This Friday’s focused walk is to think of ways to move forward. For example, if you take a walk in your neighborhood at certain times of the year, the sidewalk can be an obstacle course preventing you from walking. Crowds of people standing around, a break in the concrete, a puddle, or maybe even an overgrown bush may be in your way.
My mother will sometimes carry shears with her to trim some of the errant bushes that can completely block the walking path. (I sometimes wonder if I will have to bail my mom out of jail for her unsolicited pruning). But she is determined to walk so that she will prune.
What happens when something stops you?
Our car GPS systems say “Recalibrate” when we veer off our driving directions. I have nightmares about the GPS saying recalibrate, recalibrate, and recalibrate.
What do you do to recalibrate on your walks? How does God remove the blockades for us as we walk?
On your walks this week, be mindful of the roadblocks and remember…
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
