“Be strong and courageous; do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the Lord your God is the one who goes with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.” Prayers for strength and safety during today’s ride.
This morning when I finally decided to roll out for another rain filled day I was greeted by these words from my wife. She often sends encouraging words and scripture. Today’s message came at a time when I began to question my mental and physical ability to continue riding .
I began to think of why I’ve participated on 4 of these adventures and I am reminded that many wake up with more challenging situations to deal with than mine. Many lack roof over their head and food to sustain themselves. This continues to drive me. I will strive to help whoever, wherever, and whenever I can. So,”off we go!”
