Treasure the Moments from Your Journey

When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. Luke 2:17-19

Everyone is on a journey in this life. The journey is not without a struggle. Even Joseph and Mary were on a journey. If you have seen The Nativity Story then you know that they had to persevere through many trials to get to Bethlehem.

Traveling by foot and on a donkey for miles on end is unimaginable for today’s transportation methods. Of course, we cannot forget that Mary was pregnant with Jesus on the way under less than ideal circumstances. Joseph and Mary thought that they were on a journey to register for the census. They had no idea that there was a bigger purpose for their journey. Nonetheless, the events that happened before and after the birth of Jesus were nothing short of a miracle. Mary treasured all that happened in her heart.

Throughout Jesus’ life, he modeled being on a journey with two purposes: to seek and save the lost. As we celebrate the birth of Jesus again this year, there will still be people who cross our path that need to have that divine experience as people did whenever they encountered Jesus. Whether or not you travel this holiday season, it may seem as if the only purpose is to celebrate the holidays. In some cases, you may be dreading spending time with certain people at all.

If you look and listen carefully, there will be moments that you experience with family, friends, and strangers that can evolve into that divine experience. These moments can change people’s lives forever. Take the opportunity to create memorable moments this holiday season and treasure the memories made on your journey as Mary did.

The spiritual path – is simply the journey of living our lives. Everyone is on a spiritual path; most people just don’t know it.
