One of our days at Acadia was spent biking on the carriage roads. We rented E-bikes; this was a new experience for the 4 of us. It had been explained to us how the E-bikes work, but still none of us really knew what to expect.
Getting the “assist” with pedaling was almost unnoticeable – it was even difficult to recognize when you were going uphill other than watching your speed and power level.
I think that is a good metaphor for God’s presence in our lives. God is assisting us, and not just at the times when it is obvious.
