JOURNEY TO ........

We are leaving on a trip tomorrow and in the midst of packing,
trying to get last minute errands run,
getting everything done at work,
plus spend a little time with my grandchildren,
I am trying to fit in time for blogging!!
The Lord has been putting on my heart lately about
the journey we are all on in this life. We are all
on a pilgrimage through life. If we know Jesus
as our Lord and Savior then our final destination is
a wonderful place called "HEAVEN".
We can try to make it through this journey
all on our own, without a roadmap, not
noticing the road signs and hope we reach
the place we've originally set out for, but
chances are we will take the wrong road and
either take the long, hard way, or not even reach
the final destination we had hoped for.
Jeremiah 31:21 says,
"Set up road signs,
put up guideposts.
Take note of the highway,
the road that you take."
It seems to me that we need to actively pursue in our
walk with the Lord, our pilgrimage on earth.
This is just our temporary home; we are going to a
wonderful place the Lord has prepared for us.
I need to STOP and listen
for the Lord's voice.
I need to YIELD to the Spirit's Leading.
I need to use CAUTION when moving
ahead on the road that I don't go off one side or the other.
I need to GO when the Lord says to and
take as many with me as possible!!
The Destination
is Worth the Trip!!
Isaiah 35:3-10
Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way;
say to those with fearful hearts, Be strong, do not fear, your God will come.
He will come with vengeance, with divine retribution, he will come to save you.
Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped.
Then will the lame leap like a deer and the mute tongue shout for joy.
Water will gush forth in the wilderness and streams in the desert.
The burning sand will become a pool, the thirsty grounds bubbling springs...
And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness...
But only the redeemed will walk there, and the ransomed of the Lord will return.
They will enter Zion with singing; everlasting joy will crown their heads.
Gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.
Come Along with Me!!!
