Keep on Pedaling

I was having a really low day and reached out to a friend of mine for support. I shared how I was feeling out of control, lost, confused and overwhelmed -  she comforted me with the following metaphor…think of a tandem and imagine when you came into this life you were in a basket allowing the steering and pedaling to take you wherever you were going. As you go through life, and depending on your individual circumstances; you took on the pedaling and the steering of the “tandem”. What life is asking of you right now is to let go of the steering and just keep on pedaling and trust that you will be taken care of by God. The unanswered questions, conflicting emotions remained yet I got back on the tandem and just kept on pedaling and tried to let go. She gave me the gift of comfort as I realized all I was being asked to do at that moment was pedal on and allow the steering to be done for me. Thank you Lisa – you did good!

A poem of inspiration

Jesus dreamt
Of a world
Of one
Global family
Each person
And blood family
Being a gift
From his Abba
Attempting to
Overcome the
Barriers of
Race, colour,
Sex and creed.
Locally we
Come together
With our individualities
Our languages
And cultures

Separate and distinct….
But there are
The obstacles
Of not knowing
Each other
And therefore
Experiencing a degree
Of unsureness
And fear.
We pass different ones
Sometimes as shadows …
Each of us
So tends to
Be centred on self
And yet how
We hunger for
Change, conversion
Of our hearts
And minds.
