Toronto sprawls out in neighboorhoods and side streets. On every corner there’s a different taste, smell, sight. So much variety. So many people. So many ways to see God’s creativity.
Mark and I are headed for a pizza place downtown. But there real point is the journey there. When we travel, we walk, walk and then walk some more. We want to be in the middle of it all.
At some point my feet begin to hurt a little. My tummy growls. I feel the sun grow a bit hot on my face.
Then we cross a street and we are there. And it’s so worth it.
The pizza would have been good no matter what–but it’s even better because it took some work, some living, to get there.
This week you’ll have some walking to do, friend. At times your feet (or heart) will hurt a little. Your tummy (and inner soul hunger) may growl. You may feel the sun (and your circumstances) grow a bit hot on your face.
So I just want to lean in and whisper, “It will be worth it. And if you dare, find some joy in the journey too.”
God has good things ahead for you. And they might be just around the corner.
