14 July - Rollercoaster Rides

Today was our daughter Shara's birthday and her request was to go to Movie world to ride roller-coasters.

The thing is I'm not a huge fan of these terrifying contraptions of height, speed, and loud pitched squealing. However I chose to go with the flow which resulted in a lot of squealing, hilarious laughter and "oh my goodness what are we doing moment". But I like to try and say yes to things rather than no, so I chose to do the rollercoaster new things..

Doing new things can actually help to make new pathways in our brains. It also opens us up to new possibilities for God to move in our lives.

For if we keep doing everything the same then over time we can close ourselves off to life and having a reason to get out of bed in the morning. Instead we can get as I say “musty, crusty and rusty”.

What we do everyday in our lives affects our hearts, minds, attitudes, and spirits.

Isaiah 35 in the Bible always encourages me. It is a proclamation of new life from God, to strengthen us where we may feel weak or fearful.

A desert symbolizes our life without God or areas of our life that have become barren and a wasteland. Yet God says that the desert will blossom as the rose, like rivers in the desert will He pour out His spirit on those who are thirsty.

The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, Even with joy and singing… Strengthen the weak hands, And make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who are fearful-hearted, “Be strong, do not fear! (Isaiah 35:1-7)

Be encouraged today to allow God to bring new things into your life and when he does step out and try them, even if they might scare you a little.

He is the God of new beginnings. He loves to shower us with blessings and good things, and you might just be surprised how much fun he will bring into your life if you choose to make it a practice to say yes more and be open to new things. - Plus after today, I think he could be a fan of rollercoasters too.

Behold I will do a new thing, now it springs forth; shall you not know it.” (Isaiah 43:19)

Prayer: Thank you God that you love me. please ti do something new today a push me out of my comfort zone. Restore, renew and begin something new in me today. In Jesus Name. Amen
