Turn exile into pilgrimage

Whatever you do or say,
do it as a representative of the Lord Jesus.
(Colossians 3:17; NLT).


1. Help me turn my exile
Into pilgrimage.

2. Help me turn my selfishness
To care.

3. Help me turn my suffering
To service.

4. Help me turn my whole life
Into prayer.


1. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them (Psalm 126:6; NIV).

2. If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me (Luke 9:23; NLT).

Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you (1 Peter 5:2; NLT).

3. When I am weak, then I am strong (2 Corinthians 12:10; NLT).

Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all (Mark 9:35; NIV).

4. Pray continually (1 Thessalonians 5:17; NIV).

      • Look after yourself, Ruth, and be sure to get medical help should you feel you need it. You can do without flu on top of everything else. xxx

      • That’s so kind, Lesley, and I’ll remember what you said. I don’t think anything can be done at present, really. I’m due for blood tests at the hospital tomorrow, and a infusion in Oncology on Tuesday, but I’m not well enough to travel, plus, I must be very infectious, so really shouldn’t go near anyone else with cancer, either. Will ask John to ring tomorrow, to see if it can all be re-arranged. Take care yourself, won’t you? With love from Ruth XXXX


  • Oh Ruth, I trust it will be sorted in the best way for you. I think, under the circumstances, they’ll arrange your bloods and infusion to be done at home. xxx
