Recently we spent a couple of weeks at Quintana Park on the beach and to travel back and forth to work , I had to cross a couple of really high bridges. Now for those who do not know me very well may not realize I have dealt with the fear of driving over bridges all my life. It begins at the base of the bridge and as I begin to ascend I begin to hyperventilate, my heart begins to pound, my palms get sweaty and as I approach the top of the bridge my teeth are clenched so tightly my head begins to hurt. Then this thought goes through my mind…
“What if there is not another side”
I was on my way to work one morning and I began to ascend the monster bridge over the Brazos River it was like fireworks went off in my mind…Just as I would ask myself “what if there is not another side”, I realized I continue to drive over that bridge because I have to believe it is going to be there. Common sense, Right?….WRONG!!! It is FAITH!
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1
I had faith the other side of the bridge was going to be there.
Have you ever wondered, “What if there is not another side” meaning heaven? Well, let me ask you …WHAT IF THERE IS? Are you prepared?
For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
There you have it…you just have to believe in him…just like you have to believe there is going to be another side of the bridge!!! He loves you, He cares for you, He wants to rescue you!!!
HE IS THE BRIDGE TO THE OTHER SIDE!!!
I am now able to drive over the bridge without hyperventilating and sweating because KNOW there is another side!!!
