“Stay in your seat come times of trouble. Its only people who jump off the roller coaster who get hurt.” Paul Harvey
It’s Palm Sunday, the day Jesus was hailed a hero as he entered Jerusalem. But, as a Christian, during this week I will also remember his persecution, death, mourning of his followers, sightings, all culminating in a joyous resurrection celebration next Sunday. Talk about a roller coaster ride!
Life’s like that for us too…not as dramatic or memorable but a roller coaster ride never the less. Perhaps you have had the life changing low of a stroke, mother loss, husband loss, divorce, child loss, the emotional devastation of war. As Paul Harvey says, stay in your seat, ride it out and envision a resurrection of sorts at the end.
Affirmation: I’m strong. I can ride out the storms of my life.
Coaching questions: What is “holding you in your seat?” What’s your vision at the end of the ride?
