For two years in a row, we’ve taken road trips for our vacations, each two weeks long. On our first trip, we went to Washington DC & our second trip is to the West Coast, ala Oregon & California. My husband, the penultimate saint, has done the bulk of the driving for both trips, so maybe I provide some comic relief & moral support. But think about it in terms of family bonding, since there’s no wifi nor DVD player in the car. Mostly, we’re doing pretty well & our three teenagers can say they’ve driven across America.
For me, I think that life is a long road trip, a journey with God with unexpected twists, ups, downs, sometimes tiring & sometimes joyful.
So here are a few thoughts about my road trip with God & maybe they’ll have some tread in your life:
- Focusing in the car is important , but don’t neglect to look out the windows bc God has a big world around us!
- Listen & don’t just watch – listen in the car but also listen in your heart as God has some amazing whispers & company to keep with you!
- Traveling companions are helpful because you see & experience things in different ways than just by yourself.
- Keep going. Life has struggles, dark times, hot seasons, smelly moments & glorious discoveries.
