Joy on Your Journey


Shhh, the Spirit of your Living Lord speaks to your spirit “joy on your journey”. He lifts you close over rocky roads, hugging you tightly. Fields of flowers blooming or during winter’s white with crispy, fresh snow your Lord carries you, rest in His closeness. Yield to His Spirit’s wooing, even now Child. He certainly is in control, know this and REST.

Can we grasp that picture? He doesn’t run ahead – we do sometimes though. He doesn’t drop us, nor does He leave us in the middle of that blizzard without His presence. Distance only comes on our end. By choices we make that either build a wall or have us wandering away to look at something intriguing “just over there”, perhaps in a place we shouldn’t be, a distraction from God’s plan or pathway for us. Oh, there is a fire just over that hill! Did He call us to put out that fire? If not, we need to trust He will use someone else to take care of it. Distractions, tyranny of the urgent, “cares of this world” are what the enemy uses to get us off the narrow path where Jesus is and wills for us to be. Focus on our Lord and we can have joy on the journey, through it all.

Nehemiah 8:10 Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

My Commitment:




Prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, looking at scripture one of the greatest gifts You seem to want us to have is JOY. Help us to be able to receive this great gift from You. Help us also to share this joy so that others will see and know there is something different going on here. Give us openings to share “the master’s touch” with many we see daily. Help us, n our journey to stay incredibly close to You, Jesus. AMEN
