Pause

You are being called to journey, and no journey is easy.

Don’t be afraid for this is one you don’t walk alone.

Take a deep breath and get ready… your journey awaits.

Listen

Lift up your eyes and look all around: they are all gathered; they have come to you. Your sons will come from far away, and your daughters on caregivers’ hips. Then you will see and be radiant; your heart will tremble and open wide, because the sea’s abundance will be turned over to you; the nations’ wealth will come to you. Countless camels will cover your land, young camels from Midian and Ephah. They will all come from Sheba, carrying gold and incense, proclaiming the Lord’s praises.

Isaiah 60:4-6

Think

When I was a young child, I got in trouble from time to time. Each time, as my mom confronted my negative behavior, I would find myself looking at the floor. It’s hard to face moments that are not full of good things.

Every day we find ourselves journeying in a world where more eyes stare downward than look up for hope. All around us are people who only feel the pain of hatred, intolerance, and discouragement. They yearn for light in very dark moments and places.

The starting point for journeying with others toward the light of Jesus is beginning the journey ourselves. In a world of downcast eyes, we must find the strength to lift ours to Jesus' restorative light. What things are keeping you from looking up toward Christ? Where does the journey toward his light and presence in your life begin today?

Pray

God, help me to find the strength to lift my eyes and see your light. Help me to radiate that light to those around me today. Amen.

Go

Christ is calling you to journey with him, to share his light with the world.

Where will today’s journey lead?

Only one way to find out…
