Walk this Way

Whenever I think about the phrase walk this way, I think about the song that played with the same title while Scotty Hamilton performed his routine to it while ice skating. Yes, my age is showing. If you haven’t seen it, from years ago, the 90’s,  you should Youtube it.

How do we walk? Your walk is completely your own. You have a stride, a length of step, a cadence. When you know someone well, often you can see just their legs or see them walk from afar, and know it’s them. Yet, we all walk the same way. Two feet on the ground, standing upright, one foot in front of the other, day after day, moment by moment.

How’s your spiritual walk? How are you recognized? Do you know the path you are on? Where are you going? What marks your walk?

Micah 6:8 says He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.

Ephesians 4:1-3 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

This, I write, today, for you, yes you reading this are on my heart. You are called. Do you do yourself justice? Do you give yourself kindness? What about gentleness and patience? Do you bear and give yourself a break when it’s a less than stellar day? Do you partner with that unity of our precious Holy Spirit to let peace become a bond?

It’s a process this life, this walk with our Lord. He says to you well done good and faithful servant. You know Me, he says. I know you better than you know yourself. You are my friends. I am working out all things for your good. I love that you love me! I have loved you before you were even formed. I am love. So are you.

Thank you Lord God for coming along side us in life. This walk is not alone. When we no longer have strength, you carry. When we are excited, we run this race with gusto. As we tire, you support and lift us up. Thank you for your consistency and truth. You are right here.

Walk on.
