We bought a tandem bicycle and had it about a year. The day we bought it, we took it for a ride in a park, and then never rode it again. It’s my own fault because I didn’t like the feeling of not being in control, plus I couldn’t see over Richard’s head. We sold it to a couple who will probably ride it until the wheels fall off! Life with Jesus is like being in the second seat of a tandem bicycle, if you truly love and trust Him. He controls the direction you go, you don’t get a full picture of what’s coming because He’s blocking your view, and He’s the one pedaling the most. Our best ride is when we take our feet off the pedals and let Him take complete control! Our worse ride is when we are the ones in the first seat, controlling the direction we go, and doing all the pedaling; we get worn out and lost. Relinquish control of your destiny to Jesus; He’s in control anyway, so why fight it?
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will exalt you. James 4:10
