How Pilgrimage Can Help You Discern God’s Will

Some people undertake a pilgrimage to discern God’s will in their lives. Here are a few ways such a journey can help you discover God’s plan for you.

A pilgrimage is a spiritual journey that symbolizes the traveler’s search for God. When you embark on a pilgrimage, you are not merely interested in seeing the sights and trying new foods. You seek something more profound – perhaps a renewal of your faith, a deepening of your prayer life, or a miracle for a sick loved one.

Some people undertake a pilgrimage to discern God’s will in their lives, such as what vocation they should choose. Here are a few ways such a journey can help you discover God’s plan for you.

Pilgrimages are times of prayer and meditation.

A pilgrimage is different from a vacation, although both are meant to refresh and renew you. You can pray on vacation, but the main focus is your list of fun activities. With a pilgrimage, prayer and meditation are priorities. You spend more time with the Lord, pondering where He’s leading you.

Pilgrimages encourage you to look at the big picture of your life.

Each of us is living our own personal story. But the hustle and bustle of daily life can make it hard for you to decipher the main narrative of your life. Many of us go from work to errands to family obligations and back to work. A pilgrimage relieves you from these daily concerns so you can focus on the most important thing in your story — your relationship with God.

Your vocation is like a pilgrimage.

God created each of us with a body and a soul. He gave us the physical world to help us understand spiritual things that are not perceptible to the senses. A pilgrimage helps us understand our spiritual calling by taking us on a journey of sights, smells, and sounds that call our attention to God and help us visualize our spiritual journey in a concrete way.

Make a major stride in discerning God’s will by joining Verso on an unforgettable pilgrimage. Start planning now.
