Terrain is defined as a stretch of land – especially regarding its physical features. There are several different types of terrain in life. It could be a wet surface, a rocky surface, or a surface covered with snow and ice. I was reminded of different Terrain yesterday. We had a training time on the Ford Bronco at Krause Family Ford.
One of the unique features of the Bronco is that it is equipped with GOAT modes. That stands for Goes Over Any Terrain.
As I thought about that later, we all need several modes of travel cause life has different terrain.
At times, there is the terrain of tears. Lots of people have shed tears of sadness during death or disappointment.
There is the terrain of disappointment. People let us down, a spouse or boyfriend or girlfriend leaves us.
There is the terrain of vanished dreams. Someone had a dream of starting a business or accomplishing a goal and it didn’t work out.
There is the terrain of financial hardship. Maybe someone. Has gone through bankruptcy.
There is the terrain of sickness. I spoke with a lady recently who had experienced lots of sickness recently.
The terrain we travel on isn’t always smooth. Sometimes it’s bumpy. While the Bronco is equipped with modes to help you on different types of terrain, the best way to handle rough terrain is with the Lord. The Lord promises to walk with us over the different terrain of life.
I Corinthians 10:13 says, “No temptation has overtaken you except something common to mankind; and God is faithful, so He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.”
The Lord promises to talk with us, to be with us over any terrain of life.
