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 God, it seemed as though life were rather like a

bike ride, but it was a tandem bike, and I noticed that God was at the

back, helping me pedal.


I don't know when it was that he suggested that we change places, but life

has not been the same since. When I had control I knew the way. It was

rather boring, but predictable. 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.


He took me to people with gifts that I needed; gifts of healing, acceptance

and joy. They gave me gifts to take on my journey. 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 that 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'd 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 God as my delightful constant companion.


And when I'm sure I just can't do anymore, He just smiles and says, "Pedal!"
