Learning to Ride!
One day, my Dad decided it was time to take the stabilisers off and then he pushed my down the hill! - Sure enough, I could ride the bike no problem and have done ever since!! (only when it's not raining though. I admit, I am a fairweather cyclist!)
The Holy Spirit spoke to me through this and reminded me that our heavenly Father knows more than anyone of what we are capable of and also when we need a bit of a push to do something. He loves us so much. He loves enough though to ensure that we grow, move forward and change to be all that He has created and called us to be. Sometimes this can stretch us and God ultimately knows what we need and what we can handle. The 'push' of the Holy Spirit in our lives will always lead to life, growth and blessing.
I certainly don't want to slow down God's purposes in my life by holding onto anything that restricts or hinders that which God wants to do in me and through me for His glorious Kingdom.
Have a great weekend!
