"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." ~ Romans 12:12
Sometimes I think we forget to enjoy the journey. We get so caught up with arriving at our destination that we forget to enjoy all of the side trips along the way. We start to become stressed and irritated when it's taking us longer than we think it should.
We need to learn how to enjoy the journey.
We need to remember to be joyful, patient, and faithful.
We need to remember that it is all a gift from God. That it's not about reaching some magical point. That it's about every day giving it the best we can give.
There's always joy to be found. Sometimes we just have to look for it a little harder than other times. And being patient happens with practice. And being faithful is always a good thing.
We need to remember that the journey is part of the destination. And that the destination would not be worth it if we didn't enjoy the journey.
And that is this gal's view for today.
