Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem. – Luke 9:51
He’s on the road
PUT waiting for me
today we begin
a forty day walk
I lace up my shoes
PUT from a safe distance
but it’s bound to happen
His eyes will catch mine
and I must summon the courage
PUTnot to look away
for in His loving gaze
and we will
carry them all
PUT to Jerusalem
Questions for your Lenten pilgrimage:
- Where have you seen Jesus on the road?
- What are you carrying?
