Ride Proclamation!

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

On Hwy 43 in Alberta, cycling toward Sangudo.


I woke up  this morning in Whitecourt, which is a nice size town. The campsite was in  town,  the location was advertised throughout the area. I broke camp and packed all my gear onto  my bike and cycled to find some cafe to have breakfast. I was finally directed to a Subway restaurant that was open at seven  a.m.

After breakfast I had a nice hill to climb to get out of town. Nice way to  start the morning, but each day brings  it’s  own challenges to give one the opportunity to let Christ be seen in you.  The question is, will you seek His face to be seen in you;  in whatever situation you are facing?  The breakfast I ate was fuel for the  hills that I would have to climb later that day.

While cycling a  gentleman stopped on the Hwy and introduced me to his daughter. He had met me several days earlier in the town of Little Smokey. He had a beautiful daughter, with a beautiful name, Omaro. If I did not spell Omaro correctly I apologize. They did offer me a ride to Edmonton, because I had a broken spoke on my rear tire, and had to disconnect my rear brakes. I let them know I was able to cycle using only my front breaks until Edmonton.

I kept  cycling after the two drove off,  after 50 miles I was entering Sangudo Alberta  looking  to find somewhere to camp for the night. Locating a place to stay was supported by Sharon, the information center representative. I chose to camp out and not stay in the recommended motel.

After I set up my tent and got inside, the wind began to blow very hard, then lighting,  followed with a  hard down pour. The wind was blowing rain into my little tent, because it was not made  for such aggressive weather.

The Scripture says “Give thanks in all things for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.”  So I was thanking  God and holding my little tent together, to keep it from blowing away, while wiping away the  water.

In approx. 40 minutes it was all over and the sun came out. I could not figure out what had just happened,  but I was giving thanks to God. I am so very glad that I have started giving thanks in all things. I desire to be a doer of the Word and not a hearer only.
