It is not the arrival at the destination of a blessing
But the journey of traveling there with God
Storytime! Like most teens, I took Driver’s Ed and got my permit. My dad and I would go out on the weekends and practice parking and driving. I actually learned more with him, by chance than I did with my Driver’s Ed instructor! On my 16th birthday, I passed the driving test and was excited to be off the bus, yet I still felt like something was missing. Once I had the license in my hand, I realized that I had enjoyed learning experience of driving and would never have that opportunity again.
Don’t imagine, dear friends, that God’s timetable is the same as ours; as the psalm says, for with the Lord, one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like one day.2 Peter 3:8 VOICE
It has been 6 years or better yet, 6 days since I developed my own personal relationship with God, and I grin at the thought of how God has changed my life for the better. However, sometimes I get caught up in time. Counting it up too soon. Hoping it would slow down. And when I do, I covet the destination, neglecting the journey, which is the greatest part.
We all want to find out what the new normal will look like post-pandemic. We all want to get to that place in life. And while wanting those things can be exercises of hope and faith, they should never be exalted above enjoying the roads that lead us to where we want to go!
If you embrace the journey, you will be full of wisdom and know exactly what to do when you reach the destination…God’s Timing is perfect!
