Most common mode of public transportation for short distances is tricycle or pedicab. It’s a motorcycle with a built-in little cab on the side.
On the back of the tricycle, they used to put photos of sexy ladies. It caused a lot of distractions and accidents for other drivers. So, there was a mandate that a Bible verse will be put instead. Thus, all tricycles have bible verses on them.
Love that change. A tad extreme, but wonderful, don’t you think?
And while you and I are riding in the tricycles of life, looking for joy, searching for peace and longing for security, God also has these changes for us:
From the deepest of our sorrows to the highest peak of His grace
From our weariness and worry to the wonder of His love
From lonely moments to the loving touch of His hand
From the farthest distance, to His closest whisper
From the most feared crisis, to the faithfulness of His care
From the most stressful days, to the dawning of His peace
From our secret insecurities to the certainty of His Word
Although a King, powerful and mighty, David also asked for his own change: “Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me” ( Psalm 51:10).
Father, I seek the changes you need to make in me, my life, my thoughts, my desires and actions. I wait to have the pure heart that pleases you and keeps joy in my heart. In Jesus’ name, amen.
