My husband and I are planning to go on a trip in February. For months we have been looking at the end result, the date when the trip starts; yet we can’t get to that place without a process. For this trip the process includes booking flights, planning a hotel stay, lining up a babysitter, and planning events for each day. Now the first time we planned a trip like this, I have to admit, I was living for the end result. I may have went thru the process but didn’t enjoy or see the purpose in it. This time, however, I see the point in the process. I see a glory in the process. Looking forward to and enjoying planning something together has been great. Not just going through it to get it done, but to be spending time together, enjoying and learning more about each other through the process. I’m learning to praise in the process.
Kind of like smelling the roses as we walk up the mountainside path. Yes, the sunset view at the top is the end result. . . yet there are things to enjoy and things to learn along the way.
I’ve been thinking recently about how much our walk with God needs to be the same way… Yes we might have things in mind that we view as the end or the point of our existence here… Yet what about the process. . .What process do we go through to get to the end?….
