Walking with God

I thought of the title of this post while I was out walking this morning. We use this expression to express a different type of walking..it might be described as staying close to the heart of God..following Him..choosing His plans instead of our own. All of this is very important, but so is walking outside in nature with God. For me, it is a necessity.. I literally cannot keep going emotionally unless I get out and walk.

We live in a beautiful place so I am blessed to be able to walk out my front door.. right into nature. The reason I crave this time is because nature represents something stable and unchanging to me. The birds always sing..the grass always turns green after the rain..the creek always flows. In winter the trees always lose their leaves and their silhouettes are breathtaking. As spring approaches, daffodils poke up through the ground and the tips of the tree branches turn green. The flowers are in full bloom during the summer months and the birds seem to sing even louder. Then we have the beautiful fall show..the leaves turning color and drifting slowly to the ground. Wow!

Our Creator is working overtime in this world giving us glimpses of His artistic genius. It keeps me connected to walk outside and view His handiwork..it encourages me that He is never too busy to place beautiful clouds in the sky and to remember incredible sunsets. I just can’ t get enough of it! I truly hope you find the time to step outside and take in  creation in all its glory..it will bring peace to your soul and rest to your spirit.

  1. Thanks Wendy.. I took these pictures in our beautiful valley. We are so blessed to be able to see His creation by just glancing out the window. I love taking the pictures so I can look back anytime I want to!

  2. A timely reminder of the beauty of God’s creation. I too love walks in the countryside and being in the heart of a natural environment and like you love to take pictures of sunsets and cloud and skyscapes. What are sunsets if they are not God’s own watercolours?!

  3. Yes..He uses His creativity to encourage and bless us.. I really count on that every morning when I get up and look out at the green hill behind our home. It is all there as a way of reminding us that in His kingdom all is well 🙂
