Life is a Journey
(Reflections on “Life is a Journey from “Soul Friendship” by Ray Simpson)
Life is a journey ….
… From pretending to being real.
… From our false identity to our real identity in Christ.
…From not knowing myself to learning the truth of who I am.
… From being broken to being made whole.
…from meandering through life to living purposefully.
… from travelling without a compass to following the True North.
… From what I do to who I am.
… From disappointment to hope.
… From insecurity to anchored.
… From fear to confidence.
… From being ego-centred to Christ centred.
… From compulsion to contemplation.
… From resignation to relinquishment.
… From a clutching life to a life offered.
… From being chained to being free.
… From living in the shallows to sailing in the depths.
… From twisted perspective to holy insight.
… From being empty to increasingly filled with the Holy Spirit.
… From tone deaf to God’s music to dancing my soul out.
… From intentional isolation to the Grace Saturated Embrace.
… from restless inside to peace like river.
… From being an orphan to being a child of God
BUT MOST OF ALL
It is to be loved
By the Prodigal Father,
Who is always watching for us to come home;
By my Gracious Saviour,
Who substituted His life for mine on the cross;
And by the Holy Spirit,
