The Journey

journey

O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent?
    Who shall dwell on your holy hill? Psalm 15:1

We never start the journey at the summit or even the base of the of our destination..Arriving there is a lifelong process. How are we to get there?*

Jeremiah 6:16- Follow the ancient paths
“Go stand at the crossroads and look around.
    Ask for directions to the old road,
The tried-and-true road. Then take it.
    Discover the right route for your souls.

Matthew 10:9-10 Travel light
“Don’t think you have to put on a fund-raising campaign
before you start.
You don’t need a lot of equipment.
You are the equipment,
and all you need to keep that going
is three meals a day.

Philippians 2:15-16  Be careful in everything you do on the way
Live clean, innocent lives as children of God,
shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.

Hold firmly to the word of life;

Follow the path that is tried and true, don’t let life weigh you down, be a light in a dark world…
