Joy in the Journey

Sticking with songs and the joy theme…

HERE is a Michael Card tune 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”

– Michael Card’s Joy in the Journey

The lyrics go on to talk about the challenges and still the joy. A little like what we read in this week’s Lectionary 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!
