Alive And In Step
Galatians 5:25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. (NIV)
Walking is good for me.
It’s good for my body and my soul.
A clear mind,
ears that hear the smallest bird that sings,
legs that strengthen as I increase the distance.
The wild turkeys hide from me.
They comb the populated neighborhood
through which I walk,
yet quickly hide
from my approaching footsteps.
The little bird
who’s voice is heard from the tallest tree,
cannot be seen among the leaves,
and yet his song is clear.
His song belies his size.
My mind is active
as I walk and ponder unsolved problems.
Bits of conversation and snippets of once learned lyrics
skip through my thoughts.
I feel alive and in step with the Spirit.
Prayer: Lord, let me walk with you every day.
