    Default The Road of Life.....

    I found this in the bottom of my cedar chest today...I'd forgotten about it. It's always been a favorite of mine....so I thought I would share....

    Hope this encourages you.............

    THE ROAD OF LIFE

    At first, I saw God as my observer, my judge.
    Keeping track of the things I did wrong, so as to
    know whether I merited heaven or hell when I die.

    He was out there sort of like a president.
    I recognized His picture when I saw it,
    but I really didn't know Him.

    But later on, when I met Christ, it seemed as
    though life were rather like a bike ride, but it
    was a tandem bike, and I noticed that Christ was
    in the back helping me pedal.

    I don't know just when it was that He suggested
    we change places, but life has not been the
    same since.

    When I had control, I knew the way. It was
    rather boring, but predictable...
    It was the shortest distance between two points.

    But when He took the lead, He knew delightful
    long cuts, 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 worried and was anxious and asked, "Where ae
    you taking me?" He laughed and didn't answer,
    and I started to learn to trust.

    I forgot my boring life and entered into the
    adventure. And when I'd say, "I'm scared,"
    He'd lean back and touch my hand.

    He took me to people with gifts that I needed,
    gifts of healing, acceptance and joy. They gave me
    gifts to take on my journey, my Lord's and mine.

    And we were off again. He said, "Give the gifts
    away; they're extra baggage, too much weight."
    So I did, to the people we met, and I found that in
    giving I received, and still our burden was light.

    I did not trust Him, at first, in control of my life. I
    thought He'd wreck it; but He knows bike secrets,
    knows how to make it bend to take sharp corners,
    knows how to jump to clear high rocks, knows how
    to fly to shorten scary passages.

    And I am learning to shut up and pedal in the
    strangest places, and I'm beginning to enjoy the
    view and the cool breeze on my face with my
    delightful constant companion, Jesus Christ.

    And when I'm sure I just can't do anymore, He just
    smiles and says........"Pedal."
