I love watching toy trains. I love watching the train go round and round a track especially if it’s under a Christmas tree!! The sound of the “chug chug” of the train and the sparkle of tiny little lights glowing bring a smile to my face and a warmth to my heart.
It’s so aggravating though when the train gets derailed and the normal roll of the train wheels is interrupted. But the good news is that when the train gets set upright again, it hugs the tracks and gets back in rhythm.
That’s how our lives roll. We chug along enjoying the ride and all the sights and sounds along the path. Sometimes we get comfortable and something we do takes our eyes off of the right path and we get derailed. It may take a while for us to get back on the track and start rolling again. The good news is that we have Someone who can set us upright and put us back on the track.
Sin derails us. Forgiveness from God puts us back on track. I’m so glad to be on the train to heaven and even when it gets derailed by something I do because of taking my eyes off of the path, I am thankful for the ultimate Conductor to put the train back on the right track.
Won’t you join me on this joyful ride? The seats are unlimited. The destination is to die for. Grab your coat and sit down. All Aboard!
