Today I wanted to journal this after my cycling....
A banal evening …
Sun has set… lights are ON everywhere.
Yet, I cycle through the unlighted road with a lighted joy.
It is a long road to ride and the rainy days aren’t over yet .
I am awakened to this evening of dampness...
and the profound calmness of incomplete rain.
I see in the dark some fireflies here and there.
Like small sparks of joy, these fireflies live a life
only to disappear in the dawn.
As I am peddling up,
the peloton of troubles and cares seems to have been overtaken...
a joy of fresh breeze
and the loneliness of an empty ride has taken over.
Yet, every turn and every corner offer a quick wonder…
God brakes into with a surprise!
Someone said that God could not offer His presence all the time.
Is He an ‘Only now and then’ God?
God wants me to live by faith… not by sight.
A bicycle rider too lives by faith…
faith in too many things and faith in too small things.
So, solo rider… go and learn to blaze…
because God breaks-in and dwells, in all surprise!
