For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; 

Deuteronomy 8:7

Enjoying the journey is cultivating the joy that has been deposited in your heart by the Holy Spirit. The process of waiting and expecting God to move in a particular area of your life, can be compared to going on a journey where all you see ahead is the boring tarmacked road in front of you. However, there is the option of taking the scenic route and the small country lanes, where you can take in the sights of the countryside, the lush green views of rolling hills and delightful landscapes. Similarly, look for the creative and fun in the mundane everyday stuff of life.

The work of the Holy Spirit which He accomplishes in you includes the fruit of joy. Like any fruit, the seeds are already in you, waiting to be released! You will receive the fruit of joy by focusing, not on your destination, not on what you are expecting but  by taking in the sights on the road, or reflecting on all God has done in the moments that are passing you by. This will warm your heart and release the joy.

Take in all the good on the journey.
