A Pilgrim’s Problem – a faded signpost

Faded Signpost

The pilgrim worried that sometimes he would not have much time to care for his love-relationship with God. Then the Lord spoke to him and answered his unspoken question:

Do you have only one minute? Hem it with quietness. Do not spend it in thinking how little time you have. I can give you much in one minute.” Diuma (a 7th century missionary)

 The pilgrim sat by the water and his dear Lord said to him:
“As the ripples of the river glance up to the light,
let your heart glance up to Me in little looks of love
very often through the day.”
 Amy Carmichael (19-20th century missionary to India)

Taking time – even minutes here and there – to maintain a love-relationship with God has always been a problem for pilgrims but will always be essential for  progress.
