Dear nobody, it’s been fun.
Dear nobody, it’s been real.
Dear nobody, it’s been exciting and exhilarating but I think it’s time to bid you adieu.
All rides aren’t meant for you…in this case for me.
We had lots of ups, but sadly, more downs.
I forgot to read the sign that says you must be this amount of crazy to ride this ride. Possess this amount of brokenness and this low level of self-esteem and self-worth to match and be able to tolerate the twists and turns that come with this ride. Why oh why did I not read the sign? Every ride comes with one.
In fact, life comes with signs. Stop. Yield. One Way. Dead End. Do Not Enter. Detour. They’re for our own good. To protect us. Some signs even come with pretty little pictures and colors for those of us who don’t really like to read. Yes, these signs can be annoying. They slow you down, make you turn around or change direction. But ultimately caution you to what’s coming. They bring about order. Imagine life without them. It would be pure chaos and confusion.
“Let all things be done decently and in order.” 1 Corinthians 14:40 KJV
So if the DMV deems it important enough to test you on these beloved signs before you’re given a license to drive, how much more important should it be to ensure your “ride or die” is truly your “ride or die”? After all, it’s holding precious cargo.
And although you don’t need a license to ride a ride…you do need one for other things like entering into a lifelong committed relationship…otherwise known as marriage. Isn’t that what this is all about?
Which should further impress upon you the importance of paying attention to the signs.
Let’s take a pop quiz. Does your ride lie, is it manipulative, deceptive, display signs of untrustworthiness or character issues?
Think before you answer. Loneliness and delayed promises from God can often blur your vision. You may be taking this quiz with rose colored glasses or even worse, someone else’s.
Take this quiz with a clear more precise lens. A lens that provides focus and perspective..a lens found and hidden in the Word of God.
Are you ready to take the quiz…the not so pop quiz…this seemingly recurring test in your life?
Answer carefully, this could be the difference between life and death. Not literally or physically but then again…
“…I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 NKJV
Did you pass? Don’t worry if you didn’t. God is a redeemer of time and freely gives His grace and mercy.
So study up, take notes because no ride is worth ignoring the signs.
Be Bold, Be You, Be Blessed!
