the ride of your life

no, this isn't about my bike, or a car i wrecked, or a roller coaster, or anything else crazy like that. its about life and what we experience...and things we hardly ever experience.
there is something about life. it can't be expressed with words. it can only be felt. it is a power, a being inside that moves within. when it is stirred, it can take over you completely. it can change your mind even though it has been set a certian way for as long as you can remember. it can make you turn over control against your will. it lures you into your own mind to search and wander. it makes us realize all of the rubbish in our lives...and helps convince us to lay it at the foot of the cross and move on. it shows us that there is more to life then our own wants and desires, and that many times our wants and desires are what causes us to get pulled down. if we just let them go, things will be so much simpler.
but so many times we have the wrong view of letting go. we view it as just not caring or forgetting. but it is so much more at that. we have to litterally take it to God and tell him, "God, this is not my own. it is Your life that You created. You know exactly what i need to do, but i can't do it on my own. i need Your help, Your power. i need your Holy Spirit to give me the strength to put this behind me and move on with my life." and then, and only then, will your burden be lifted, the rubbish erased from your life. and God will take you up in His everloving arms, and give you......

......the ride of your life.
