Re: Done with bikes
Sorry to hear about your decision. But since your reason isn't discernible, I pray you find out how/why this epiphany evolved over the last month. As others have echoed, there may be something behind why you don't find joy from riding any longer.
I can tell you, riding keeps me sane. When I kick her into first, open the visor just a crack, blip the throttle, and let out the clutch till she asking for 2nd, the world seems to look a little better. It also helps, that the tunes in my ears, keep telling me how much I'm loved, and there is a plan; when all I see is chaos, and haven't a clue what the plan is. After-all, God is sovereign... He is in control... and He is good.
When I get back home, and my butt is sore, and I'm tired, hot or cold, hungry and thirsty, I can sleep well. I know my journey hasn't solved any of my problems, but then I never thought it would anyway. It was just a chance for me to look at creation and remember, I never was in control.
