How could any of us have known the journey we would begin, when Abba tapped us on the shoulder and started to reveal His Truth to us? Twists and turns, hills and valleys, paths well traveled and paths seldom seen…joy and sadness, laughing and crying, people in, people out, dead ends, forks in the road, rabbit trails and gigantic mountains placed right in our way that stop us in our tracks…overwhelming us with their magnitude and size, leaving us at a loss as to how we will ever conquer the obstacle in front of us.
Some give up, some grow tired, some become lost, some become discouraged and some even turn around and start the trek back to where they began, giving up on the journey altogether. We lose things, we gain things, we throw off things that are weighing us down and we pick up new things along the way that make the trip easier.
Along the way we are changed…forever changed. Purified, refined, transformed, strengthened, focused, committed and equipped. We learn to speak a new way, understand things we had never considered before, shown things our eyes would never see on their own, think in ways we have never thought before…we become new and the old has gone away.
Still…the road that leads to The Kingdom of Elohim always beckons us onward, always onward. There is a new life waiting there for those who are His and have forsaken all to follow Him. A completely new way of life that we cannot fully comprehend now in this flesh that we inhabit, but we shall be changed.
1 Corinthians 15:51-55
51 See, I speak a secret to you: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible has to put on incorruption, and this mortal to put on immortality. 54 And when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall come to be the word that has been written, “Death is swallowed up in overcoming.” 55 “O Death, where is your sting? O grave, where is your overcoming?”
Always, seek the truth…rethink, relearn, return.
