The Journey

One of the greatest joys of praying the psalms over and over again is that an appreciation for what the Psalmist is going through bursts inside our hearts. Some psalms resonate perfectly with where we are, other psalms resonate perfectly with where we’ve been, and still others will resonate perfectly with where we’re going. I was praying Psalm 88 this morning and it is his dark night of the soul. For you that have been in it and have come out you can appreciate where the Psalmist is, for you that are currently in it you can resonate with it, and for you that I have no idea what I’m talking about, that’s OK just keep journeying with Jesus.

As we pass through the dark night of the soul, that ever so challenging place in life on the other side is a light so bright it can’t be described it can only be enveloped. As we encounter the brilliance of the light of God, though we remember in order to empathize with those still walking through the dark night of the soul, we can’t help but say to those travelers in that place keep going for on the other side is life forever more.

As the body of Christ everyone of us has a Paul in our life that has been placed as we have yet to go; we all have Barnabas is in our life that travel with us right where we are and encourage us for they are in the same place as us; And we have Timothy’s who are coming behind us and have yet to encounter what we’ve encountered, so we get to be pioneers for them just as our Paul’s are pioneers for us. I pray you have eyes to see who the Paul’s are in your life, who the Barnabas’ are in your life, and who the Timothy’s are in your life. We are all in this journey together even though we be at different stages in the process. Keep going my friends others have gone before us, others are traveling with us, and others are coming behind us.
