"We all make mistakes, that's why pencils have erasers."
In bikepacking mistakes are a common routine. Not so appealing, right?! Let me explain. Bikepacking is all about exploring. Yes, you leave with a planned out route, places to get water, food, and lodging. But, like all good plans there is always a plan B.
Seeing as you're exploring, you will get lost, you will miss your places for water, you will end up sleeping alongside the road because the campground no longer exists even though the updated map you bought say it does.
Our walk with the Lord is all about exploration. He has a plan for us, we get to explore (find out what it is) and then it's up to us to execute His plan.
Yes, we'll make mistakes. We're human. It's bound to happen, but we can choose to dwell on our mistakes or we can pick ourselves up and keep going. As sure as the new sun will rise, He will help us find our way again.
2 After two days he will revive us;
on the third day he will restore us,
that we may live in his presence.
3 Let us acknowledge the Lord;
let us press on to acknowledge him.
As surely as the sun rises,
he will appear;
he will come to us like the winter rains,
like the spring rains that water the earth.”
Thanks and God Bless!
