“We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.” Romans 5:3-5 NLT
Often times I think life becomes unbearable because after comparing ourselves to others and what the world says is the road to success we never measure up. I have struggled with the concept in my own life until I realized that life is not about reaching a particular destination, it’s about experiencing the journey and all that comes with it. Life has highs, lows, and in-betweens but it never changes how much Christ loves us and wants the very best for us. I pray that as I highlight my journey through my relationship with Christ, your heart will be encouraged to continue experiencing your own. Don’t allow life’s changing circumstances to cause you to throw in the towel. Enjoy every minute because we only get one journey on earth, and if you keep pressing forward through all the twist and turns, you’ll come out better, stronger, and wiser than if you gave up at the start. So be encouraged and share your journey here as well. No one’s journey is perfect but, with Jesus the journey is so much sweeter and lighter to bear. Welcome to my journey diary!
