It is nearing the end of October, and it is time to check in. How is your journey so far? For me it has been one crazy, hectic year. I’m sure you’ve noticed by my lack of posts and encouragements. I’m sorry – really I am. But my confidence is not in my ability to encourage you to continue, but in God who is the One who motivated you on this journey in the first place. I have prayed regularly for each of you that He would help you complete the journey this year. But even if you haven’t, there is a lifetime to grow and learn and glean from God’s Word.
Tom and I recently took Bradley and Norah on a train ride through northern GA into TN. It was a fun and beautiful trip. The picture above shows one of the RR crossings we passed along the way. It made me think of reading God’s Word. If our time with God is the train and the roads we pass our circumstances in life, how appropriate that we stop our circumstances, no matter what we are to make room for our time with God. Do you obey the RR crossing signs or do you ignore them? As there is wisdom in the car stopping for the train, there is wisdom in choosing to stop long enough to allow God’s Word to penetrate our time and attention.
I hear a train whistle blowing. Make plans to seek it out and enjoy the ride!
I recently enjoyed the following video. It is worth your time, and I pray it will inspire you as it did me.
