It’s Time for the Winds of Destiny to Come 

Even experienced the tough headwinds and long climbing yesterday, I still determined to take the Route 66 anyway, I was prepared to be tortured for the day, in fact, I didn’t sleep well last night, the strong stomachache tortured me till the midnight, I fell asleep nearly 3 am, I felt survived when I woke up in the morning, like i survived through the headwinds yesterday.
But I surprisingly found that I got tailwinds when I stated on Route 66, I have been told by several locals that the strong wind from west to east will last for the whole week,but I got TAILWIND right now!! It was such a great blessing after fighting with headwinds all day long !You will get treats by life when you are choosing go for it instead of stepping away from the challenge, God is fair, he will balance your sorrow!

The Route 66 is almost parallel to Interstate 40 in New Mexico.

The oncoming trains, some of the carriages says ” China Shipping “, felt the breeze from my hometown.
After riding for 2 hours, I got the killer headwinds again! I think its probably because the wind didn’t wake up in the morning, I waswas still hoping the wind could change tho, after fighting for a half hour, I know I have to fight for it for the whole day.

I pulled over and had a brief lunch, the wind almost made me out of breath when I was stopping there, my bike almost blew away if it’s without the heavy panniers, i knew it’s gonna be a tough day, just at that time, a gospel group posted an article says “It’s Time for the Winds of Destiny to Come “

Jesus is breathing new life into your dreams! This is a season of great meeting with the lord. You will see his beauty and glory, which you have never seen before. You will be awakened by his love and fire in a new way. Your desires and dreams are blowing, this is just the beginning. He will go beyond your wildest dreams and your wildest dreams, the dreams that you have shared with him, the joy that is in him. He is restoring you!

My heart was trembling to be touched,Jesus always give me confidence and strength, he always knows what I want, what I need, he reminds me that he is being with me and helping building my dreams together when I was struggling in the touch situations. I was not bearing the tough wind , but receiving the destiny of the wind in my life, it was the breath of dream,of life! I felt so grateful to embark on my journey again, every fights with me winds just excited me, I was riding for the dream,every beat of the hard experiences strengthen my wings until I could fly anywhere !Hallelujah, praise the Lord, He is the only one that making me feel joyful and grateful even in the hardest situations.
When you changed your mood, the situations will be changed as well , you will be focused on the amazing scenery instead of the winds you are fighting for 

Red sands and the mesa ! 


Felt like rolling in the sands 

Kept riding 45 miles on Route 66, then I got to catch up the 40 because there was only sandy road ahead,a passed truck driver told me there was a road but has been abandoned.

The shoulder was pretty narrow and spotty, I was only like 5 feet away from the passed by cars, the strong headwinds and the winds from the big trucks blew me off to the small road for several times, it was hard enough to climb up, but the downhill was even more dangerous, the winds was just like the hurricane that shook my bikes so hardly, I had to grasp my handle bars firmly to not let myself fall down,I would have been blew away already if it’s without my panniers.

After struggling for a few miles, there was a sign says “Tough road ahead “, was it not tough enough? 

Yeah, you bet, no toughest but tougher! The road ahead was just the gravel and rocks, you can’t even call it a road ! I had to fight with the headwinds and the side winds from the truck not let myself being blew away but be cautious of the gravel and kept climbing not letting myself fall down at the same time. Yet I still kept praising,thanks Lord for giving me these rich experiences , thanks for keeping me safe!You attitude may not change the environment, but will change your mood ,complaining and frustration will just make it worse! I took that as a gift from the God, I know he was training me, I don’t feel I conquered the headwinds or the mountains , what I conquered was my fear and timidity. Thanks God for allowing me experience troubles that drives me closer to Him,it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich!
After struggling on 40 for 10 miles, God took me back to Route 66 again, even the wind was still strong, but I didn’t have to be aware of the truck pass by nor the gravel rotten road. The wind was like the devil,I can’t let the devil screw up my mind, steal my joy,Jesus is almighty God, I had to resist the temptation of devil to enjoy the love of God.

It took me forever to get through the last 10 miles, but I did it! I survived! I made it! When darkness falls, among those scattered myriads of twinkling lights, there must be many simple happiness dwelling in the lanes, the temperature got closer to 30 degrees at night, I felt cold to death and was really hoping to dwell in a warm bed instead of camping out, fortunately, a Couchsurfing host contacted me for the last minute, a warm shelter was such a big blessing for the day!

昨天经历了艰难的逆风加爬坡,可是想要挑战66号公路的决心依然没有动摇,一大早便做好了要受虐一天的准备,说实话,昨晚并没有睡上一个好觉,沙漠晚上太冷风又太大,凌晨三点被风声吵醒。

但是当我沿着66号公路骑行的时候我惊讶的发现居然是顺风!因为耳边再也不是呼呼迎面的风声而是能够听的到整个世界的宁静,在经历了昨天一天的超强逆风后,这一刻的顺风对我来说真是天大的恩赐,至少有4个当地人告诉我这一周都将是超级逆风,可是迎风而上的选择却给了我意想不到的恩典,都说退一步海阔天空,我想迎难而上不放弃才是真正的海阔天空,若昨天就此止住,此刻也无法感受这番经历后的甘甜了。

在新墨西哥路段66号公路几乎和州际公路平行

迎面而来的火车。有几节车厢上写着中国货运的英文字样,有种感动到那是来自家乡的气息。

然而在骑行两个小时后不到便又迎来了超强逆风,时间正好接近中午,我想这大概是因为上午风还没苏醒的缘故,但是此时我仍然侥幸的希望风向能够有所改变,直到艰难的抗争半个小时后知道这就是今天要面对的了。

我把车停在路边简单的吃了个午饭,停下来后迎面扑来的风几乎能让人窒息,当我正想着这将是一天漫长的跋涉之时,突然看到福音公众号推送的一条消息”这是命定之风吹到的时刻”!耶稣正在向你的梦想吹入新生命的气息!

这是一个大大与主相遇的季节。你会看见祂的美善和荣耀,是你从未看过的。你会以一种新的方式被祂的爱情和烈火苏醒。你的渴望和梦想正被吹气,这才只不过是刚刚开始而已。祂将超越你最大的梦想和最疯狂的想象,那是你与祂曾经一起共筑的梦想,是在祂里面的喜乐。祂正在恢复你!

我的心被颤抖着击中,感动到不能言语,耶稣总是在关键的时候给我信心和力量,他时刻知道我所想,我所需,他也在每一个挣扎的时刻提醒我他与我同在,他在和我共筑梦想,这不是难以承受的逆风,而且他赐予的命定之风,是新生命的气息!

我再一次热血沸腾的踏上征程,与风的每一次搏斗都让我更加兴奋,我觉得自己真真是在迎着梦想骑行,每一次的经历都让翅膀更加的刚强,直到最终我可以飞到任何想去的地方!哈利路亚,感谢主,让我在看似艰难的处境中也能如此的喜乐和感激!

 

当你的心境改变,环境也随之改变,美景也尽收眼底。一路的红色沙土和平顶山!

好想在泥土里打个滚!

就这样顺利的沿着66号公路骑行了75公里,到最后35公里时发现前面又只有沙路无法骑行,一个路过的卡车司机告诉我那里原本是一条路只不过现在已经废除了,我便只好再次骑上40号高速,但是这次旁边的辅道却异常狭窄,因为没有了两边的灌木遮挡,逆风也比66号公路强烈很多,而且也更多的爬山,高速上驶过的大卡车带来的风几乎每一次都能把我吹偏,因为道路的狭窄所以和卡车相隔不到1米的距离,而他们的时速是70英里,也就是112公里!

 辅道不仅狭窄而且非常的不平,都是一些碎小的沙砾和横七八竖的石头,除了上坡难,下坡却是更加危险,每一次大卡车驶过和强烈逆风带来的碰撞都能把我的单车刮到旁边更小的路,若不是驮包的重量,单车一定是早已刮飞了,我一刻也不敢松懈,牢牢的抓住把手随时做好被刮倒的准备,就这样摇摇晃晃经历几次几乎摔倒的情境后,为了安全起见,在下坡时我只能选择推车!而上坡只能以5的时速慢慢摇。

 当我正在想着这样的路段什么时候能变好,看见前面路标上写着,前方道路艰难! 天啊,现在还不够艰难吗?那前面的路是要怎样?

没错,没有最难,只有更难!

前面的辅道几乎全是石块和沙砾,我一边和强烈的逆风以及卡车刮来的风抗争保持自己屹立不倒,一边小心的驶过这些石块保持自己不要摔跤,一边艰难的爬山向上保持自己不要退掉,然而心中仍然是不住的赞美,神啊我感谢你给我这些丰盛的经历,感谢你给予我平安!我知道在此刻的环境下若是没有一个好的心态,抱怨和沮丧会使得处境更加艰难,而虽然心态不能改变环境,却能够改变心境,当我觉得这些都是神的恩赐,都是梦想的垫脚石的时候,我觉得我不是在征服环境,而是自己退缩和胆怯的心。
就这样一路跌跌撞撞骑了这辈子最长的10公里后,神又再次给我开道让我回到了66号公路,虽然下午的飓风越来越猛烈,但是却不用再提防大卡车,也没有了沙砾烂路。我把风当做是魔鬼,我不能让魔鬼搅乱我的心志,偷走我的喜乐,因为耶稣是征服一切的真神,我要抵制魔鬼的试探,才能在耶稣的爱里得胜!
最后的10公里似乎花了我2小时甚至更长的时间,当我看到万家灯火真的有一种活着走过来的激动,晚上气温降到了零下,从30度到零下,我几乎是拿出所有的衣服套上仍然感觉寒冷,那一刻真的特别渴望一张温暖的床而不是风中露营,感谢在最后一刻一个沙发客主人给我回复消息提供住所,虽然再次经历了长长的爬坡到达他的住址,然而这样一个温暖的家却真的是一天最幸福的问候!
