Keep Peddling

From the Publisher


Many Christmas’ ago, the big gift under the tree for my son Jonathan was his first bike. Not long after that, he experienced the freedom- or should we say fear- of “No Training Wheels.” He wanted to ride his bike- but he did not. A wide grin would cross his face as he would find himself peddling on his own. Then, a look of terror would strike as he realized- he was peddling on his own. He would begin to look down or stop peddling. If you’ve ever tried to teach a child how to ride a bike you know the rest… Thank God for bike helmets!

It provided me with a good reminder of how God wants us to face the challenges of life. First, we must prepare ourselves as much as possible. Like the all-important bike helmet, the study of the Word will protect us on the toughest rides. In the midst of a challenge, we must remember to simply keep our eyes on Him. And finally, when we begin to have those doubts about whether “we can do it” we must remind ourselves, “we don’t have to”—God is in control! Keep peddling!

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year from Our Family to Yours!
