Journeys

Standard

Our journey. Thank God for our journeys. It is our very own, yet we are to share it with everyone we meet. (I’m not talkin’ about the detailed accounts of your personal any-kinda–oscopy stories either. Nobody wants to hear that.) God gives us the ability to choose how we embark on our journey, whether we go kickin’ and screamin’ or kicked back, trusting that He’s got it under control. There is no better way to learn to trust the Creator than to just jump in with both feet. (you know the ones that are most likely kicking?) “This isn’t the way it’s supposed to go. I was supposed to be there, not here!” “This wasn’t the plan!” Or was it? Say what you like, but even as adults I can see some with pigtails, ribbons, and pouts. Or kickin’ a muddy hiking boot in the dirt while juttin’ that bottom lip out. (Thank God a birdie never DID come and poop on my lip like my Grandpa would tell me…)
People in ERs all over the country are sayin’ these things. The young mom sitting next to her baby boy in the NICU wonders why and how. The young couple who just tied the knot and lost their jobs. The 40-year old diagnosed with life-threatening cancer. The 60-year old trying to make it until retirement and gets sick. The 90 year old husband checking his wife into the nursing facility because he can no longer take care of her after 65 years together. Journeys. We’ve got to believe as true believers would. That God is in control. He is the saver of our souls and no matter what happens on this earth, that remains the truth and the truth still remains. Trust, peace, joy, love. These are our destiny. These are our promises from the Creator Himself. Romans 8:28 states that whatever happens, He’ll make it good. He’ll use it, He’ll use you, to guide someone else on their journey. No matter what questions you may have tonight regarding your circumstances, trust that God loves you more than you’ll ever know and that His leading is what will see you through. We do not go through trials just because it’s something to do while we’re here. We live, we learn and we help others to do the same. I pray God blesses each of you while on your journey, for it is yours and yours to share.
