Are We There Yet?

June 22, 2011 | 5 comments

After a lot of time on the road already this summer, I’m finding that my life can look like a road trip. Because on the road of life, we encounter detours and potholes and heavy traffic, but the destination is always worth it.

I’m writing over at Faith Radio Net today, about road trips and living life to the full and enjoying the scenery on the way Home.

Will you join me there today?

A short update: Thank you for your continued prayers for our family as we walk through a valley. When we keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, we see Him at work.

    I feel the irritations, the struggles of the journey. But as you said–it is and will be worth it.

    Your Road Trip analogy is ‘spot on,’ Jennifer.

    And your words remind me to enjoy the adventure of the Road Trip and not wait for the fun to start until I arrive at the destination.

    And traveling with kids is a trip in itself.

    We’ve found that when our kids ask, “Are we there yet?” a simple, repetitive response from Mom or Dad of “In about an hour” – no matter if its really 3 hours or a mere 10 minutes – eventually nips that question in the bud.

    Road trips are a lot more fun when there is joy in the journey.

    I went there and read it. I take for granted what a talented writer you are because you easily and seamlessly carry your reader along. Thanks for the message, the Truth, and the reminder.

    And Jesus said “I am the Way.” And He completes us in Him and we are already there with God, and there is now no condemnation…

    What a vivid picture you’ve painted here, Jennifer! Thank you for sharing your heart.

    I got very weary of the 75 miles between my house and my parents’ house, when I was driving it once a week (or so) during the last three years of my mom’s life. Now, when I drive that same 75 miles, every minute is precious.

    Still praying for you through this valley and beyond.
