Trust in the Lord and do good. Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust in Him and He will do this. He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun. Be still and wait patiently for Him. Psalm 37:3-7
The Bible tells us that ‘life and death are in the power of the tongue’. The words we speak out have such a significant affect on the lives of others. Just about a year ago I shared a message at Sun City Church in Geraldton, Western Australia. A message about dreams and visions. Little did I know the impact that message would have on the locals. The dream was one I have held close to my heart for nearly 20 years.. the dream of riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle across the deserts of Australia from west too east. To be honest I gave up on the dream years ago after a few big set backs. But God never forgets.. He will never leave you or forsake you. The dream is alive and well.
Back then if I’d had my way it would have been a selfish ambition…. But now it is so much more. It is a dream to help people struggling with depression and the hopelessness of suicide. Crossing Australia is a mission to bring hope to people isolated in the battle to find real life.
There’s so many people to thank. The list is too long. I am so humbled that God would give me this opportunity to attempt riding a motorcycle 5,720kms (3,550 miles) across the outback tracks of the Great Southland of Australia. That’s like riding from San Francisco to New York off road!!!.. But I’m so grateful for everyone who has smiled a crazy smile with me and thought “Just do it”. Give it your best shot!! Thanks for your friendship and the freedom to be able to dream a crazy dream and see it grow into a tangible reality!!
So… Crossing Australia… Here we come!!
