Some of you may know that I am a cyclist. This Saturday I will be participating in RAIN (Ride Across Indiana) - the ride is 160 miles - One day, One way. Any prayers you could offer this week as I prepare as well as on Saturday as I ride would be greatly appreciated. I will be spending 8 + hours in the saddle. That's a lot of time on a bike. So far this year my longest ride is a century (100 miles) It's going to be hard, but I know that I can do all things with Christ - He Is My Strength! I am excited and nervous. On the road it will be me, 1500 + other cyclists and God.
A bike ride is kind of like life... exhilarating, painful, fun, full of twists and turns, ups and downs, but with a wonderful reward at the end. It's funny, no matter how difficult the ride... no matter how much pain I endure during a ride - it's always worth it in the end. Just like life's lessons... no matter how much pain... God makes it all worth it in the end. It's to His glory. And it's to His glory that I ride this weekend! Because of the gifts He has given me I am able to do a ride like this. There are times when I am on my bike hurting and I pray over and over, be my pedals Lord, be my pedals.
As I prepare I will be in prayer and in His Word. I love the chorus to the song Word of God Speak... and since I am doing a ride called RAIN - I pray that His Word pours like rain into my heart, mind, soul and speaks to me along the way... and that I can enjoy the beauty of His majesty on this one day event in my journey with Him.
Word of God speak Would You pour down like rain Washing my eyes to see Your majesty To be still and know That You're in this place Please let me stay and rest In Your holiness Word of God speak (from Mercy Me's Word of God Speak)

I love to share my home, my heart and my faith.
As I journey with the Lord through this earthly life it is my prayer that I come to know Him deeper and deeper each and every day.
