I can do all things through Him who gives me strength. – Philippians 4:13
The post “Documenting the Journey” had some thoughts about documenting our journey through life just like Numbers 33-34 was a documented summary of the journey the Israelites had been on since their escape from slavery in Egypt.
Like the song Every Good Thing by The Afters suggest, God is the reason for every good thing. For family, friends, children, and the promise for a better future. Therefore, let us document memories with words and pictures. Some are good memories that we will cherish forever and others may be memories we had rather not have.
The thing about life is the stress of being able to balance everything we must do like paying bills, meeting the needs of family, and still trying to accomplish all that we would like to accomplish. Therefore, there is a great need to study our priorities; go after first what is most important and then like the domino effect, our items on the task list start to fall one after another.
No matter what, we can rest assured that the future will be better than the past if we prepare each day with God; having a time set aside to plan and pray for a productive day. Then day by day, we can be thankful for Jesus and lean on the grace of God; making course corrections along the way with the confidence to step ahead.
