“In my distress I called to the Lord, and he answered me.”
—Psalm 120:1 ESV


These words describe the essence of every true pilgrimage: a journey from a place of distress to the place of the presence of God.

Today we embark on a journey.

I don’t know what your current situation is. Maybe you’re in a place of pain, like the Psalmist who wrote this song, or maybe you’re not.

But I’m guessing that you joined this journey because you realized that you need to be closer to God.

I know that I do.

So let’s set out on this pilgrimage together, confident in this truth:

When we call to the Lord, he will answer us.

Here is a simple prayer to carry with you today:

Inhale: I’m calling, God.
Exhale: Answer me.
