|Year of Journeying with God 2017
point we are at in our journey of life, we believe we
are also on a journey with God at our side. Christian
life is about sharing the Gospel message wherever you
are and to do that, knowing that God is with you, is a
huge support, available to everyone.
So what is
it like to be journeying with God? When things are going
well and life is good, then it is in those moments that
thanking God for the blessings you have, for the
guidance you have received, can be done by worshipping
and praying with a thankful heart. When you are at a low
point and life is tough, then the knowledge that God is
with you, supporting you and loving you, encouraging you
and guiding you, confirms for you that God is your best
anonymous author of Footprints used the image of life’s
footprints in the sands of time to illustrate that God
walks with you every step of the way through your life,
no matter what. The conversation with God about the
periods of time where there was a single set of
footprints, being at the lowest, saddest times of life,

carries you. This story provides a clear and powerful
message of how it is when you are journeying with God.
with God is also about experiencing this life with all
of our senses tuned in to how God perceives everything
around us and our responses to it should be how God
would want us to behave.
If you too
want to explore journeying with God, then you will
always be welcome in the Church and at our many events,
to continue your journey in life, among people with
often very similar needs to yours, to explore and
continue journeying with God, helping to spread the
Gospel message to others.
