"I press toward the mark of the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" Philippians 3:14
"Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us" Hebrews 12:2
Did you know we have a race to finish? We have a journey to finish. Which is our faith in Christ Jesus. We have a task to complete. Which is God's perfect will in our lives. We have to keep going through everyday with our head held high. We have to keep enduring through life. Sometimes our journey can be long and tiring, other times it can be exciting and full of surprises. Sometimes our journey takes us to unexpected places. God takes us to unexpected places in our lives at times. But it is always in His perfect timing. "For God's timing is perfect". We may not always understand where our journey is taking us but everyone one of us that has been given life are going through our own unique journey.
We should not look at other's people's own paths with God, but what we should do we should is accept the task God has given us each uniquely. If we were all going on the same journey we would not make a difference in this world. Because we would all be doing the same thing. God wants certain tasks in life completed for His perfect will to be done. Not only to help ourselves, but to help others.
Our journey with God should not feel pressured but should be filled with joy and perseverance and love. Remember that "Life is a journey, not a destination".
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" Philippians 4:13. Whenever you feel worn out on your journey remember this verse. With God in us we can carry out the task that God alone has given to us.
