Trust the Journey

When following Christ, trust the journey.

Trust the rocky places will remind you how treacherous life can be, and to not get in a hurry. Take your time and mind your footing.

Trust that the twists and turns will remind you of life’s unpredictable nature. Slow down. God knows the tribulations around the next corner, but we do not. Trust Him with your every step.

When following Christ, trust the journey.

Trust the storms to undergird your resolve. We may lose things in the gusty wind and blistering rain, but only that which was hindering our spiritual walk in the first place.

Trust the steep, uphill paths to strengthen you. We won’t make good time, according to our expectations, but in the sweat and the struggle we go from mouse to Man. From frightened girl to Woman of God.

When following Christ, trust the journey.

Trust the Great Sheppard to protect us from beasts of the forest. When walking with God, we become David, battling a doomed giant. Our Goliath. In and of ourselves we can do nothing, but all things are possible with the Lord.

Trust the bone-weary fatigue to get our spiritual bodies into shape. Tears, anxiety and depression may come with the pitch of night, but joy and hope come in the morning.

When following Christ, trust the journey.

It’s not pretty.

But in the journey we become the person God knew us to be all along.

Slow down, breathe, have faith and trust the journey.

Even when it doesn’t make sense.

We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance.  And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.  (Romans 5:3-4)

Many blessings, my friends.
