Pilgrimage

Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. (‭Psalm‬ ‭84‬:‭5‬ NIV)

A pilgrimage is defined as a journey to a sacred place.

Is there a better description of the life of a disciple of Christ?

When you are pursuing a thriving relationship with God, you are not just on a pilgrimage, you are living one.

Every place you invite God into becomes a sacred place.

Your home.

Your job.

Your relationships.

The pilgrimage for a Christian is not to go somewhere that God has been but to allow God to be with you where you are right now.

In your weakness.

In your frail humanity.

Into the reality of your life.

He comes in and gives you what you do not deserve but cannot live without: love, forgiveness, strength, peace, joy, hope and eventually eternity.

Are you just living life or are you living in a divine pilgrimage?
