No matter what is going on in your life:
- if you are alone and lonely
- if you are in dire financial straits
- if you are living with chronic pain
- if you are in the midst of the worst valley of your life
leaning on and trusting God for strength and direction always produces a mighty faith, joy, and hope. And how can you not share all of that with those who need to hear it?
When a man has no strength, if he leans on God, he becomes powerful.
—D. L. Moody
As I’ve written about before, the short version of our church’s mission statement is “Therefore GO and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 29:19). To be able to do that effectively, we pray for each mission. We also pray over our bikes and riders, that God will use these to spread His Gospel message, for His glory.
Each year we also gather in several different places for the annual bike blessing. The photos in the collage above are from the bike blessing on March 15, 2015 at the Grand Canyon Harley-Davidson dealership in Mayer, Arizona. The prayer blessing was led by Pastors Joe and Tim of our Full Throttle Biker Church. I thought it particularly appropriate to make up a collage using photos from one of this year’s bike blessings to illustrate D. L. Moody’s wonderful quote.
