It’s August already, where has the summer gone? With the new month, it’s time for a new theme, and the one that God has presented to me is — Journeying with Jesus.
The Bible is full of journeys. Abraham sets out into the unknown at God’s command; Jacob’s family moves to Egypt to escape a famine, and later into the promised land to escape slavery; Jesus travels the countryside proclaiming the Kingdom of God and finally to Jerusalem to meet His fate; some of His disciples meet Him on their trip to Emmaus after His resurrection. Paul, the famous missionary never stops moving as he plants churches throughout the Roman world!
The entire life of faith is a journey — sometimes we find ourselves in the desert, and other times we celebrate on the mountaintop. Mostly, though, we just plod along, putting one foot in front of the other. As long as we’re alive, we’re never standing still. Wherever our journey takes us, Jesus is there. I hope this month will be a time for all of us to take stock of our lives; to remember the places and people we’ve visited, and to reflect upon how each place and each person has been an opportunity to grown closer to the Savior.
So journey with me this month and always remember, God loves you and so do !! Keep walking!
