year-old likes all the roller coasters she's tall enough to ride. There was one exception. She's tall enough to ride one coaster, but because it has loops, she wouldn't ride it.

My husband tried to talk me into riding the Boarg Assimilator, but I wouldn't do it. I told him God expects me to use the mind He gave me. I almost passed out riding Top Gun. I rode it several years ago and thought there was nothing to it. What was I thinking back then? The only other thing I can think of is allergies. I have a lot of head conjestion due to allergies right now. That may be why I almost passed out on a ride that I thought was nothing. The reason I say this is because I've flown on planes several times and never had a problem. The one time I got on a plane with a sinus infection, I thought my head was going to explode. The next time I got on a plane (coming back), I didn't feel that way. I was fine. I may be willing to try Top Gun again after my allergies clear up, but I don't know about that Boarg Assimilator. I don't like the idea of flying on my back going backwards.

I wonder what God thinks about us praying on theme park rides? I'm sure I'm not the only one who does this. Do you?
