Life’s Obstacle Courses and Roller-coasters

This is for all who have struggled through trauma in life. Life brings us many challenges like obstacle courses and many ups and downs like roller coasters. We may start out thinking that we are going to have fun then end up facing more difficulty than we can imagine… but every test that we overcome will become our testimony… just like mine.

Life’s obstacle courses and roller-coasters…
are thoughts that keep coming to me this week.
So it’s these tests and adventures…
that I will now come to you to speak.
For obstacle courses…
are like the tests that we go through.
And as we overcome various obstacles…
we see things from a different view.
And roller-coasters…
are like the ups and downs we face…
with various twists and turns…
as more fun and adventures we chase.
But these moments of fun…
get mixed in the trials of life…
and like the cycle of abuse…
we have to overcome various strife.
Now I was one of those adventurers…
who sought after some fun.
But I got trapped in the cycle of abuse…
before I realized it had even begun.
Like many teens who are bullied…
and feel like they don’t belong.
I started searching for friends…
then took a path that was wrong.
For so many of us are lonely…
and in search of someone to love…
then fall into these traps…
instead of seeking guidance from above.
And I had never heard…
those few words like most do…
and my heart just melted…
the first time I heard “love you!”
Then my roller-coaster really began…
and my obstacle course got steeper…
as the abuse began to escalate…
and I began to sink even deeper.
For all our trials through life…
are mixed with many ups and downs…
and as we get through each struggle…
is where overcoming is found.
But we are never alone…
and we don’t have to accept abuse…
for God has better plans for us…
and our testimonies He will use.
But don’t wait like me…
till you are broken and in desperation…
Turn to God first…
letting Him lead you to happiness and salvation.
