The Sound of A Train
The Sound of A Train
Recently I moved, and now I live in a small southern town. This is a town where trains use intersecting tracks and areas of my state are served by the trains that criss-cross in this sleepy southern town. I can hear the trains as they pass through this community; for they have to sound the horns to warn the citizens of the town. There are more trains passing through here because of the different parts of the state serviced from upper and lower South Carolina.
To most people, the trains would be annoying; but to me they are a blessing. Each time I hear the sound of the passing trains, I hear the horn in mono-syllables sharing the word “God”. To me this is a very comforting sound; for I know one day, I will see Our Lord coming to rapture His church with the greatest sound of all as He announces His coming. So I delight in each sound of the horn. God graciously has made sure that the trains’ sounds do not interrupt my sleep; for they do not wake me as they constantly roll along the rails. In addition, I find great comfort in the sound of the train; for me, the sound of the trains is a constant reminder of my God and all that He has done, does do, and will do for me.
In this, I am reminded that we can choose in this life how we view anything. We can take the positive or the negative as our chosen version. It is my prayer that I can find the positive because the negative has only unhappy written across its face. I prefer to see the positive; for the greatest positive of all was the cross and Our Lord’s sacrifice of Himself out of love for each of us.©
