How to Enjoy the Journey with God

Enjoy the Journey

Your life is devoted to Me,
Yet so often you struggle to know My will.
Following Me isn’t complicated.

Simply bask in My love.

Others will recognize you have been with Me.
Keep to My path and My way.
Remember not to get caught up with only the concerns
and affairs of this life.

Your journey is much greater.

Follow Me!

Set your sights on My heavenly home
and away from your worries.

Enjoy the road I have set before you.

One of the Bible verses I memorized as a child is:

King James Version:

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path (Psalms 119:105, KJV).

And these verses speak to me as well:

Guide me down the road of your commandments; I love traveling this freeway! Give me a bent for your words of wisdom, and not for piling up loot. Divert my eyes from toys and trinkets, invigorate me on this pilgrim way (Psalm 119:33-40, The Message)

Now listen, you who say, “ Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year, carry on business and make money. Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes (James 4:13-14, NIV).

Although God’s way is not the rose garden some people imagine, it truly is best. Many of us have known a life for a few years without God being Lord and Master, we know we never want to be without Him again. He truly is love and peace.
