My name Is Matthew Rodriguez, I am 47 years old and I am allowed to do what I love to do, bringing glory to God. I do that by one of the gifts He has given to me, not something I can claim on my own. I am only good at what I do because He lives in me. All of us have gifts, it's up to us to find them. I found one of mine, cycling, and I'm here to encourage you to find yours.
I have always been a believer in God, but I never acted like one, behaved like one, talked or thought like a Christian. 20 years ago I didn't believe in this or really even cared. My only concern was about myself and how I could further my life without any concern for anyone. Now though my thinking has changed. This has been because I opened up my heart to Jesus.
I have always been a believer in God, but I never acted like one, behaved like or thought like a Christian. It took this accident to help me become a true believer. Not that God had anything to do with y accident, He would never hurt us, but this helped me think about what I value most of all. That's not glory, that's only God's, but I want to lead you to Him.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." Matthew 5:14-16
Did you ever love something and have taken away? Not a toy, or a person or anything like that. I mean something that was very important to me.
My whole life has come to this exact point in my life.
I do this to show people what He has done in my life and show how good He is.
This is mainly about having faith in my life and believing that God would keep His promise. I was not saved from death to cycle, I am here to inspire you.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
Yes I am happy that I can cycle again but I'm more happy, actually excited, that I am saved! Jesus came to earth for one reason, to die and pay for our sins. If you received my card or saw the sign on the back of my helmet, it was no accident! It was God either "prompting" me to give it to you or telling you to visit my site.
