A Walk in the Park

Published May 30, 2014 by birdieklh

Yesterday I began walking. True, I was in a hospital when I did, but it was a new beginning for me. I walked several times, around the floor, going completely around all the ‘stations’ and back again. Not much to look at, but the strength I found was amazing.

Today, thinking I would be going home early, my husband joined me. We found out I had to wait a bit longer due to some issues with my potassium levels not being right. Anyway, he joined me on my walk. We paused at the lovely wild life photos that were hanging round the floor, as well as gazed out several windows trying to calculate where exactly we were looking – LOL, you think we could figure that one out easily!

Now, praise God, I am home, and looking forward in the coming weeks to actually take our walks out to the park – the beginning of a new and healthy lifestyle.

However, did you know that every day, figuratively speaking, can be a ‘walk in the park’ no matter where you are? No matter what you are facing?

It is true.

If we look at our lives from a spiritual perspective, live our lives on a spiritual plane as much as possible – the Lord walks with us, never ever leaves us, is our ever present help in times of need. He takes our burdens, our yoke upon Himself, and gives us His . . . peace, life, joy, provision, protection. How can it not be an easy walk, a pleasant stroll in the ever fragrant garden of His love?!

One of my MorMor’s (Grandmother) favorite Hymns, and therefore one of my own is “In The Garden” it goes like this:

I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses.
Refrain

And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.

He speaks, and the sound of His voice,
Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
And the melody that He gave to me
Within my heart is ringing.

Refrain

I’d stay in the garden with Him
Though the night around me be falling,
But He bids me go; through the voice of woe
His voice to me is calling.

Refrain

I love His peace! I love His presence! I love EVERYTHING about my Lord!

Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
