Adult Swim!

June 27, 2008

These are two of the worst words you can ever hear as a kid.  This means that the longest fifteen minutes of your life are about to begin.

Who decided that adults get the pool to themselves for fifteen whole minutes! you think.  Look, the pool is empty!  Can’t we get back in now?  The adults don’t even appreciate this!

As I grew up, I started realizing that there were reasons for the adult swim.  The pool needed to be looked over, to make sure that everything was OK.  Lifeguards needed a break so they could be fully alert.  Kids are taken out of the pool every 45 minutes to make sure they don’t get too cold.  There are many good reasons for this to exist that you never understood at the time.

Likewise, God does many things in our lives that make no sense to us when they happen.  Much like adult swim, you don’t see a good reason for this.  You just wish it could be over.  I mean, haven’t you waited long enough?  There is no purpose to this!

God is working all things for the good of those who love him.  This includes the hard circumstances that seem pointless to you, and that you wish were over.  However, in the end, you will see clearly what God was doing, and you will rejoice in his good plan and purpose.
