Tilt-A-Whirl Trust

Description

No matter what situations you've been through, you can trust in the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. We can let go of things of the past and learn to trust Him more.

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:4-6 (ESV)

I recall as a child losing the contents of my lunch while on a tilt-a-whirl carnival ride. As the world spun around me, and while I prayed and sprayed random strangers, my pastor who was nearby could be heard laughing and praising the Lord.

Thirty years later, I have not forgotten that crazy day. The impact of the pastor’s reaction has far outlasted the embarrassment I felt as a young tween. Here was a man who knew God. Who walked with Him and trusted in his control over things uncontrollable—like the centrifugal force shower of a child’s vomit. Oh to be so close to Him and to laugh at life’s foibles!

As I study the Word, searching for Him, I am being transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit. Seeing His character, I am learning to let go and to trust him more. He is worthy to be praised—sometimes even with laughter—through the storms of life. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand.
