Montivagant

Hill and dale

I learned a new word today. Well, new to me. It’s probably been around for a long time. Montivagant. It means “wandering over mountains and hills.”

I’ve often spent seasons of my life as a montivagant seeker  –sometimes up and sometimes down.

This life is full of mountains and valleys. Followers of Jesus Christ know he often leads us through unexpected downs on the way to brilliant ups. The beauty of this journey is not just the prize at the end. It’s realizing Who walks with us.

God is good, all the time, no matter what.

Hard times may well be the plight of the righteous—
    they may often seem overwhelmed—
    but the Eternal rescues the righteous from what oppresses them.

(Psalm 34:19)
