Anyone who has traveled with kids for any amount of time has fallen prey to the standard, “Are we there yet?”. The longer the trip, the more often you will hear it. There are many factors that play into how often and how many times you will be asked this question: The age of the child, the length of the trip, the level of anticipation for the destination, just to name a few. At a young age, children have no concept of time. They don’t know how long an hour is, they simply know they are tired of being on the road, and want to get where they are going.
While we do eventually grow to understand time a little better, may we never outgrow the anticipation of our destination. We are on a journey. Hebrews 13:14 “For this world is not our permanent home; we are looking forward to a home yet to come.”
We have a promise of a great destination ahead, so don’t lose hope in the journey. Let your life echo the words of Paul in Philippians 3:14, “I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Press on, my friends. Persevere. Live with anticipation for a greater destination.
