The Amusement Park Called Life

 We are living in a time of the struggle. The struggle isn’t just to keep you from enjoying what you have, but it’s to keep you from what God has for you. You have to know your worth. God began to speak to me in an unusual way, about the struggle. He first asked me a few questions. Some, I assumed He already knew the answer to, but was testing me. The question was, “Are you my child?” I laughed and said, “Well, yes Lord, why should you ask such a question as this?” He led me to the word, “Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6 Many of you thought this reflects what we should do as parents in our homes, but this is actually a lot deeper to me. God showed me in a vision of a man of authority. The man was dressed in armor. He stood with such authority. He walked with his shoulders back, head up and with so much confidence. Before him were little children playing. It seems as though it was in a park, because the kids seem to be so busy and excited there. The man walked over to the kids and they gathered around him. They sat before him. They listened to him. I began to see the influence that he had on them. Even with the amusement and noise around them, they sat, listened, and heard. Many of us are running around in the amusement park of life. We are running in confusion, searching for God and we have gotten caught up with the noise, in our ears.
