Live the journey.

“So they camped or travelled at the LORD’s command, and they did whatever the LORD told them through Moses.” Numbers 9:23 NLT

Don’t you feel like you are spending most of your time thinking about the future, rather than living the present? I know I sure do. It’s not a crime, certainly. Yet by doing so, we often miss out on what God wants us to do: live where you are, give what you can give and flourish. Once, during a church service, the pastor set up an interesting task: on a piece of paper given, we were, in small groups, to jot down all the places we remembered having lived in, studied in, visited in (whether a week or two months) so far. Then we had to compare, the person having travelled the most “winning”, and speak about our experiences.

It made everyone wonder: who would we be today, if we hadn’t gone to all of those places? We discussed and agreed: that one, every stay contributed to the person in us now; and two, that even in the worst experiences, God would teach us a lesson or two, useful for our present now. Even the shortest stay somewhere changed our heart and mind somehow.

There are times where you don’t see where you’re headed or why a trial is happening. Just keep going, with faith in the Lord; for He knows what he is doing. Whether you feel comfortable or not “camping” somewhere, there is a reason: His, not yours. The same when you “travel”: You may be wanted out of a comfort zone, or able to touch people better, somewhere else. Carry no worries: for everywhere you shall be, so is He: magically in control, knowing you more than you know yourself. Have peace: for God chose you, once a mere “nobody”, to become a spectacular “somebody”. Act like Moses and trust in the Lord. let Him work in you, carry you to places you never thought you’d be or guide you through things you never thought you’d have to do. Let him change you; and you’ll see for yourself the amazing life He has in store for you.

Prayer: “Lord, please give me the strength to cherish the present, learn from the experiences I am given and grow in my faith, trusting you completely. You are all-knowing and have something in mind for me through this camping and/or travelling. Please, show me what you want me to see.”


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
