Taking Life As a Journey

Life is truly a fleeting journey, a temporary sojourn. God is teaching me not to speed through it.

Too many times, we are stuck waiting. Instead of savoring the season of life we are in and finding the gems in our lives every day, we simply wait. It’s not until this or that happens that we feel we can start living. This is not true; every single moment of our lives is an absolute gift. Not a single moment of life is wasted or should be rushed through.


Lately God has had an interesting way to show me not to speed through life, or on the road. It’s stunning how many times I’ve found myself in front of a police car, reaching a four-way intersection at the same time as a police car, or seeing the sheriff sneakily parked on the side of the highway without lights at night. I’m convinced that God isn’t only trying to remind not to speed in the car. Waiting has been a huge theme in my life the past few years. God is trying to teach me to enjoy the scenery and whatever is right in front of me, not so determined on reaching my destination quickly.

Praise God for these lessons, however the Lord manages to impart them to us! I’m loving each beautiful moment and step on this path He’s laid out for me, though I sometimes don’t understand the routes He’s plotted out. His ways are better than my ways, that’s for sure! I’m sitting back and enjoying the scenery and precious moments that otherwise I would speed through.



Welcome to Sunflower Sojourn!


My name is Lianna, and I am a Catholic young woman in my mid-twenties.

The aim of this blog is to encourage you as you journey to become the person you were created to be. This life is an incredible sojourn, and it's one we make with God and others on the same path. It is not easy; my hope is that this blog will bring you joy and strength. I will post to inspire you on your daily journey, and topics of posts might be: faith, financial, relationships, health, or any other topics that might be helpful to you.

May the Lord bless you abundantly as you seek Him and the great plan He has in store for you!

Together journeying toward the Creator and becoming the creations we were meant to be.
