Five Minute friday- Journey- The Journey We walk with God

Here is to another Five Minute Friday. The word is "journey"

Life is a journey. Life as a Christian is a journey with God. It is journey of learning and changing by God's word and His love for us.

I was thinking about this a little bit this morning. It was an off morning. Totally off my routine. The big kid was just extra clingy and whiny. So I wasn't able to have my quiet time or even to think much on the day to come. The big kid needed some extra mommy time and I felt God beckoning me to foster that neediness into some loving time even though it was hard. We cuddle. I read some books. Got her some food to eat. Did some stickers in our sticker book.

All the meanwhile, I thought about how my relationship with my big kid should be close enough to the journey I take with God. Sometimes I am needy and whiny. Sometimes I get upset when I don't get my way. Sometimes I am just tired and in a bad mood. Do I want God to be annoyed with me like how I struggled with my big kid this morning? Of course not.

This journey called the Christian life is meant for God to be the stronger one and I am the weak one in need of depending constantly on Him. He lovingly shows that to me even when the journey is hard. I am so appreciative of that. I want to show my big kid the same thing.  


  1. So true. "for when I am weak, then am I strong" for "[His] strength is made perfect in weakness."

    Hope big one is doing better now.

  2. Last week during my chaplain's group meeting at the shelter, I was telling the ladies that God really does see us as His children and He's a very good Father. When we get crabby, He's right there to listen and help us through it. Your words today reminded me of that and now I want my own snuggle time with Him.

  3. Kristina, this is just lovely, and so truly reflective of our relationship with the Almighty. Thank you for writing this.

  4. I constantly think of the comparison of my kids behavior and my own. Corrected by me yet reflecting me. That my kids get disciplined for behavior that I exhibit in different ways to God. In grown up ways. This happened just the other day and caused me to be gentle realizing how gentle God is with me.
