Sticking with the joy theme, we’ll re-visit a post last seen almost 3 years to the day …
HERE is a Michael Card song called Joy in the Journey which includes these lines:
“There is a joy in the journey,
There’s a light we can love on the way.
There is a wonder and wildness to life
And freedom for those who obey”
The lyrics go on to talk about the challenges and still the joy. A little like what we read in these verses from Matthew
“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” ~ Matthew 11:28-30
May good perspective be with us, enabling us to be more Christ-like and providing more joy in the journey even when the traveling is hazardous…
Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit!
