When we surrender our helmet, wheels and handlebars
to the Lord of the heavens and the earth;

He takes us further, deeper, higher
than we have ever been.

He leads us into places more majestic and more beautiful
than we could ever imagine;

He takes us deep into the mountains of His love;
a place with a view

My dad’s birthday just passed and I thought it was about time for another “Boy on the Bike” adventure. This scene is inspired by [Matthew 7:14] which speaks about the narrow road. 

Do we take the road that just seems right, or do we take the narrow road and trust that God will guide our steps. The first step is the decision to follow Christ in obedience, the decision to first step onto this narrow road. From there, we can trust Him to help us navigate every stone and furrow, every high and low point, every hard decision, and every fall. Our God is faithful. Our God is worthy. Our God has the highest place.

“Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life,
and there are few who find it.” [Matthew 7:14]

Boy on the Bike – Sundown

BOY ON THE BIKE – Sundown    (Digital, 2016)

Inspired by a short ride from my home to my parents’ home, “Sundown” takes us through a park lit up by the setting sun. The trees, all unique in their shape and leaves, are made all the more beautiful by the sun’s golden glow.

You may notice some inconsistencies with the boy’s bike (can you spot them?)

Life is full of new things to learn and new places to explore. We all make mistakes and we all fall over, but we all have the ability to get back onto the bike and make it home before the sun sets. God tells us that His steadfast love never ceases, and that His mercies are new every morning [Lamentations 2:22-23].

When we make mistakes, when we stumble and fall, let us take a moment to remember God’s faithfulness. It might help us see our situation in a new light.

Introducing “Boy on the Bike”, and “The Lawyer”

What better way to launch Lily of the Valleys, then to introduce you to these two characters? Inspired by my parents who see Jesus in every aspect of life, “Boy on the Bike” and “The Lawyer” give us an insight into the beauty of daily living. Join them as they find God in every place and situation!

PS: The “antennae” worn by “Boy on the Bike” are  based on cable ties my dad has on his bike helmet. They are used to scare away the magpies!

2016 Boy on the Bike - Towards the Clouds

Atop the hills, the clouds await, 
The sun paints gold the grass.
See there! Stand still,
And here behold,
Jesus, the King of Glory.

2016 The Lawyer - Office

Not just a mess of paper cords,
Not just an inner dread,
Not just a view of outside world,
But here, a prayer den.
