Train Journey

“At birth, we boarded the train and met our parents. We believed that they would always travel on our side; however, at some station our parents stepped down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone.  As time goes by, other people boarded our train and they are significant such as our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life.
Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum.  Others will go so unnoticed that we do not realize that they vacated their seats.  This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos,  goodbyes, and farewells.
Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is: we do not know at which station we ourselves will step down.  So, we must live in the best way: love, forgive, and offer the best of whom we are.  It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave, we should leave behind beautiful memoires for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.

I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life.  Reap success and give lots of love.  More importantly, thank OUR CREATOR for the journey.  Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train.”     Author Unknown

I do not know who wrote this article concerning the train of life, but I found it very meaningful.  Since you are reading this, then you are still on the train involved in life’s journey.  We have some work to do.  You know this is not a free ride to nowhere.  We are going some where.  The destination is up to each one of us.
Jesus said, “If any man would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross and follow me, For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will find it.  What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul?  Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?”    Matthew 16:24-26
The Apostle Paul knew the struggle and the goal for he said, “Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus”    Philippians 3:13-14

Keep on keeping on for Christ.  You are on the train ride of your life.
