I’ve been reading over my journal from the past several years.
My spiritual life has been a roller coaster. Up & down. Mountaintops and valleys. And mostly, living on the plains.
I’ve noticed how many times I pleaded with God to show me what to do: about an important decision… about what to say in a certain situation… about how to proceed on some project.
God’s answer every time: “Love me with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength. And love your neighbor as yourself. The doing will take care of itself.”
And it has. Every time.
It may not have happened on my time schedule, or in the way I wanted or predicted. But as I’ve read through my journal over the last 15 years or so, I can see that God has provided all that I need. He has blessed me beyond measure. Not necessarily with material things – although I have more than enough of those! The true blessing has come in the ongoing conversation with God and the fascinating journey through life… filled with incredible sights, sounds, smells, surprises, opportunities, and relationships.
The journey is the destination!
