Genesis 1:31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

We were traveling in Alaska and met a man who said he had been in Anchorage 2 days and had seen all there was to see. We asked about various places in Anchorage and he said he never heard of them. He was off as fast as he could go to the next destination. For him, travel was all about the destination not the trip. Unfortunately many of us spend our lives that way. We are moving from one destination (age, event or other) to the next, not noticing anything between. Life on this earth is about the trip. Our destination – if we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior – is held securely in God’s hands. The time we will get there is also in His hands. We are here to enjoy the trip and appreciate what God created and what He allows us to see and do. Our question is are we enjoying the trip? Let us first be assured of our ultimate destination and then let us trust God and his timing for all the mini-side stops along our trip. When we do that we will not long for past side-stops but will enjoy where we are when we are, leaving the past and future in the hands of the One Who made us, loves us and saves us from evil and from ourselves.
