When the Coaster Gets StuckJason Fox Folk singer/songwriter John Prine wrote these lyrics: “That’s the way the world goes ‘round / You’re up one minute and the next you’re down / It’s a half a cup of water and you think you’re gonna drown / That’s the way the world goes ‘round.” The song was popular. People could relate. One day we’re down and depressed by struggles with no end in sight. The next day we’re excited because things are great, but anxious because we don’t know how long the good time will last. Thankfully, God is a constant source of help through life’s ups and downs.
