Rock n Roller Coaster
When my sons were younger, we use to go to Disney World and one of their favorite rides was the Rock N Roller Coaster. R&R would move from Zero to 57 mph in 2.8 seconds. Not only is it fast but there are twists and turns and ups and downs.
Sounds a lot like life. But James tells us during these twists and turns we need to consider it pure joy. This is kind of upside down thinking to the way the world teaches us. But as followers of Jesus our thinking should be upside down because when we accept Christ we are no longer of this world.
So count it all joy when you face trials if you are on the rollercoaster get off plant your feet on the rock and go for a joyride.
