Our bike trip started on Monday with a 600km ride from Cape Town to a beautiful spot in Namibia on the Orange River. It took us 11 hours. On the way we had to say goodbye to friends, ride through miles of not-so-interesting landscapes, wait at roadblocks and get through a border crossing. My bike also overheated a bit so I had to ride slower then I wanted for the last few hours (follow us at www.wordspaceonwheels.org)

In Colossians 1v11 Paul prays that God’s glorious might will give us great endurance and patience in our lives. I wonder why he included that? I think cos he knew life is full of roadblocks, unwanted trouble and boring bits too. God’s strength to you as you journey through the good and the tough today.
