Upon completion of my first official bike ride associated with the one hundred day challenge, I sat down and wrote this quote:
“No matter how dark the present appears, I choose to live for the promise of the future.”
This quote reinforced my commitment to finding something better in my life. It is the foundation behind my decision to ride my bike for one hundred consecutive days.
I needed to move out of the darkness and live for the future, instead of living in the present.
Lately, I have been actively reflecting on my five year journey. In the process, I found this scripture verse resonates similarly with that very first quote while demonstrating the transitions that have taken place in my life and where I find love, hope and clarity today:
“I have come into world as a light, so that no one who believes in me shall stay in darkness.” (John 12:46 NKJV).
In today’s video blog I share how these two thoughts have inspired and encouraged me through life’s darkest periods.
