Jesus' Roller Coaster
Think about it. If Jesus is, indeed, where He thinks He is—in you, in me—and our days are full of crazy ups and downs, ins and outs, rough corners over there and over here, and lots of “Aaaaaahhh!” worthy moments, then don’t you think that He might have planned it that way? Isn’t it possible that He planned to experience everything just as you do, inside of you, in the same way?
You know: morning drudgery, coffee, BACON, pastry, fruit, blender (protein powder?), work, lunch, work, weirdos and whackos that you have to deal with, frustration, grief, excitement, sickness, expectation, disappointment, satisfaction, fear, dinner (wine?), Monday night football, Downton Abbey re-runs, The Walking Dead, Netflix, or maybe a good book, fatigue, wonder (“Am I okay today, Jesus? Are you with me?”), and then sleep.
Yes. All of it. You are okay. He is with you and He is in you. Through it all. No matter what. And, one day, the two of you will enjoy talking face-to-face all about the crazy thrill-ride you were for Him. That will be an incredible day for Him and for you—roller coaster breath.
Until then, He’s riding in you.
