The Pilgrim’s Progress
From this world to that which is to come.
John Bunyan

***

Faith is not the clinging to a shrine,
but an endless pilgrimage of the heart.
Audacious longing,
burning songs,
daring thoughts,
an impulse overwhelming the heart,
usurping the mind —
these are all a drive towards serving Him
who rings our hearts like a bell.

 Abraham Joshua Heschel

***

All roads lead to Bethlehem,
all must someday follow them
And be ye great or be ye small
May the good Lord bless you all
on the road to Bethlehem

***

Keep me walking steadfastly towards the country of everlasting delights, that paradise-land which is my true inheritance.
Support me by the strength of heaven that I may never turn back,
or desire false pleasures that will disappear into nothing.
As I pursue my heavenly journey by Your grace
let me be known as a person with no aim but that of a burning desire for You ,
and the good and salvation of my fellow people.

from Valley of Vision

This Week’s Special
Make me to know Your ways,
O LORD; teach me Your paths.

Psalm 25:4
