I have been on many trips around the world and frankly speaking, I didn’t know how to enjoy the journey. At first I enjoyed flying but after a few years I simply wanted to get there like the journey never happened. When I realised that flying was inevitable, I starting praying to God about these journeys and how to prepare for them. God begun to show me how to enjoy the journey. I began preparing myself for these journeys better and severing every moment. Today I will check in online and zip through the airport like a pro. I arrive four hours before the flight and settle into the lounge with a nice book at hand as I sip on some exotic coffee or tea. I dress right, eat right, talk right and take my sweet time with the journey. I am even prepared for those moments when things don’t go according to plan. The delays, other travellers, children and even the transit airports.
Life is the journey, heaven is the destination. Don’t rush through it. Enjoy every moment. Take time to appreciate the good times and learn how to make the most of the bad. You will have to deal with setbacks and setups but you can make them all step ups if you understand the journey. Failure is never final but an opportunity to do it again with better experience. You are being moulded by the things you go through. As you make the right choices in your situations, you become the result of those choices. Don’t rush life. Enjoy every step of the process
SCRIPTURE READING: Hebrews 5:1-10 For every high priest chosen from among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. He can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is beset with weakness. Because of this he is obligated to offer sacrifice for his own sins just as he does for those of the people. And no one takes this honor for himself, but only when called by God, just as Aaron was. So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”; as he says also in another place, “You are a priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.” In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence. Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him, being designated by God a high priest after the order of Melchizedek.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord, through this journey may I enjoy the process that it comes with. May I be fully prepared for what is ahead of me carrying the knowledge and understanding of what is required of me, Amen
