Are We There Yet?

The number one question parents hear from their children on roads trips is "are we there yet?"  Children focus on the destination rather than the journey.  The same may be true in our adult lives.  We race through college, map out our careers, start families and before we blink, we are making retirement plans.  No matter what phase of our lives we are in, we wonder, are we there yet?

There may be valid reasons why we want to push the fast forward button on our lives, like recovering from an illness or injury.  God wants us to consider the pause button instead.  Every day is a gift.  There are so many lessons to learn, especially from the challenging days.  Look out the window and enjoy your road trip, one day at a time.
