Strength For The Journey is a devotional blog that is specifically dedicated to the purpose of Christian living.
As one who has counseled individuals in varying settings for the past fifteen years, I’ve come to realize that life has a way of squeezing and discouraging the best of us at times, regardless of how strong our spiritual lives might be. Sure, like many of you I too look forward to the encouraging lift that our spirits get from the heartfelt prayer, genuine praise and worship, and a strong / relevant sermons that we’re privileged to take part in on Sunday mornings. Many of us are even further privileged to also receive a healthy portion of solid biblical teaching during the middle of the week. But I have found through the countless counseling sessions and other forms of interaction with Christians that span almost every spiritual, social, economic and educational spectrum of life, that more than anything else, Christians are constantly seeking out that which will encourage their soul and strengthen their spirit along this journey called life.
For this very reason I felt the need to create an on-line space where Christians can come on a daily basis and do just that; digest scripture and scriptural-based information that will strengthen them for the journey!
So, what can you expect to find on this blog? You can expect to find regular morning devotional passages, helpful articles and other information directly related to the overall topic, brief video devotional messages addressing a particular portion of scripture, testimonials, and brief sermon video clips. You will also have the wonderful privilege of participating in discussions and commenting on the information that is shared on the blog, and you are especially encouraged to comment on the things that bless and strengthen your life in a particular way.
Be Blessed, and enjoy the journey! – Michael Bethune
