Walk His Way

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and He delighteth in his way.” Psalm 37: 23

I’ve been walking at the “Young at Heart” gym for a couple of months now. Every time I go, without exception, I think about all the miles my Daddy and my stepmother Miss Trudy walked on that same red tile path around the gym. Of course they didn’t start going until they were well into their 80’s. Until then they stayed so busy they didn’t have time to go and walk at a gym! 🙂 My Dad has been in glory for three years now and my stepmother joined him last year. I miss them but their memories always make me smile.

Last week as I walked I thought about how I was walking, literally, in my Daddy’s footsteps. On the very same path he walked so many times. On days he didn’t feel like walking. On days he sometimes had to sit down for a few minutes to rest and get his breath because of his asthma and heart condition. Oh, he was one determined person! When he set out to do something he stayed at it until his goal was accomplished. I would like to be able to walk in those determined footsteps of my Daddy.

So as I was walking last week and thinking about my Daddy, I thought it very fitting when a song about walking with the Lord came on my iPod. It’s called “Walk His Way” (words & music by Patty Hawkins). The chorus goes like this:

It’s your walk with God, that will get you where you’re going
It’s your walk with Him, that will matter day by day
Let every step you take, be a step of faith
Let Him light your path, seek His face….Walk His Way!

My Daddy was a good man. I would love to follow in his steps. But my Heavenly Father is the best Man! It’s Him and His footsteps that I must follow if I am to be a mature Christian. I’m not very graceful so I know there are going to be times when I stumble and fall in my Walk with God. How comforting to know that my Lord is holding my hand and will pick me up and put me on the path again! That’s what He says in Psalm 37: 24 “Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with His hand.”

So today if you’re His child…. Walk His Way! And if you’re not His child, what a better time to be born into the family of God and be carried along in His strong arms?
