The longest journey of any person is the journey inward..
I wish we could all be sitting and enjoying one another’s company!
This is the kind of quote I would love to use as a small group conversation starter….
I would wonder what you think of when you hear this quote
I wonder what your journey path looks like.
I would wonder if it is a path of comfortable walking or deep valleys and steep hills.
I would wonder what the view is like from the top of the steepest hill and where on this journey inward you have rested and where you have struggled….
And I would share
I would share some about my journey inward…about the times I have walked alone wondering how long till I come across a person who wonders about my wanderings.
I would share about the very sweet moments of the journey where i discovered beauty in places I least expected and how I found the pathways were not near as lonely as I envisioned.
I would share about fellow journey mates (some strangers and some family and friends) who I now feel deeply connected to and am privileged to journey with them to their valleys and mountain tops and invite them to journey with me to mine….
I like the idea of reflecting on the inward journey…
It is a long journey, and I believe it goes as long as we have breath…
It is a delightful journey, for often on this journey, I find places of deep peace and rest….
It is a rewarding journey, for I believe it is where we understand more about ourselves, others and our God.
How is your journey going and who are you sharing it with…
I am willing to sit and listen and wonder with you….if you desire a journey friend!
Journey inward…..and grow!
