Born to Wander
Born to Wander: Recovering the Value of Our Pilgrim Identity | Michelle Van Loon
Why are we so restless? All of us have a little wanderlusta desire for that next thing, that new place, but this competes with our longings for security, control, and safety. We dont like how it feels to be unsettled and uprooted. Whether were navigating a season of transition, dealing with the fallout of broken relationships, or wrestling with a deep sense of restlessness, we are all experiencing some form of exile. And most of us do whatever we can to numb the feelings of unbelonging, powerlessness, and unsettledness that come with it. But the truth is that exile has a profound purpose if we can just learn to lean in. Over and over again Scripture tells us that the people of God are exiles and wanderers. And this is good news because exile is what transforms us into pilgrims. In Christ, we are no longer directionless wanderers, but pilgrim followers who have a clear purpose and a secure identity. In Born to Wander, Michelle Van Loon weaves together personal stories and keen insights on the biblical themes of pilgrimage and exile. She will help you embrace your own pilgrim identity and reorient your heart toward the God who leads you home. Engaging and thoughtful, enhanced with practical suggestions, prayers, and questions, Born to Wander will teach how to trust God even when you dont understand whats happening around you and follow Him even when it hurts. If you keep chasing security, youll never find it. Embrace the purpose behind the wandering and discover the freedom and safety of resting in God alone. Every one of us carries a restlessness that runs as deep as the marrow of our born-again bones. Our relationships shift like tectonic plates. We change jobs. We switch churches. And our culture tells us the cure for our restlessness is to buy a new mattress, a new car, or a new tube of toothpaste.
