2018 July 14-Lamentations 3:22-23 ESV
‘ The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.’
Lord Hear My Prayer:
For all out there seeking a way.
Yesterday, I drove down to Weatherford, Texas for the Peach Pedal. I was doing well, had good pace, great weather, until the last rest stop. I started to feel a cramp in my right calf, I stretched, drank more water, and ate pickles but I knew I it was only going to get hotter. Then, I got started and missed my turn. I must of gone about 2 miles before I realized there were just three of us. I did not memorize the maps as I was so used to seeing people all around. A small part of me panicked, but I did’t want the other two to notice it. I track my progress through and app and realized we weren’t far from a turn which had us going the way we started and back towards the start/finish. The panic had not really left, but they needed me because I knew the ‘way.’ I was by far the slowest and less in shape, but we finished together. Not long after crossing the finish line, my right calf cramped and I got off and walked. The two went off. As I was leaving, one of the two, an Air Force lady, recognized me in the car and I rolled down my window. We said our goodbyes for now, but I sure wish I see her again.
I had no reason to panic because I knew I was being watched and cared for. No matter what, I felt a mercy from my two riding friends and from God in that I knew I would get home safely. This morning, the day after, before I set out into the world, I need to find greatness in my faith because I am Loved.
You are God indeed!
Peace from the DFW Metroplex,
