One of the things I pray in the morning is thanking the Lord for going before me, and thanking Him for making a way where there is no way. He always makes a crooked road straight.
I believe that God goes before us no matter what we’re doing, as long as we have faith in Him.
I’m so glad I said that prayer today.
I had to drop my car off at the shop today because the engine light kept popping on, and it smelled like burnt oil.
It was a beautiful 72-degree morning with a little breeze. After I dropped the girls off at school, I drove to the shop with my youngest.
I chose not to wait for my car with my child because– who wants to stay in the car shop with a two-year-old and wear a mask? No thank you.
I decided to unhook my bike from my van and ride my bike home!
So off I went, with my Fitbit watch on, and my youngest on the backseat.
I took the back road to be safe so that I wouldn’t cut through neighborhoods. This way, I was on the sidewalk most of the time.
As I peddled my way home, the weight of my son and the breeze both tried to hold me back, but I fought through.
After 4 miles in 35 minutes, we made it home. I looked at my Fitbit watch, and I burned over 300 calories!
My son had such a great time that he did not want to stop. But mommy was done after 4 miles. Lol.
Oh, I forgot to mention that my gears were stuck on seven which is the hardest to pedal. And I don’t even go biking that often, especially not over 2 miles.
But it was nice to push me to hit a goal. I was very proud of myself! Thank you, Lord, for leading the way!
Is there something that you need to push yourself in your life? Do you have goals that you want to meet? Why not start hitting those small goals and help you reach your big goals faster?
We would love to hear what your goals are. Please share below in the comments.
”The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8
“I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron . . . That you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel” (Isaiah 45: 2,3. NKJV)
Lord, thank you for always going before me, always making a plan for my day, so I don’t have to depend on my own strength to push through my hurdles.
In Jesus’s name
