Living for Jesus

Nearly 35 years ago, I made a commitment to walking daily, and have done a pretty good job at keeping that commitment. I love walking with friends, by myself, or with my dog, Callie Marie.  Callie is 12 years old and is a walking machine!  She’s smart, too.  Sometimes, I think she knows I am going on a walk even before I do!

I enjoy listening to praise music or podcast preaching while I’m walking, and when I’m by myself, I spend a lot of time talking to God.  Many times, during my walk, He inspires me with the next thing He wants me to write about.  I prefer walking outdoors, but I’m not picky.  In the winter months, I walk in the mall when it’s too cold.  I rarely turn down a walk when a friend calls.  Just like Callie Marie, I’m always up for a walk.

The Lord, convicts me daily that I am to be as diligent and disciplined in my spiritual walk as I am in my physical walk. He reminds me I am to walk ~

  • By faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7)
  • In integrity (Proverbs 10:9)
  • In His statutes (Leviticus 26:3)
  • In the Spirit (Galatians 5:25)
  • Wisely (Ephesians 5:15)
  • Humbly (Micah 6:8)
  • In the Light (John 12:35)
  • According to His commandments (2 John 1:6)
  • In a way that pleases God (1 Thess. 4:1)
  • In truth (Psalms 86:11)
  • In the same manner, as Jesus walked (1 John 2:6)
  • In good works (Ephesians 2:10)
  • In love (Ephesians 5:2)
  • In a manner worthy of my calling (1 Thess. 2:12)

Walking in truth, integrity, faith, etc., means  “living” for Jesus, which isn’t hard to do, if you enjoy pleasing Him, and I do. 😊
