#7 Lent Pilgrimage, Surrounded

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people. ~Psalm 125:1-2

Bible readers may be familiar with Mount Zion. Perhaps we imagine that Jerusalem perches on a mountaintop called Zion, while it might be more accurate to say that Jerusalem sits in a bowl of mountains, nestled on top of an ancient spring. I use my pilgrim eyes to see the pillowing mountains that surround Jerusalem, just as the Psalmist describes. I want to believe that the Lord surrounds me, and my life, the way the mountains surround Jerusalem.

How has the Lord surrounded and protected your life?

Prayer: O Creator, El Shaddai, surround me.
