Walk in the Spirit

Living moment by moment, trusting in the Spirit to lead and guide us.

Notice the verb WALK.  Paul isn’t telling us to run, to jog, to drive, to fly, to skip… nope, we are told to WALK.  Funny thing, most of us don’t want to get anywhere by walking anymore.  We want to get from Point A to Point B in the shortest, the quickest way possible.  That’s our culture’s way of life.  When we travel, when we run our errands, when we drive to work, when we go about our everyday things in life… we want to do whatever it is the shortest and quickest way possible.

I started thinking really deeply about the use of the word WALK.   In the original Greek, the word walk meant “to make one’s way, progress”  Over the last few years, I’ve truly come to appreciate the verb walk, the noun walk through the time I spend walking with on walks with my sweet man!  He has been teaching me how much of Life passes us by when we don’t walk.  Especially when we don’t Walk in the Spirit.  On this moment by moment, hour by hour, day by day journey I am on, I am now beginning to understand the true JOY in walking in the Spirit.  Walking may be the slowest way of going on this journey, but walking means progress.

The more I walk, the more I listen, the clearer the voice becomes.

I am a follower of Jesus on the journey of discovering His real, lasting joy through God's grace and thanksgiving. Several years ago, I married my best friend, whom I met in kindergarten many years ago. Life choices took each of us on separate paths, but Divine Appointment brought our paths back together. It's exciting to share this journey with my sweet man - a man who loves God more than he loves me! What a gift!! As a young woman I prayed for God to send a godly man like my daddy to pursue me. I just wasn't listening and abiding when I should have been. Good news in HIS time and in HIS grace, HE did! Not only does my sweet man love me, but he loves my three grown kids as if they were his own. He shares their joys and he hurts when they hurt. I love to hear him pray for each of them daily as we begin and end our days. View all posts by beegee10
