I love this picture. It was taken as I walked out the front door and saw our 10 year old granddaughter riding her bicycle. While there were storm clouds in the distance they did not matter to her. The fact that she had fallen before did not hold her back. Strong, determined and fearless she pedaled forward, confident that she would make it to the top. The light shining on her made me smile because I knew; Jesus was right beside her cheering her on.
If you are on a road that is long and feels all uphill, Jesus is with you too. Though the sky may look dark and the pitch may seem steep, be encouraged. You are not alone.
Thank You Jesus, that no matter what type of road we are on, we can know that you are near. If it is paved, You are with us. Rock, sand or gravel, You are ever so close. You are watching ahead if it is curvy with a limited sight of distance, or straight with clear vision far ahead. Wide or narrow, You are guiding our way. It is so amazing to know no matter where we might find ourselves, Jesus, You are always there.
