that I need.
In my travels and in my life journey,
Both in physical & spiritual realms,
I need an anchor.
As a human being I am a fellow sojourner
on this earth with the rest.
As a follower of Jesus,
I am a soul-journeyer, too.
Both aspects of this journeying
make me hunger for the Anchor.
This sojourning pilgrimage conjures up many pictures:
Mountains, valleys, meadows, rivers.
Fellow pilgrims, supporting characters, experiences.
There is danger, there is suffering.
There is joy and there is victory.
There are lessons. There is growth.
There is a calling deep within us all
To make a journey.
My life has been full of travels,
Of moves, of changes, of transitions
This has made me more aware of my need to shore up.
May all my travel-journeys,
Moves, changes & transitions
Be catalysts toward a soul-awakening need
For that deep anchoring
“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm & secure.”
