RIDING ON FAITH A little older and much wiser and according to God’s Word, I have a clearer understanding of what and why I was taken into captivity,. WHAT? 1 Peter 5:-8 “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary, the devil, like a roaring lion walks about, seeking whom he may devour.” WHY? 1 Corinthians 13:11 “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.” In my encounter with eternity, I became a man.” The highway that stretched out before me began its slow decline. My destination target was an estimated 12 miles. It had been an eventful, yet tiring day and I was ready for the road to end. As I watched the last ribbon of the pink horizon close its eyes, I spotted the Fright Night billboard with it’s living-dead freaks, ghosts and morbid ghouls, daring the brave to come for the most horrifying fright night of life . A large flashing arrow pointed downward with the words, “Where the road starts.” As icy chills raced from my spine to the top of my head I shuddered, and said, ,”You don’t really get it!” It’s when the Spirit of Death Stoops down in your face, You’ve chosen your place of abode; Your feet feel the heat Of the place they call hell; And you’ve come to the end of the road. I thank God daily, for my one last chance. Catch You In The Wind Pastor Pickle -Wind Rider Thunder Roads Magazine of OK/AR 33
