Sojourners Together

The Web

Yeah, we’re sojourners along this earthly journey of life. Broken and bruised and sometimes just hanging on by a thread of hope and praying our way through! Sometimes our wilderness wanderings are long and tedious with anxious thoughts, fears, panic moments disastrous happenings and just lost trust! Times when we forget to be thankful for just what we have and become critical of the provision made for us. Our manna becomes stale and mundane and we crave the meat that we remember back in the days of bondage. The days when the bad outweighed the good but yet our selfish pleasures led the way and disguised the truth from our hearts and minds. Yeah, we’re travelling, you and I and we and us, through the trenches, and over the hard places and strongholds along the way with roads that are steep and dangerously overloaded with “stuff’ along the way to distract us and take us to our defeat!
Beautiful soul, in these moments of trial, we must be strong, keeping the faith and persevering in the journey of unknowns, ready to face the battle and with the Lord’s help conquer what ever comes.

Safe
David knew those anxious moments and in Psalm 3: 1 knew of his many enemies that were against him, but he praised the Lord anyway in Psalm 3: verses 3,4,5 and 6 “But you O Lord are a shield around me. Your are the glory, the One who hold my head high. I cried out to the Lord and He answered me from His holy mountain. I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for the Lord was watching over me. I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies that surround me on every side….Vs 8, “Victory comes from you Oh Lord.”
So beautiful one, find victory in the One true God today!

Growth In The Wilderness?

James 1: 2, 3, 4

“Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles come your way consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith has been tested your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed you will be perfect and complete needing nothing.”

Our journey in the Christian walk is a narrow path of many different landscapes, distracting us from our focus on the Lord. The refreshing heights of success can make us proud and high-profile for temptation and set us up for a fall. The flat lands can be calm, but temptations rise where boredom lurks, enticing us to excitement. The valleys can be devastating as we encounter some of the lower than low moments in our lives, but it’s in these heights, these depths and these mediocre flat lands of nothingness where rare beauty lies waiting to be discovered and where the Lord calls us away to test our faith. It’s in the low places of failure and discouragement where our weary souls find restoration in His loving embrace, as we submit to His will. If we remain faithful and true to our God and His Truth we will emerge from our valley refreshed and rejuvenated, having grown in the maturity and the wisdom of Christ, our Savior and our teacher.

That for which we strive for as a believer, or our goal is to grow in Christ. Trials then, are reasons to celebrate with the inner joy of the Lord in our hearts. Let’s not lose sight of this precious and most valuable truth.
