This series and set of prints is one that presents not only an attitude (good one), but presents to each of us what real “Joy” is suppose to be all about.  Have you ever thought about what real “Joy” is?  Who it comes from?  This world has a warped sense by equating “Joy” with worldly pleasure, a sense of accomplishment, accolade, success, winning…  But each of those things are fleeting at best, lacking even the remotest concept of “who” gives us REAL “Joy”.

Joy In The Journey is a “prescription” of sorts, presented to us in eleven (11) beautiful prints beginning with the statement:

To Enjoy The Journey

Series Focus

The focus of this series of prints is remembering to finish our course with “Joy”, making the decision that I’m stick’n with it!  Contrary to what people might think, these reminders are NOT for the person who is nearing the end of their journey alone, is serves as a reminder to everyone that we can experience that “Joy” each day.  Paul’s declaration in Acts 20:24 served as a launching pad for this series from a sermon preached at our church in June 2011:

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.
Acts 20:24 | KJV

Our Course

Paul states that he “might finish my course with joy, and the ministry” which he knew was “received of the Lord Jesus“.  With some research and prayer, there are 10 items here which lay out of us the “track” if you will to how we can have “Joy In The Journey” right now, so that we will be able “to finish our course“.  Nehemiah said at the end of Nehemiah 8:10:

“…for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
Nehemiah 8:10 | KJV
