A Daily Musing: Creating a Map for the Journey
Begin thinking (and possibly creating) a map for these coming days. Begin by drawing the following:
· a place for where you are starting out,
· your notion of where God is,
· your emotional / spiritual terrain,
· your landmarks and mile markers along the way,
· places for rest,
· places for refreshment,
(you get the idea)
Will it be in color or in black and white? Narrative or images? Bodies of water? Actual places from your history? Or only those you’ve imagined?
Breath Prayer: “Guide me” “show me the way”
Prayer: Companioning One, as we begin these Lenten days we look to you. May we have strength enough, courage enough, resources enough to follow you on this path. As you have led our ancestors, lead us now. Hear us, we humbly pray. Amen.
