i read these verses this morning: blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage. as they pass through the valley of baca, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. they go from strength to strength, till each appears before GOD in zion.
it tells me that i am on a journey. a pilgrimage. to the holy temple where christ is dwelling. GOD purposes there to be points of rest where i gather up enough strength for the next haul. pools that were once dry will be fill when i get there. the pools will never be dry when i get there. the strength to carry on [insert rich mullins song here] is made available to me until i appear before GOD in zion.
