This habit of bringing our faith with us on our trips not only made us feel safer physically and spiritually but also brought us closer together as a family. It helped us see God’s presence in the beautiful places we visited, in the different cultures we experienced, and in the unexpected moments that happened during our travels.

Most importantly, it reminded us that no matter how far away we are from home, God is always looking out for us, guiding us with His love and wisdom.

Traveling with the Holy Spirit by your side.

Being open to new things and cultures when you travel is important. Sometimes, you might feel unsure or insecure in unfamilir places or situations. That’s where leaning on the Holy Spirit comes in. It helps you feel peace and gives you discernment when you need it. The Bible says in John 14:26, “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” This verse reminds us that, even when you’re away from home, you are not alone.

The Holy Spirit is like a friend, guiding you through new places and helping you spiritually. Acts 1:8 also talks about the Holy Spirit giving you power to share your experiences and beliefs, no matter where you are.

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” -Acts 1:8

Seeing our family trips as a chance to spread joy and kindness. As we visited different places in Hawaii and Mexico, we realized something important. We weren’t just tourists; we were like messengers, sharing God’s peace wherever we went. This way of thinking changed how I  saw our travels.

As we explored new places, we felt connected to the world as God’s creation. Visiting Hawaii without being in awe by the incredible beauty made by God is impossible! Our trips were more than just vacations; they were journeys of faith, and family  togetherness.

Finding Peace During Uncertainty When Traveling

When you go to a new place, you can feel both excited and worried. 

You are excited for the adventure but also nervous about the unknown., especially when you are leaving the comfort of home and your country. But your faith will help you feel better. It reminds you to trust in God’s guidance instead of just relying on your own understanding. This trust will bring peace, even when you feel unsure.

When I’m feeling uncertain, I remember that God is always with me, even in unfamiliar places and situations. His words in the Bible comfort me, reminding me that He protects and strengthens my family, no matter where we are. 

Seeing God’s Kingdom Through Nature

Our recent trips showed us something amazing. We got to see how God’s kingdom… His creation is so incredibly beautiful. I mean, we already knew that, but to come face to face with some of these places was breath taking! Everywhere we looked, we felt God’s workmanship and presence.

Watching the sun rise and set over the horizon on the far side of the sea reminded us of how much God loves us, how great and magnificent He is!  These moments, away from our usual places, really touched our hearts. They reminded us that God’s glory is all around us, and we all should appreciate it more in our daily lives. In the everyday, in our comings and goings and in the mundane. 

Praying For Safe Travel

From the momment we start planing a trip to the minute we return, prayer keeps us under God’s protection. It kind of reminds me of when the children of Israel wondered in the desert for forty years before reaching the promised land and the angel of the Lord showed them the right paths to take. By day they followed the pillar of cloud and by night the pillar of fire. They were always under His watchful eye, and so are you! So remember that when you go on your next trip! Don’t give in to travel anxiety, instead, hold on to your faith and His steadfast love for you and your family.

Before we leave for a trip, we gather together and ask our Heavenly Father for safety and protection. We pray to see the beauty of God’s creation in every new place we visit. And for our interactions with the people we meet. Praying before we travel has become as important as packing our bags. It gives us a reminder for each trip that we are always under the watchful eyes of the Lord.

Memorise These Psalms For When You Have Travel Anxiety

Travel Bible Verses -Psalm 23 (NKJV)

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters.

He restores my soul;

He leads me in the path of righteousness for His name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil;

For you are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;

You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;

And I will dwell in the house of the lord forever.

Travel Bible Verses -Psalm 91 (NKJV)

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him I will trust.

”Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler 

And from the perilous pestilence.

He shall cover you with His feathers,

And under His wings you shall take refuge; 

His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,

Nor of the arrow that flies by day,

Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,

Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side, 

And ten thousand at your right hand;

But it shall not come near you. 

Only with your eyes shall you look,

And see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,

Even the Most High, your dwelling place,

No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;

For He shall give His angels charge over you,

To keep you in all your ways.

In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.

You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,

The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;

I will set him on high, because he has known My name.

He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;

I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.

With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation.”

Using The Word Of God As Prayers

Praying with Bible verses is like talking to God using His own words from the Bible. It’s a way to ask for His help and blessings by using the promises and truths written in Scripture.
