~Dede's Walk With God~

At first , I saw God as my observer, my judge, keeping track of the things
I did wrong, so as to know whether I merited heaven or hell when I die.
He was out there sort of like a president... I recognized His picture when
I saw it but I really didn't know Him.

But later on when I met Christ, it seemed as though life was rather like a
bike ride, but it was a tandem bike, and I noticed that Christ was in the
back helping me pedal. I don't know just when it was that He suggested
that we change places, but life has not been the same since.

When I was in control, I knew the way. It was rather boring, but predictable
and it was the shortest distance between two points. But when He took the
lead, He knew delightful long cuts, up mountains, and through rocky places at
breakneck speeds. It was all I could do to hang on.

Even though it looked like madness, He said, "Pedal!" I worried and was
anxious and asked, "Where are you taking me?" He laughed and didn't
answer, and I started to learn to trust. I forgot my boring life and entered
into the adventure, and when I'd say, "I'm scared," He'd lean back and
touch my hand. I gained love, peace, acceptance and joy; gifts to take me on
my journey, My Lord's and mine. And we were off again.

He said, Give the gifts away. They're extra baggage, too much weight." So
I did, to the people we met, and I found in giving I received, and still our
burden was light.

I did not trust Him, at first, in control of my life. I thought He's wreck it; but
He knows bike secrets, knows how to make it bend to take sharp corners, knows
how to jump to clear high rocks knows how to fly to shorten, scary passages.
And I am learning to shut up and pedal in the strangest places, and I'm
beginning to enjoy the view and the cool breeze on my face with my delightful
constant companion, Jesus Christ.

And when I'm sure I just can't do it anymore, He just smiles and say..."Pedal."
