Walking It Out

“For we walk by faith, not by sight.”     ‭‭

2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Walking is a pretty mundane activity.
It’s not as glamorous as running.
I’ve always wanted to be a runner but I am definitely not one.  I am simply a very good walker.
Walking is what you learn early by falling down a lot.
It is what gets you to the kitchen in the morning for your first cup of coffee.
It is basic and boring and taken for granted unless you can’t do it anymore.
Charles Spurgeon said,
“That man has not yet learned the true spirit of Christianity who is always saying, ‘I can preach a sermon by faith.’ Yes, sir, but can you make a coat by faith? ‘Can you cook dinner by faith?”.
The real work of life isn’t using your gifts by faith but living your life by it: Paying your bills, doing your job, cooking dinner, cleaning the toilet.
It is in these small necessary everyday things that God’s power is revealed not just in the great things but in the small ordinary ones. 
It is when God’s grace and power are evident in washing the dishes when you are tired and spent.
It is when you stop yourself from going all buck wild on the attitude you just received from your teenager.
It is when the holiday isn’t working out to be what you hoped for but you are able to roll with the punches and still enjoy the special moments that would otherwise be buried in resentment and disappointment.
When what you see does not dictate how you behave.
That is when faith leads your life instead of sight. 
It isn’t very exciting but it is totally life-giving.
Don’t worry about running your faith race today, just focus on walking it out faithfully.
Love you.
Today may you walk slowly, steadily and consistently in faith in who Jesus is, what He has done and in who He is re-creating you to be.

Daily Routine

Make worshiping Jesus a part of your daily routine.

Wash your face.

Brush your teeth.

Worship Jesus.

Since we are receiving a Kingdom that is unshakable, let us be thankful and please God by worshiping him with holy fear and awe.    

Hebrews 12:28 NLT

When you worship, you open your heart to be filled with His unshakable kingdom. A kingdom not of this world that changes the world.
When you worship and see Jesus for who He is, you see the world around you through His eyes.
And you love more, hope more, give more.
Worship fills you with the wonder of heaven and an awe for the one who left it to rescue a lost world.
And when you are full of heaven, it overflows to the earth.
May you be so full of heaven today that it overflows in moments of awe on the mundane moments of your day and make them…heavenly.
You were made for this.

Daily Routine


Make praise a part of your daily routine.

Wash your face.

Brush your teeth.

Praise the Lord.

Praise automatically resets your perspective as you raise your eyes to see God move in the world around you.

Train your heart to see the reasons and the whys.

Train your eyes to see how God loves, provides and guides.

“Good-hearted people, make praise your habit.”

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭64:9-10‬ ‭MSG‬‬

What are you praising the Lord for today?
