When the Walk of Faith

When the walk of faith,
the foundation on which you stand,
is a mile wide and firmly established,
it is natural to look ahead and not down.
The urge to run and the need to laugh just happens.

When the walk of faith,
the foundation on which you stand,
is like an adventure across a swinging bridge,
it is natural to look down and gauge each step.
Your heart races with a bit of adrenalin and fear together.

When the walk of faith,
the foundation on which you stand,
is like a certain death, a trip across a tightrope,
your circumstances are in sharp focus.
Tenuous balance depends upon tedious shifting of weight.

When the walk of faith opens doors wide and new life and new promises reign down upon you, the road ahead appears sure and glorious.  There is so much delight and so much discovery to be had.  Not to express the joy that bubbles from within you is like unto not taking your next breath.

When the walk of faith takes you through darkest valleys, evil you do not fear for Love’s rod and staff comfort you. The path ahead may be tricky and it may be a bit unstable yet your cup runneth over with anointing for your confidence comes from the One Who is Love.  When the crossing of the valley is completed, your joy is complete and victory is all the more sweeter. 

When the walk of faith suspends you against all forces of life and you feel as though you are strung out and as though every step you take could be your last, victory may be obtained but at the end of the journey, you are overcome with sheer exhaustion.

Wherever the walk of faith directs your path, there will be joy and fear.  There will be blessings and there will be challenges.  There may also be the wish to give up and take the path of lesser risk than to continue on toward possible loss and death. 

Wherever the walk of faith has you today, do not turn to look back at yesterday.  Do not second guess divine calling or divine purpose.  Just persevere one step at a time. 

In those moments when the blessings fill you up, run and jump and celebrate that Love is pouring out upon you.  In those moments when fears fill you up, grasp firmly in your hand the pole of Mercy and Love and slide your foot forward if only toe inch by toe inch along the rope of Truth.  Move forward obediently and stand still righteously.  Remain committed to the walk of faith. 

Wherever the walk of faith has you today, do not grow weary and do not lose balance.  Surely Goodness and Love will follow you all the days of your life.  He will lead you beside quiet waters.  He will refresh your soul.
