Just keep walking...

holy experience

I believe that, to an overwhelming degree, the secret to having a victorious walk with God is...just keep walking!  Giving up, quitting, refusing to keep going, is not an option.  Deciding that your circumstance of trial, trouble, or even failure, is as good as it gets, and building a homestead there while refusing to move on, is not God's plan.  Even when you are in a good place, in good circumstances, there is new ground to cover, new adventures in God ahead, so keep walking! The most victorious believers I know are the ones who, when every cell of their being was crying out to just give up, lay down and quit, they put one foot in front of the other and kept walking...and sooner or later, their steps of obedience intersected with God's supernatural intervention and timing and their lives were never the same...and I believe your's won't be either.  Come on, rise up, and WALK!

  1. Do you think He'll mind if I run? I have no doubt He knows my pace :)

    i like your style...keep walking.

  2. Such wise words...just keep walking. That's what I need to remember. I don't always have to know exactly where I'm going--he will lead me, but I need to keep walking.


  3. You make a very convincing argument for ...keep on walking. Life can be difficult at times but with Christ we can persevere and ...keep walking.
