Where are you headed, but also how?

This photo was taking on a summer’s day in the UK (honest, despite the dark clouds!!). It is part of Hay Tor which is a well known granite outcrop in the area where we used to live. Many people come to it each year as part of their visiting the Dartmoor National Park.

Some will hike or cycle many kilometres to reach it. Others will park their car at a further point and walk up. Some stop at the higher car park and then it is only a few minutes to reach the top. Occasionally you might see someone paragliding or using some other aerial means to pass over the tor. The sheep and wild ponies graze and wander by meanwhile.

Where are headed at present in life? How are you seeking to get there?

I don’t just mean literally if you are about to go on holiday ( though if so, have a great time).

What are you on with in life? It is good to reflect on this regularly though without getting over obsessed about it!

Some of Jesus’ words spoken amid the concerns and worries there can be in life – “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness…” (Matthew 6:33)

How might these words speak into our lives and where we are headed? How might seeking God’s kingdom impact our priorities, who we are and what we do?

It is not just about where we are headed but how we get there. The other day for instance I read from the book of Proverbs,

“Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out” (10:9)

One of the Merriam Webster online definitions of integrity is “the quality or state of being complete or undivided”.

  • Integrity – it is a big topic.
  • Integrity – ┬ásomething vital for how we make our journey.
  • Integrity – a challenge to us all to consider how are we living. Both when we are seen and unseen. In our thoughts, words and actions.
  • Integrity – is there a particular area of our lives we need to address?

How is the journey we are all on?
