You are discouraged and weary, says the writer of Hebrews. You are carrying the burden of whole worlds, new worlds, new ways of being. You are traveling on a road that seems to stretch out to a horizon that never gets closer, a road that sometimes feels closed in and dark.
But you are not alone. Take heart. In that darkness you are actually surrounded by countless others who have traveled that same pilgrimage. Even as you feel yourself only able to crawl on hands and knees, their stories will carry you forward.
- When was a time that you were carrying the burden of whole worlds?
- How have the stories of others helped carry you forward?
