Borrowed Blessing that I'm saying for you



"May God keep your heart set on pilgrimage.  May He keep your eyes upon the destination and never let you forget that your Goal is a person, Jesus Christ, and He is waiting for you - in person - at your finish line.  May you always remember what a great cloud of witnesses cheers you on in your journey to Mount Zion and bids you to "Be Brave!"  The race is not long, Beloved, so run hard!  May your eyes be open to snares your enemy sets in your path and should you tumble in the muddy ditch, may your troubled heart be disallowed to condemn you.  Jump in the air, twirl around buck with repentance before your God until not a single speck of mud is left on your feet. Let God wash them in the water of His Word and place them back on your path.  When you feel heavy-laden in your journeys, may you check first to see if it's the burden of a swollen ego or the load of taking on a role that only belongs to God.  May you lay down what has no place in your packs and crawl on your hands and knees, sowing the Word of God and watering it with your tears.  May you never forget that you are inconceivably loved and that God will prove infinitely faithful.  And, on your way to the great feast in the heavenly Jerusalem, may you glace often to your right and to your left and offer a fellow pilgrim a helping hand.  May the Lord, Maker of heaven and earth, bless you."
