Travel With Nothing But Your Thoughts

What’s the longest you’ve ever been on the road, alone?  The longer the trip, the more your thoughts invade your attention.  Whether these are good or bad thoughts, we get stuck and consumed by our inner self.

Intricate, unanswerable questions plague our intimate conversations.  What if?  Should I?  Shouldn’t I?  What happens if I do this or that?  These questions are strange, remote to our answerability.  Our expectations of the unknown are usually ideal.  But it’s the uncertainty that invade our ideal perspectives.  It’s hard because we always want the best or expect the best from circumstances.

We live in an ideal, high expectancy society in which such things like the “American Dream” is possible and expected for us to believe and think.  So of course, when we travel along, destination and outcomes unknown, we still expect some decency and benefits to go our way.  Traveling a long distance only to be let down, whether it’s to visit someone or shop to find nothing, we get to experience that emptiness of the disappointment.

Our lives are filled with these moments of let down.  Whether it’s from traveling long distances or doing bad on a test or exam, our outcomes may not be what we expected or wanted.  Instead of focusing on the outcomes, we need to reflect on the process and the journey of travel.  We tend to forget the tedious and time consuming effort that goes into the exhaustive preparation.

Same goes with relationships and our relationship with God.  We need to put so much more time into these relationships than we may get out of it.  But, it’s necessary to give our time to Him, even if things aren’t going our way, we still must continue to serve Him.  He will never disappoint YOU!
