When I started this Journey, I thought it would be smooth sailing, a clear shot, and whatever easy metaphors a person can say; but instead, the way is like a winding road made like spaghetti. Twists and turns, up hill, down dale, the Way often looks like you meet yourself going and coming.

In other words, confusing!

When life seems to be all in a muddle, it’s time to stop and mentally reboot.  Focus on your priorities. Have I started doing things that really don’t advance my calling? Have I let extra stuff cloud my vision?

If you have a clear vision, you are a lot less likely to get sidetracked by all the minutia of life.

I’ve found what works for me to mentally reboot is to stop. Sit. Reflect awhile, then pray earnestly for renewed direction, vigor and leading.

He has promised to guide if I but let Him.

Who is leading this Journey, anyway?

The Journey is our way Home. There is nothing more important than making that final destination. Jesus paid my ticket there, but I have to walk it out. In October, I will be observing the things that happen while traveling the Journey and writing a daily post about my observations.

Because I like to stretch myself, I will also do a challenge within a challenge - 31 days of 5 minute free writes. I will take a topic and run with it, writing furiously for 5 minutes, tailoring it to relate to my theme of examining life along the Journey.
