Listen to today’s Warm and Fuzzy here!
Job 30:22 says, “You lift me up to the wind and cause me to ride on it…”
This is the Captain speaking. There’s a lot of weather around Denver, so you might want to buckle up early as we try to land.”
“Whoa! What was that? Try to land? I dutifully fastened my seat belt. We were bouncing around like a Chihuahua on caffeine. Finally the runway came into sight. We were still all a jolt, but at least we were on the ground.
Wrong! The pilot aborted the landing and we went screaming skyward. After a few minutes of roller-coaster action, the pilot informed us that we were going to Colorado Springs. Some people applauded. No one complained about the abrupt delay.
How many times my life has met with rough weather, usually without the warning to buckle up. Birth, death, joy, sorrow-they pop up like a sudden thunderstorm. Sometimes you land. Sometimes you try to land, then take off again. Sometimes you end up in a completely different place, and there’s nothing to do but call on the Almighty and ride it out.
