The Journey

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Luke 2:8-21

No matter how much we desire for our life journey to be routine and steady, it just doesn't play out that way. We live in an immensely active world, and while we like to think that the world centers around us and our plans, the truth is we're really only one of billions of people navigating life simultaneously. That being the case, unexpected and sometimes unwanted changees are inevitable. The good news is that as followers of Christ, God is with us--guiding, encouraging, providing for, protecting and watching over every single step we take.

Luke 2 tells us of Mary and Joseph's inconvenient journey to Bethlehem for the census. As I took in these verses I spent a few minutes imagining myself in their shoes. I guarantee they would have preferred to skip this arduous journey, but their situation dictated otherwise. So they set out, not knowing what to expect with Mary's pregnancy, not knowing what they would find in Bethlehem, not having a reservation at an Inn once they arrived.

Scary, tiring and stressful are just a few of the words that came to my mind as I considered this experience. But this newly married couple pressed on, choosing to trust God in and through every step of the journey--and God provided.

What does this passage show about how God can use difficult circumstances to teach us to more fully rely on Him? How has God guided, protected, provided for and sustained you in past hard circumstances? Will you join me today in trusting God with our journeys--our physical location and situation as well as our spiritual state and place? He will sustain and provide!! Tami
