Walk, Don’t Run

Fire drills we all know. No, I’m not going to discuss fire drills today. But in today’s life we all live as if we are having an emergence all around us. We forget the basic rule they taught us in school: to walk, and not run, for you might fall…

I started working again. As soon as I started working again, the demand to do my pyrography also changed. We plunged into the art market scene, taking away my time to do my craft.

I could feel my hand slipping out of God’s comforting hand. My prayers changed from praising, to pleading. We all know these times in our lives. The ‘too much, too soon’ times. I found myself tired, and feeling overwhelmed.

After speaking to my husband, we decided to let the market scene go, for now. I can now fully concentrate on my art.

It reminded me of the first piece I wrote to this blog site, called ‘Walking with God When Medicines Fail.’ God taught me how to walk with Him. The bible teaches us that God want us to slow down in life, otherwise we will miss the important things in life.

We read in Galatians 5:16 (KJV), “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

And “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:1, KJV).

The only time we find God running is in the parable of the prodigal son when the son realized his mistake and decided to return home and beg his father’s forgiveness. But instead of condemnation, Jesus said, “And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him” (Luke 15:20, KJV).

My prayer is that we will return to our Lord Jesus Christ. Hold on to His hand and He will guide us in our walk with Him. He does promise never to leave, nor forsake us, and His Word never lies. #GodCanDoThis
