4 Tips for Surviving Long Journeys

  1. Seek God’s Face — Solitude time. Time away from all the noise of the world…people, internet, TV, etc. To listen for God’s path, road, trail, journey, adventure, adoptionvoice.
  2. Spend Time in God’s Word–meditate on Philippians 4:8 and Philippians 4:13 and Romans 8:1-2.
  3. Surround Yourself with Encouraging Words — through praise music and people who speak words of encouragement everywhere they go.
  4. Support Others — I find myself strengthened and encouraged and blessed when I spend time seeking out others going through difficult times in their lives whom I can encourage and bless.

When your journey is long or challenging or full of obstacles, what is the Velcro in your life that helps you hang on and not give up?
