On The Way: Being On The Way With Jesus - Day 1 with Ann Voskamp

On The Way: Being On The Way With Jesus - Day 1 with Ann Voskamp

I know: it was a Lenten journey led by @annvoskamp. 

But its truths are for every day of the year, not just for the 40 days of Lent. Because, what value is there in changing to new ways for 40 days, if the other 325 days of the year we return to our old ways?


Jesus once proclaimed to His disciples: “I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE.” ~John 14:6

So, the only way forward in this life is JESUS, the Way Himself. 


DAY 1: You know you are on the way when you don’t let anything get in the way between you and the Way Himself… Whatever you are facing today on the way, you always always always get to begin again - and keep beginning again. 

God is earnestly seeking you. God is looking for you because He wants you close enough that you can look right into His heart for you. 

God’s first and shortest question in all of recorded history was: “Where are you?” (Genesis 3:9) - asked of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden after they had disobeyed His commandment and had sinned. He asked the question, not so that He would know the answer, but that they themselves might know the answer. “Where have you gone, in relation to Me? Where are you, if you are not here with Me?” 

You see, God wants us to re-orient to the topography of intimacy.
