Me vs. My Bike

The bike is my hardest part of the triathlon.

I am afraid of it.

Well, not the bike itself, I like to look at it. It is the first size small anything I have owned in AGES. It is white and a really cool metallic green. :)

I am afraid of FALLING OFF, getting hit by a car, and crashing in general.

I knew it was bad, but this week, when I was in my spin class, there was a car passing on the VIDEO of the road we were "riding" on and I got stressed.

I KNOW!!! Crazy!!

So, I am going to have to let go of this ridiculous fear! I just have no idea how!

In the name of our sweet Jesus I command the spirit of fear to leave my friend alone! Jesus, You created Jennifer to be a triathalete! You put it in her DNA to do it to the fullest. She will not allow ANYTHING to scare her! You are her ROCK, her FORTRESS, and her comforter. Father, today, from here on out, when she gets on that bike will you hold her up and replace that fear with adrenaline... Joy... comfort... and the knowledge that with YOU she can do this! she can ride that bike in style!! Thank you Jesus! For loving her and giving her supernatural strength and courage!!

Who am I?

I am a wife and mother of 3. I have been married to my best friend for over 25 years and our children are 12, 11 and 9 years old. I have struggled with infertility, suffered the loss of a baby by miscarriage, and endured multiple career paths. I have experienced a crisis of faith that shook me to the core and lost a dear friend to a tragic death. I have had a personal relationship with Jesus for most of my life. The Bible and my relationship with Christ has been essential to my surviving and even thriving in my circumstances. I hope you will be blessed by joining me in this process of life. I thank you for showing up to read what I have written.
