For the joy set before him [Jesus] endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. - Hebrews 12:2 (NIV)
While living in eastern Kansas, I often traveled across the state to its western side. Driving in that area is like driving on a giant pool table. Only rarely does a tree break up the flat horizon of the prairie. Many people view this hours-long drive as something to endure....
Today, I will look for God’s joy on my journey.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
