Conviction: How does this make me feel?

  • Learning to ride a bike can bring us through a wide range of emotions:
    • excitement and anxiety
    • hope and disappointment
    • joy and sadness

    What makes or breaks our success in learning to ride is whether or not our positive feelings outweigh our negative ones. While we logically want the facts to override our feelings, we know that most of the time, the way we feel will dictate our actions. When we feel like we can become a bike rider, we will keep going down the path to becoming one and find victory over the fear of falling.

  • In this life, we each have our own set of hopes and fears, as well as joys and tears. Learning to know God and understanding His perspective fills us with God’s peace and joy. Who doesn’t want more of that??
