Someone got an owee!

It is no surprise to many of you that my husband and I like to go biking.  Yes he is faster and has more endurance than I do, but we love to spend time together tooling around.  Sometimes he even let's me pretend that I can go faster than him!

After a steaming hot ride to Rockford, Mi. we found a nice shady place to rest before we began our trek back. I opted to go around the grassy area and my husband rode straight through the grass. As I turned the corner, I noticed that the man sitting at the bench was smirking in my husbands direction. Focusing my gaze towards my husband , I saw a man clad in biking gear, lying on the grass with 1 foot up in the air , his bike was on top of him and a kind man  rushing to his side. Instantly I knew what had occurred.

Fall over!

Fall over occurs when we are not doing the right thing. We are clipped into our pedals when we ride. This means that to put your foot down onto the ground you must twist your foot and unclip the shoe from the pedal. Sometimes when we do this it is easy to forget the other foot. This is unfortunate especially when you come to a complete stop, because if you begin to lean in the opposite direction it is very difficult to quickly get your other foot out!  Usually it ends up being a rather embarrassing situation! Thus the owee!

My poor husband landed on the roots of the tree!  He has the fall over marks to prove it!

What I learned

Sometimes we try to pick and choose the things that we want to follow Jesus in. When we do this we are like my poor husband who did only doing 1 thing. When we follow only some of His commands we too may experience fall over. 

There is only one way to avoid spiritual fall over... Follow his commands.
  • Following His commands results in a blessing of Increase!

Be careful to follow every command I am giving you today, so that you may live and increase and may enter and possess the land the LORD promised on oath to your ancestors. Deut. 8:1

  • Following His commands results in Success.
"Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Joshua 1:7

  • Following His commands results Love.
Jesus replied, "Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. John 14:23

May you experience the richness of following after Jesus and be protected from falling over!
