Enjoy the Journey

Enjoy the Journey

By Wayne McDonald

John 10:10 (Amp.), “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” Are you enjoying your life? Are you on track with the Lord’s destiny for you? Are you following Him with all your heart?

These are some questions that you need to ask yourself. Jesus said, “I came so that you may have and enjoy life.” Even when you follow the Lord there are going to be seasons that you go through that will feel mundane. However, they will pass and His overwhelming sense of life and joy will return.

Enjoy the journey! Live in the present. So many times we get robbed because we are so focused on what happened yesterday. Or we are so focused on what the future holds that we don’t enjoy the present. Live in the present; enjoy your home, kids, spouse and everything else the Lord has blessed you with.

Don’t allow fear of tomorrow to steal from your present joy today. I don’t know what tomorrow holds, but I know who holds tomorrow. No matter what life sends your way realize that there will always be an abundance of grace for you. So take all the pressure off and enjoy the journey.
