Roller Coaster Ride

Posted by Soldier for Christ on November 2, 2012

rollercoaster

In the blink of an eye it will all be over

This rollercoaster ride that goes higher and lower

 

Each time it goes ‘round our stomachs do flops

We’re high on the hills but we hate when it drops

 

And just when we think that it might finally end

The darned thing revs up and we begin to ascend

 

Oh, Lord, do tell, for You are all-knowing

Will this craziness end when we begin slowing?

 

Or will You shut it all down only when we start calling

Screaming Your name in the middle of falling?

 

It’s hard not to know what’s coming up next

We’re racking our brains but left quite perplexed

 

We’re prepared for the bends for what surprises await

But we’re tired and weak and in a vulnerable state

 

It’s tough to hang on when our belts are all worn

As resistance gets stronger they become torn

 

Will you press the stop button just when they break

And catch us mid air, is that when you’ll take?

 

Our Father You are we are singing your song

And we hope and we pray that You wont be too long

 

So around every corner and down every hill

We will strengthen our belts, hanging on for you still

 

We will brace and endure these tracks through the night

For Your Son did provide for our soul its own light

 

Brightly we’ll shine as we are whipped all around

We’ll brighten the night and spread love abound

 

And when the morning does come and another day starts

We’ll continue this ride with wide open hearts

 

We’ll fight till the end for Jesus we’ll stay

We’ve surrendered it all to You and Your way

 

But until that great day, Lord, keep us all strong

So we can live for you Glory leading others who belong

 

We’ll see You one day in the blink of an eye

And rejoice as Your Kingdom when we meet in the sky

 

All For Your Glory!

- T.S.   I love you
