Bicycle Built for Two
Image by Jill Wellington on PixabayOn my way to work, I pulled to the stop sign in the neighborhood as a dad and his young daughter coasted by on a shiny, white, tandem bike. When they crossed the road, the dad looked back to make sure his daughter was okay. At that moment, I realized it was a picture of Jesus in our lives.
He loves and watches over us like this cautious dad did for his daughter. Our Father directs our paths. If our feet can't reach the pedals or we miss being in tune with His way, He gently urges us forward and redirects by His love and grace. We're connected. His Holy Spirit lives in us, as the frame ties the whole bicycle together. To protect us on the road we travel, the Bible is our roadmap and source of invaluable knowledge.
I shared this on the way to work with my wonderful friend Joy, who lifted my spirits as much as this bicycle rider analogy. I hope it puts a smile on your face as well.
Proverbs 3:5–6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding. Acknowledge him in all your ways, and he will make your paths straight."
What are some ways you find your moments with Jesus in your day?
