I went out and loaded my bike with the sky just starting to sprinkle. I really needed to burn off the stress coming at me on all sides. So, I put on several layers.Then I put my Ipod with praise music on and started off. The rain was heavy sometimes, light others and none at all at times. I rode for 18.5 miles in the rain. I did not feel cold or wet during my ride. I cried but no one was there to see. It would have been hard to distinguish between rain drops and my tears. I also cried out to God and I know he heard me. I felt much better when I returned to the truck as God had given me a special measure of his peace.
Yes, I needed to burn some calories, but I needed to talk to God more. As my friend, Suellen commented on my earlier blog, "maybe venting my anger at my circumstances during the storm would help." Little did she know than when she was writing that comment that was exactly what I was doing. And yes, Suellen, it did help. God did hear my cry and he did calm my storm.
