Last night we went for a family outing to check out the new playground at Pukekura Park. We picked up fish and chips on the way. The boys could hardly wait to check out all the cool new things that were there. Their favourite thing next to the flying fox was the water play area. They spent loads of time there sorting different ways to dam the flow and send it gushing down the hill.
As we moved around I sat to watch as the boys climbed aboard the spinning wheel for more fun. Not my thing I'm afraid as my head can't handle the spinning.
As I watched I saw how the boys could either sit on the mat or hold on to the ropes for all they were worth or if they wanted a rest could hold on to the pole in the centre and watch as the world went by.
It got me thinking. Life is just like this. Our world is a busy one. We rush about in our busyness trying to keep up with everything that is going on. It wasn't designed this way. What if for a moment you could stop and cling to the One who designed it instead of holding on for all you are worth and trying to fight it?
- Romans 12:2
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (NIV)
