1960Biscayne-300x198My Friends looking back, the long distances down a highway, as a kid traveling with my parents, the stretch of road seemed endless. Every gas station, and rest stop, our parent would hear those familiar words “are we there yet,” as the journey continued.

Friends, This journey to the promise land is a long one so many stops along the way, so many “thus far the lord has helped us.” in Sickness, death, heartache, pain, so many miles on life’s highway, but, “we’ve come this far by faith Leaning on the Lord, and His holy word.

And we can all say with no reservations, He has never failed us or never will, so we can’t turn around, “because we’ve come this far by faith.” Sometimes if we take a “moment to rest….to look back over the distance we have traveled, we realize we can only rest for a moment,…and we dare not linger” for the Journey has not ended.

“Every step in life should be that of faith, of love of consecration! We should walk in the light, as Jesus is in the light. Christ offers to walk with us through all the journey of life, and cheer our way by his presence. If we do not avail ourselves of his companionship, it is our own fault, our own loss.

If we grope in darkness, it is because we refuse the presence of the only one who can make our way bright and joyful. We need to cultivate that faith which works by love, and purifies the imagessoul. Our greatest danger is in harboring unbelief, and neglecting to cherish the precious love of Jesus.” (E.G.White)

On this road we travel as we face trials and tragedies, highs and lows of life, “we can always see our lives being subject to two forces with a gradient wind representing everything changeable, unpredictable, and distressing.

But operating simultaneously with these gusts of wind is another force that’s even more powerful. It is the sure movement of God’s wise and sovereign purposes, the deep flow of His unchanging love and the power of his Spirit and what that all means to a Child of God.”

Unlike Thomas who stated to Christ “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” But, If we seek Christ and His presence with a passion, each day my friends our focus stays on the Savior’s words when He left the first time.

“Let not your hearts be troubled. If you believe in God; believe also in me. my Father’s house has many mansions. If it were not so, I would tell you,  I now go to prepare a place for you so you 250px-Cloud_in_the_sunlightcan also live there throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity” John 14:1-31 (Paraphrased)

John also states in Rev. 21:21 (NIV) “The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass.” A place “no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived the things God has prepared for those who love Him” 1 Cor. 2:9 (KJV)

And when this journey is over “God will [also] wipe away every tear from [our] eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”Rev.21:4 (NKJV) Soon my friends, very soon


My Friends, where there is no vision, the people perish…..Proverbs 29:18 (KJV)
