Like that child in the back seat, I keep asking. Wondering. Waiting.
This journey has had so many twists and turns. We’ve had some really great stops along the way, and I’ve picked up some great treasures from our visits.
But sometimes (like today) I just want to throw off the seatbelt, grab God’s face between my hands, look Him straight in the eye and shout,
“ARE WE ALMOST THERE YET?
HOW MUCH LONGER?”
Today, He looked me straight in the eye and gently and firmly said,
“Yes, child, we are there.
We are there today,
We are there tomorrow,
We are there next week, next month, next year.
Every new lesson,
every special moment,
every challenge met,
I AM there with you.
It’s not about a destination,
but the journey,
So the answer is,
Yes, we are there
I AM with you, guiding, leading, teaching you.
So sit back down, fasten your seatbelt, and be ready to ride, because I have some wonderful things in store for you…
Jeremiah 29:11 (NRSV)
“For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.”
