Having gone through this process once already I should have it down to a science. To win her over I had to gain her confidence and trust. Little by lite it came. At first my hands could never leave her, then I could let go for a few seconds and finally she decided she could go it alone. Why I had to do is let her see that I was not going to let her crash and I wasn’t going to leave her when she was unsure of herself. Once that battle was overcome, the balancing and riding were a breeze.

Learning to walk as a Christian is much like riding a bike. We’re not sure we can make it, we want God’s arms around us, but eventually we learn that He will never leave us or forsake us and then we run with confidence. Wherever you are today and whatever you are gong through, know that God is with you. He won’t let you and He won’t let you crash.
