Since everyone I know seems to feel like they’re pedaling uphill these days…I was delighted to find this short piece from David Jeremiah today.
Read…and pedal on!
An unknown author once described his journey of giving God control of his life as a tandem bike ride with Christ in the front. He said, “When I had control, I knew the way. It was rather boring, but predictable. But when He took the lead, He knew delightful long trails up mountains, and through rocky places at breakneck speeds; it was all I could do to hang on!! Even though it looked like madness, He said, ‘Pedal!’ I was worried and anxious and asked, ‘Where are you taking me?’ He laughed and didn’t answer, and I started to learn to trust. And I’m beginning to enjoy the cool breeze on my face with my delightful constant companion, Christ. And when I’m sure I just can’t do anymore, He just smiles and says, ‘Pedal.'”
Though we may fear and doubt where God is taking us, when we give Him control, our life will never be the same. We’ll begin to find adventure in the midst of adversity, and peace during times of pain. All we have to do is let Him steer our life while we simply pedal.
Give your life to God; He can do more with it than you can!
Dwight L. Moody
