Well, we are entering that phase of our journey were I believe our bus driver may take us over a water fall and into some deep waters of a dark canyon or two where monsters lurk. Just warning you as I really don’t know when this is going to happen. I am only relaying things when he allows me to be the tour guide for a bit.
During these times where we enter into the deep waters a bit, you may see and hear monsters that may scare you a bit or even a lot. Don’t worry, none of them can touch you and you have us to help you. We are all together in this. They just look and sound scary and attempt to make us fearful. They know they can only really scare us if we run from them and jump out of the bus. I will explain more of what this means on and off during our time together. However, I just want to say that you want to try to remain in the safety of the bus. Even if you do run or fall out a few times (or get afraid by the monsters in the deep) our awesome bus driver (God himself) will still be HOLDING you during the time of your walk in the darkness. He actually allows this to happen until you and I learn to fully trust him and no longer be afraid of the monsters of the deep dark. He is teaching us full trust in his goodness.
Once we fully trust him, we can let go of everything we have clinged to for safety. For some of us it is money, status, careers, cars, husbands, fitness, addictions, etc. You name it, we ALL have things we cling to while we are learning to trust him. The monsters are very scary before we know him. Once we see how safe he is, we can give it ALL to him in his safe and STRONG hands. Then, you will stop falling out of the bus and getting beat around by the monsters of the deep. He may show you how they really can’t hurt you and if you are especially lucky he may show you how they actually for him but are merely a teaching tool.
Each one of us are different and he’s doing different things inside of each of us, but all of it is very good when he is done. He wants us to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride inside his “bus of love” called Christ. When the dragon and other monsters of the deep try to scare you, just smile and look at your bus driver. He has a wonderful journey for you and many worlds to explore with him.
