Journey to the Present

From the moment I took my first breath God had a plan for me. Over the years I've learned that and now walk by faith and not by sight. I find comfort in this and believe all journeys are not by accident. What is by accident is that we often don't take time to look back on our life's journeys and see the gifts we've been given along the way. No way, I believe, would I be the person I am today without recognizing my journey thus far.

Along the way, I've been lost as a traveler but have managed to continue this journey (detours and all). We are persons created in the image of God and therefore should understand life is a journey that is not to be taken alone. It is to be taken within the context of community and given back to those we are called to help.

Just as Jesus journeyed to deliver the message of love, peace, hope and finally salvation, that is the journey I am trying to walk as well. Through this blog, I hope that I can share my thoughts and that in some insignificant way you are touched by them.

God loves us and has given each of us gifts. If we don't share them with others, how important is our life's journey? When is the last time you reflected on your journey? Remember we are not alone nor are we limited.

The past is gone .... today is fleeting .... tomorrow? only one knows. Has your journey been the trip you've wanted to take? If not, I pray you join me in being able to take the time to give thanks and open hearts to love and direction. It's not as hard as it may seem.

Your Blog is very heavy, because it says it all. The message says a lot and is very clear in its message. Thank-you for sharing.
