We Are All Pilgrims

Pilgrim, on your journey at the break of day,
Follow the sun’s rising as heaven lights your way.
Pilgrim, know your pathway deep within your heart,
May you find the wisdom to help you journey far.

Which are you?

A put-one-foot-in-front-of-the-other kind of person just trying to keep the ministry going, getting the next event done, watching your proverbial feet to make sure you don’t step in any potholes or stumble and fall along the way.

A head-held-high-looking-for-the-next-destination type who doesn’t see the flora and fauna you pass because the next goal, the next accomplishment, the next promotion, the next “whatever” is coming around the bend and you don’t want to miss it.

Maybe a little of both?

We are all pilgrims everyday. Not just on those days or weeks when we take time to get away from the daily grind and focus our reflection on the journey.

As much as we are the hands and feet of Christ in our ministry, we must remain pilgrims each and every day. As the refrain of this song says,

May God guide you, may God guide you;
God is your peace, God is your hope, God is your light.
May God guide you, may God guide you;
God is the way, God is the truth, God is the life.

At the beginning of each day, let this be your prayer of pilgrimage as you face the work and ministry that you do.
