See You At The Pole on the way to Jerusalem: Psalm 84:5

Day 9/30

"Happy are those who are strong in the LORD, who set their minds on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem." - Psalm 84:5(NIV)

"Setting your mind on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem" is a metaphor for "making a decision to follow the path of God."  This makes a person happy and strong with a strength that is not your own.  How do I tap into that strength?  How do I live in this kind of happiness?  What do I have to do to "set my mind on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem?"

Prayer.  Spending time with God, talking with God, listening to God, brings His presence and His power right in the middle of my life, no matter the situation. 

Earlier this morning, I was truly blessed to be able to share a few minutes of praise & worship and prayer, led by high school students, at Cutter Morning Star school.  My son, Christian, and I joined with a bunch of other Jesus-followers and seekers for the See You At The Pole rally.  As these young members of the Next Gen led us in prayer for our country and for their school, I found myself praying for this Next Gen, that they would set their minds on following the path of God that leads to the joy and strength of His Kingdom.
