Isaiah 60:1 Arise, my people! Let your light shine for all the nations to see! For the glory of the Lord is streaming from you.
Since we have been here at Chaffey Dam, Jack and I have been riding our bikes quite a lot. The roads in and around the recreation area of the dam aren’t that great, well, some of them are more overgrow tracks than roads, with large stones and worn away pot holes, and the occasional tree root. I have slipped and slid and wobbled around but, thank goodness I haven’t fallen off. Or maybe I should say Thank God. It occurred to me while we were riding this morning that God is with me all the time, helping me, protecting me, making my day brighter and safer. I have a lot of time to think and talk to God whilst we are riding as Jack is much fitter and stronger than me and is usually a good 100 metres or more ahead, finding a nice shady tree to wait for me to catch up every now and then. I don’t mind riding by myself as, like I said it gives me time to just think and talk to the Lord. Anyway I am wondering off. What I was thinking about this morning whilst riding was all the times when we head off I say a little prayer that I will stay on the bike and not tumble over the stones and gravel and injury myself! I realised this morning that I have probably been unaware of the number of times God has helped me stay up right when I do slip and slide and wobble but don’t tumble! It also occurred to me that I am probably not aware at just how many times during my day to day life God has intervene in some small way to save me from falling! He keeps my life on track and safe because I am precious to Him, wow! Thank you Lord. God loves us so much and He wants us to enjoy a good, no, a great life, shining the light of His glory where ever we go with people we meet, testifying to His goodness and His love for us.
Love and hugs and
