So often in life, we try to reach a destination. We think we will be happy once we have children, once we get that promotion at work, or when we no longer struggle financially. Life is a journey though, we never “arrive” at a particular destination per say, and everyone’s journey is going to be different. Since God is constantly at work (worketh) within us according to Philippians 2:13, then it suggests that our journey is never complete. While we may be in a better place today than we were at this time last year, we never totally “arrive” so we do not have to be hard on ourselves that we have not reached some unrealistic destination. Children often understand this concept. They are always excited about the possibilities that lie ahead. They embrace the journey! The Bible admonishes us to receive God’s Kingdom as a child (Mark 10:15). Don’t beat yourself up on today. Understand that life is a journey, be excited about the possibilities that lie ahead, and know that “he which hath begun a good work in you” will continue to perform it during your journey (Philippians 1:6).
