The Personal Journey 365, the beginning
…Mary, who sat before the Master, hanging on every word he said. Luke 10:38
The Personal Journey is the intimate one-day-at-time personal walk with Jesus Christ. It is about developing the most intimate relationship with Him through our day-to-day experiences. It is the essence of understanding who we are in Christ and how to walk victoriously in every area of our lives.
The Personal Journey is a journey of change,
A journey of sweet surrender,
A journey of splendid renewal,
A journey of unmistakable revelation,
A journey of restored relationships,
A journey of complete recovery,
And most assuredly, it is a journey of unconditional love for the journey of a lifetime.
When we first make the choice to turn our lives and our wills over to Jesus Christ, one of the most amazing things begins to blossom within us. Deep down within our inner being the glory of God through the power of the Holy Spirit testifies with our spirit. We discover that we are chosen to follow this path of amazing grace –unmerited unending favor.
To attempt to explain this journey in mere human words is impossible for it is a journey through this world, but not of this world. It can only be understood through personal experience. By simply choosing to surrender our own current understanding to the trust and care of Jesus Christ, the answers to all that we have been searching begins to unfold.
This is a journey of relationship, and as with any relationship we begin by communicating. This communication, also called prayer, is not just a monologue it is a dialogue with Christ. It is through this Spiritual dialogue, and the use of the Bible for discernment, that we begin to discover the true nature of our Lord. We are in essence sitting at the feet of Jesus Christ, like Mary in the story of Martha and Mary in the Bible (Luke 10:38-41), listening to every word He says.
Thus begins the journey with Christ, the one who becomes our very best friend, a friend who will never leave or forsake us. He will never disappoint us, but rather show us life from a completely different perspective –His own.
