WHAT’S YOUR JOURNEY LIKE?
Since we are in the Season of Lent – and Lent is in a very real way a spiritual journey – I thought perhaps we might want to pause for a moment and reflect on our journey; you know, the journey we take every day, as the scripture says: “From the rising of the sun to Its setting”.
What is your journey like every day and how do you perceive it to be? Would others find your life (if they could live it) exciting? Stimulating? Filled with passion? A life of giving praise to God in all things? Would your experience of life be a journey that others might want to experience, if only briefly?
Is your daily prayer filled with a spirit of thanksgiving for all that you have – your home, your friends, your family, your job, your health, and your good nature? Or is your journey perhaps filled with impediments,
people and situations that block your progress. Do you accentuate the negatives in your job instead of the blessings? Do people annoy you rather than present new possibilities for relationships? Are your gifts and talents underutilized or unappreciated by you? Would others want to journey through your life for a day or even an hour? Does each day reinvigorate you or add to your exhaustion? The only person who can answer these questions is you!
Every day is a new opportunity to see and appreciate the wonder in all things. It’s your choice. The journey that others would love to take with you or the journey you take alone. The choice is yours.
