Embrace Your Journey

8:34 pm Uncategorized

Recently, I was thinking about the detours my life has taken.  I, certainly, had a plan for what the next 5, 10, 20 years of my life would look like.  Some of my plan has come to pass, some of it has not.  In some cases, I actually got better than what I imagined, in other cases, things are not as rosy as I would have hoped.  That’s life…you don’t always get what you want when you want it. 

I believe that what we must do if we are to be content in our lives is to embrace life as a journey.  During a journey, we encounter twists, turns, curve balls, highs, lows, rain, sun, times of feast and times of famine.  It is just a journey.  What if you knew for a fact that at the end of your journey you would reach a great destination filled with happiness and joy?  It probably wouldn’t matter much how you got there…just the fact that you get there one day is all that would really matter.  In our journey to heaven, we all will take different routes, but each route will flow through Christ Jesus.  Your particular route will take you to places that are different from the next person’s.  Don’t lament and complain about where your journey takes you.  Even in the sadness and the difficulty, just say to yourself, “This is my journey…but it will end in a place where I find God.”  Where you can, take the more positive routes…the routes of less pain and frustration.  But if you accidently end up on the wrong road, know that God will help you get back on track if you allow him to.  Embrace your journey…it’s yours…it’s unique…it is different than you planned for it to be and that’s okay as long as it ends in the way you want it to—which is at a place called Heaven.
