Every life tells a story – which story will yours tell? Someday they’re going to take me out and dig a hole in the ground and my wife and my children are going to watch this tent be swallowed up by the earth. What will my story, my journey, tell them on that day? I hope they’ll be able to say along with others, “Thank God – God’s story, God’s journey became His story and His journey. Thank God for his Christian influence in my life.”
As we close out 2018, I pray you will close it out with Jesus close to your side and in your heart. I hope you will commit yourself in the coming year to continue to journey with Jesus. If you will journey with Jesus, or take the journey afresh, the walk will ultimately take you to the place of a joy-filled heart. It is both a joy and a blessing to follow Jesus. The Apostle said it best in Romans 15:13, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him.”
Will you allow your life's story to be written in light of the victory of those who journey with Jesus and experience His kind of joy? If you follow the example of the Lord Jesus and commit yourself to loving and praying and serving like He did during His earthly journey you will experience the eternal joy!
