Do you remember when you first learned to ride a bike? It seemed like a HUGE undertaking. Keeping your balance without the use of training wheels, trusting that your forward momentum would propel you – that was such a milestone! Now, most of us can ride on autopilot; even if we haven’t ridden in years.
Albert Einstein says that life is kind of like that. If we only keep moving, we’ll retain, remember, or re-calibrate. In his letter to the church at Philippi, the Apostle Paul says it like this:
I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.Philippians 3:14 MSG
This Monday morning, be assured that if you keep moving towards the One who is beckoning you, you will reach your goal. Just like riding a bike, your foot might slip, you may wobble, you may even fall down, but KEEP MOVING my friend. Don’t turn back. KEEP MOVING!
