Life is often called a journey. It’s our walk, of course. But a train journey is a good comparison, too.

There’s a start and destination, with a number of stations where we might pause or hurry through.

And whereas we see only the landscape at our window, God sees the whole track. Every station, every delay, every fellow passenger, every change in the scenery and weather – all known to God.

But we still have freewill to enjoy the journey or not. We can divert ourselves and hardly notice the journey. Or complain that our seat is uncomfortable, or that fellow travellers are inconsiderate.

Or we can be positively faithful that all is well, we’re on the right track, and we’ll arrive safely.

And then, no doubt, we will.

How do we know this? From the Bible, of course:

“For a man’s ways are in full view of the Lord, and he examines all his paths.” (Proverbs 5:21 NIV)

Look at these verses too: Isaiah 46:10, Psalms 31:23-24, 2 Peter 1:10-11.

Now sit back and enjoy travelling life’s journey!
