I’m more of a destination guy.
I know where I want to go, and want to make it happen as quickly and painlessly as possible. The journey always felt more like a means to the destination, than it did a time filled with it’s own opportunity.
For the last year and a half, our ‘destination’ has been England. Let’s do whatever we need to do to make that happen. I never really considered the possibility that God has things to teach us in the preparation. Sure, you can always learn things along the way, but the real point is getting to the final destination.
But I’m starting to realize that both the journey and the destination carry equal and unique chances to learn and grow. It’s only when I break my gaze from the final destination that I can truly appreciate what God is teaching in the midst of the journey.
Even within the last few weeks we see how God’s timing is not our timing; and whether or not our plans come together the way we expect, it’s all a measure of His grace. But we would not have had the opportunity to experience those things without the journey. Thanks for coming on this journey with us.
