“Holy Ground” is where your feet land!

Like others through the centuries, I have been a pilgrim, as I have traveled in the Middle East. Pilgrims are those who make the effort go to a place they consider holy. Yet these same people may find it difficult to look around their usual place and see it as holy as well.

God knows that my heart is especially with the people of the Middle East. It is a gift of the Holy Spirit that this love of people and place is in me. I must caution my human spirit to not stray into wishful thinking. Rather, if I stay awake – attentive – to this seed of care within me I will be available to witness to those in my own place to the needs of others in distant places.

Where my feet land is holy to God. It is where God knows to find me. I do like to invite God to consider this place or that one for my feet to land but where they are today is where I need to be.

Where do you feet land? Are your able to see it as holy? It is where God knows to find you!
