Just Keep Biking

The worse part of physical therapy is the bike.  Other exercises I can get through faster by not resting long before my next stretch, pull, push or press.  But on the bike no matter how fast I go, I don’t decrease the time it takes because I’m on it for a set amount of time.

Yeah, I kreein’ hate that bike.

I always came to trails saying, “God, please teach me my lesson fast so I can move past this.”  While I think it’s ok to want out of a trail fast I think that sometimes God could be teaching us endurance.  To withstand the devil and hard times for a long period of time.

Right now that reminds me of what I’m facing now.  Addiction and feelings don’t fade over night.  I’m going to press on as fast as I can but God might be working patience in me.

Bring the Challenge

After I was done with physical therapy for the first time, I was talking to Edward’s accountability partner.  Edward is looking for a career in medicine and physical therapist hit me as his speed.  Most time is spent one on one.  I’ve been two more times and I still stand by that.  In fact I’m loving the environment there and I think I know why.

I love a challenge that will improve me or a friend.  But if I’m going it alone I have a bad habit thinking I’m doing nothing.  In physical therapy, there is a challenging environment that I’ve improving my health (physically and spiritually because I’m trying to use it learn about “spiritual therapy”).  Yes, it hurts but I’m already stronger.

I love it when I’m around some that I feel challenges my spiritually.  They help me grow in God’s strength.
