This past Wednesday my church had a Tribulation Trail. It was composed of 6 different scenes scattered all over the grounds of the church outside. The scenes covered the rapture, the antichrist, the mark of the beast and the hardships of the 7 years of tribulation. It was very good and made it real.
When I say we covered alot of the church grounds, I mean all over. We went from the old church front, to the woods across, to the new church front, to the basketball court, to the barn, and out to the deep woods. It took me a little longer to get to each scene than others but my wheelchair gave new meaning to 4wheel drive. It was a rough and bumpy ride but the trail was well worth it. People waited patiently on me and made a path through the crowd so I could see everything.
I had expected to skip the last scene because it was deep in the woods down a trail. As it was time to go on or turn back, Phillip said ''c'mon you've made it this far, you can do it.'' So I did press on and finish the trail.
This wasn't a race for anyone but did turn out to be a test of endurance for me. Maybe my efforts will not only be of benefit to me but show as a witness to others to not let circumstances defeat your desire to participate.
