Don't Miss The Journey

As you take a trip make sure you don’t miss the journey.  God has much for you along the way, we just need to slow down and enjoy.

My wife’s family recently came to visit us and we wanted to take a weekend getaway together.  I tend to often be the planner/coordinator and my desire is for everyone to have a great time.  I put a lot of pressure on myself to put together an excellent trip for the group.  I spend countless hours researching hotels, reading reviews, and finding things to do.  I want to maximize the time away and the dollars spent.

 

Because of this there is a danger that I can take a trip and miss the journey.  With all the work and effort that goes into it I can find myself coming home and realizing I totally missed out on the trip.  I was so busy planning and coordinating that I missed out on the relationships and memories.  I forget for a moment that it is not necessarily about what we do but who I am doing it with.

 

We had a wonderful weekend away.  Great conversations were had, new experiences were shared, and memories were made.  We took a trip and I didn’t miss the journey.  As you take a trip make sure you don’t miss the journey.  God has much for you along the way, we just need to slow down and enjoy.
