A Day with Joni ~ How Long Until We Get There?

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered Him, “You are the Christ.”
Mark 8:29

I was whining to a wise friend one day. I was telling her about a certain situation and set of circumstances I was enduring. I was complaining. I was certain God had looked the other way. Waah, waah, waah! You know what she said to me? “Just keep pedaling.” What? I asked her to explain.

She recalled riding on the back of a bicycle built for two. She kept asking questions like, “Where are we going? Why are we going this direction? How much longer is this going to take?” Finally, the person in the front – called the Captain – turned around and simply replied, “Just keep pedaling.” The person in the front seat knew where they were going, how to get there, and how long it would take. All they needed on a bicycle built for two, was two riders synchronized as they pedal. To stay on course, move properly and reach the place God has for us, we have to trust our Captain. Our answer may not come when we want it, and we may have to pedal uphill, but if we just keep peddling, we’ll get there … when we get there!

Heavenly Father – You are the Captain – my Captain. Will You help me be a better follower? Give me the grace and strength I need to pedal on, to persevere, trusting that You know the way and can get us there, by the best route possible. I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
