I started walking in the mornings a few years back. Actually, about 5 years ago.
Before that, I ran, when I ran that is. I love to run. But, being overweight (yes, I know, eat more salad!) and having a bad back makes running hard.
And, as my back got worse, I moved from running to walking.
Let me be as crazy honest and transparent as I can with you about this
…I primarily walk in the mornings because I’m a
…balls to the walls, always going, never stopping and when I do I crash kind of person.
I’m not saying that’s the best position to be in life, but, here’s what I know about myself:
I’m not the steadiest person to be around. One day I’m crazy up…top of the world. The next day…I’m down.
I love change.
I love new ideas.
I love a million things going on.
I love re-thinking things and changing them.
I love saying YES!
I love a full calendar.
I love being busy.
The problem with all that is….I can’t keep it all going. The only person I know that can is..Chris from Park & Recreation! Hah!
But, I just can’t.
So, I walk.
I talk to Jesus.
I listen to sermons.
I listen to music.
I enjoy sunrises.
I listen for the quiet whisper of the Spirit.
I ask God for help…favor…leadership…His heart & eyes.
I thank God.
I worship Him.
Because my life is pretty quick, I walk so I can slow down.
Because my life is sometimes all over, I walk to keep it straight.
Because my head is filled with conversations all time, I walk to listen to the One who created me.
