I am the worst traveller!!! I hate the idea of moving myself from the comforts of Home. Jeev on the other hand, loves to travel, enjoy the travel and likes to talk about the things that he sees…. from the smallest shrub to the tallest building!!! Whattey combination!!!
I am making my year end post from the state of Florida miles away from my home, Saint Louis, and the thought of sitting through the drive, back home, for another 12 to 14 hours, has already set me on the grumbling mode!!! 😀 And to top it all, my husband and brother were sneaking a conversation on whatsapp about how I sleep during the drive and that pushed me to challenge the boys about how I would stay awake all thru the drive without sleeping!!! Truly, I regret it. 😦
Well, not that I don’t like Holidaying and having fun…. it is just the travels!!! I dislike the back-breaking long drives. I just don’t like them…
The Israelites were in the same hurry to get to the promised land. They wanted to be done quickly with the dry, boring, wilderness life. If God wanted to get them to the promised land quickly, he very well could have!!! If God wanted to deliver the Israelites from the Egyptians by just wiping them away at one go, He very well could have (Exodus 9:15)!!! But there was a purpose behind why He did what He did!!! And the same God has got a purpose behind your wilderness experience and mine!!!
Every trial has a start time and an end time. Take heart, He’s got the whole thing in His powerful hands!!! Trust Him whole heartedly for He knows where you are today and He knows where you are going to be. The place where you are going to be is truly a place flowing with milk and Honey!!! Who complains for the Milk and Honey…. Nobody does!!! 🙂 So while in the thorns and thistles, praise God for the milk and Honey that He promised, and make your ‘journey’ to the promised land with ease, style and joyfulness of Heart!!!
“If God is for us, who can be against us?” Romans 8:31
Jeev and I would like to wish all you guys a very blessed, prosporous and a joyful 2014!!!
Jeev, Varna and Jaden
