Enjoying the Journey

One of God’s priceless gifts is friendship.  Through the years I have begun to learn the lasting value of a true friend.  This week I was talking on the phone to a man who has been a constant encouragement to me when the Lord reminded me of this truth.  The right kind of friendships form a safety net for life.  They become God’s instruments to guard you from the wrong path and to guide you to the right one.

This blog has become for me a source of sharing with so many friends.  An unexpected blessing has been the opportunity to gain many new friends along the way.  Some of my blogging friends I have never met in person, but I am grateful for this medium of communication.  It has been overwhelming to see the readership grow and to receive much encouragement.

When I began writing it was basically for me.  That may sound selfish, but my primary object was to record things I wanted to remember and hone my writing skills.  Reflecting on God and His goodness and then writing it down does something for your soul.  This joyful discipline of writing has been good for me.

Over the last several weeks I have met people everywhere I have traveled who have said they were reading the posts.  I wanted to take a moment and just say thank you.  Thank you for taking time in your busy day to read my ramblings.  It would be a joy to hear from you.

I am “Enjoying the Journey” and I hope you are too.

    We are presently living in a rural area where we are no longer able to get high-speed internet. This has hindered us from enjoying sermons and being encouraged via live stream from Crown and other fundamental institutions. Your blog has served to fill that gap in our lives. We enjoy your “sermons” in print. Thank you for taking the time to share. Tell your family ,”Hello!” We are encouraged by your steadfastness of faith and faithful service to our Lord.

    Some time back, I started to write and tell you what a blessing some of your posts have been and how timely many of them were to meet particular needs in my own heart. I didn’t finish the note back then, but with this post I decided I should let you know you have been a blessing to me. Thank you!

    Always enjoy reading your posts Bro. Pauley. It was great speaking with you briefly last week at Berea as well.

    Thank you Scott Pauley for taking the time to write Enjoying The Journey!. I make sure I read every one, they are very helpful in this time we live. I heard a sermon once at a place called Camp CoBeAc. The place of scripture was Psalm 119:18. If one was not spoken to by the Holy Spirit in that place, on that night, they were either deaf or not breathing!! I know He spoke to me and I will never forget it.
    Thank you Lord for Pastors like my own and for those like Scott Pauley who never stop preaching the Word! May God bless you all and strengthen you.
    Your friend in Christ,
