To set out on a journey with nothing – no luggage, no snacks, no cash
or credit cards, just your faith in the One you follow – sets a high
standard for discipleship. The days when I felt comfortable traveling
without a cellphone are long behind me. But the road Jesus encourages
us to follow won’t be made by the things we cling to for comfort or
security. We must be willing to take risks, to step forward despite
anxiety and fear.

You call us, Jesus, but we hesitate to follow. Fill our hearts with
the faith necessary to step forward with you. Fill our hearts with
courage, knowing that despite what we must leave behind, your
promise of what lies ahead is worth the journey. Amen.
