Save Biker Deb...


THE LULU CHRONICLES

LuLu-ism #52: If you ignore your pink bike for too long… she will get revenge.

LuLu here. Yeah, I know, you haven’t heard from me in a while. There’s a reason for that: I’m in the garage gathering dust! I am not a happy pink bike.  Biker Deb has wimped out on me. “It’s too cold….it’s too windy… the Cowgirl hurts!”
Whatever!
She needs your help, folks. She’s fallen off the bike. Not literally, but you know what I mean. She’s at a crossroads. Her journey to better health has hit a snag. She missed a day of riding because of bad weather which has now lead to two weeks of not riding her pink bike… me! But that’s not the worst of it. Biker Deb has this flawed philosophy that when she messes up in her exercise program she might as well mess up in her eating choices, too. She needs a good swift kick in the Cowgirl… and I need your help to give her one.
Biker Deb needs inspiration. She needs encouragement. She needs accountability. She needs quotes. Yeah, you heard me…quotes. She’s a writer. Words mean a lot to her. Help save Biker Deb from herself. Send her your favorite inspirational quotes… quick. You know the ones I mean—the little sayings, stories and quips that put a fire in your belly, that push you off the couch and onto your bike (preferably a pink one). Sayings that convict. Stories that touch. Quips that make you want to embroider them on a pillow or tattoo them on your forehead.
It’s critical, friends. She’s at the point where she either throws up her hands and sells me in a garage sale, or she gets back in the saddle and Girl-up. We’ve all been there. We’ve all been on the brink of losing everything we’ve gained. Help us.
I will not be happy if I find a tag tied on my basket that reads, “Make me an offer.” Biker Deb and I are soul mates but half of us have lost their way. I’m counting on you. Get me back on the road with a happy biker in my saddle.
From the garage,
LuLu

Oh no...I am behind on reading so this comment is a bit late but hopefully will help.

1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

Here's an Acapella song for inspiration....

Words and music: Ken McAlpin © 1999 Clifty Music (BMI)
Lead: Ken McAlpin (chorus and bridge), All Step Out in Verses
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Movin', gotta keep movin'
Groovin', stay in the groove (yes)
Movin', gotta keep movin'
Pressing on, striving toward the goal, (yes)

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Well every one of us is in a race
And we're running for the prize
It takes time and energy to train
A spiritual exercise
Throw off every weight that slows you down
Take that path that Christ has led
Forget everything that is behind
And just strain toward what's ahead
And just keep on

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Well everyday we have to make a choice
Say true to what is right
Overcome everything that's in our way
And fix our eyes on Christ
Just keep pressing on up toward the goal
Where a crown of life you'll find
Well no doubt Christ will be waiting there
When we cross the finish line
And we just keep

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Bridge:
Jesus died on the cross
Willing to die for even me
Now he reigns up on high
Don't give up or become weary

Repeat Chorus (x2)

Yes, pressin on, pressin'
I've just gotta keep

Repeat Chorus (x3)

Background to Chorus and fade

Scriptural Reference:

"I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:14
