MAY 18 GROWN UP CONVERSATIONS

Today’s topic: LIFE IS A JOURNEY

A journey is to travel from one place to another. Whether you are driving, running, flying, roaming, or crossing over you are on a journey.

If you are facing 1000 steps to climb, or you are on the peak of a mountain or in the lowest valley, or you’ve had many delays as exhausting as the journey can sometimes be you’ve got to keep going because life is like having a one-way ticket in hand.

Your journey cannot be exchanged or auctioned off on eBay or Amazon. It’s yours for as long as you are alive and the truth is, it was prepackaged with your name on it the moment you stepped into this world.

Good and bad things happen it’s the package life comes with and it’s uncontrollable by human’s hands.

We must ask ourselves one question – ‘Should we just sit here waiting to die because life did not hand us good cards?’

Everything you are facing is designed to stretch your faith and never to kill your momentum. God stretches our faith because He knows that if He can get us to trust Him in the scariest of times it will be less intimidating the next time around.

Faith is like the muscles in our bodies if we don’t use it, we will lose it. Faith must be used so it can grow. When faith is not used, we lose it and start accusing God of being unfair.

I’ve found that when my mind is spent thinking who, what, where, and how they are warning signs that my thoughts are being derailed and it’s a guarantee that I will lose heart in the journey.

Never become preoccupied with questions that you cannot answer for yourself. Keep moving! Be empowered! God is keeping watch.

Complaining doesn’t get you up or down 1000 steps. Trying to reason out the process leads to death of dreams, laughter, and seeing the beautiful things along the way. You should not be the same person you used to be when you started your journey.

Every obstacle, every person you have met, every place you have walked, every tear you have shed, every dream that was squashed, every love that you gave that was not reciprocated, every year you lost in the valley, every prayer you’ve prayed have all made you who you are today.

Some journeys take us through dangerous and difficult circumstances but through it all we will learn to trust God.

2 Chronicles 16:9 “For the eyes of the LORD roam to and fro over all the earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose hearts are fully devoted to Him.”

Anyone can say they have faith in God but when uncertainties and setbacks are encountered then the real testing of our faith begins, and many lose courage and walk away.

Be encouraged your test is to increase your confidence in God. Therefore, we must cheer each other on for we do not know what tomorrow holds for anyone of us.

The next leg of the journey requires vision where you know your worth and know the value of holding your own pen.

PRAYER TIME: Father, thank you for constantly watching everyone. Thank you for the strength you give to all who faithfully obey you. In Jesus Name, Amen
