Walking With God

Little B all bundled up for his first walk! 

As a new mom, my schedule looks drastically different.  Post-baby, I no longer have an hour to myself each morning where I can slowly sip coffee, peruse blogs, journal, pray, read, and blog.

Now, it’s more like downing a cup of coffee just to keep my eyes open, perusing blogs during baby feedings, and sadly the journaling and reading has become few and far between.

My days are now shared with someone else and it’s such a fabulous thing, but it is certainly an adjustment.

So what’s a girl to do?  Similar to crock potting, I’m learning new ways to multitask and weave everything together.

Today, on the Changing Seasons blog, my mom wrote a fabulous post on Noah and how Noah was a man who walked with God.

In my family, the girls love to walk.  When we’re together, we throw on our “tennys” and hit the neighborhood loop, walking and talking about anything and everything.  Walking is a great way to exercise your body and your mouth–it’s a win, win!

Now, in my new stage of life, like Noah, I’m working on becoming a woman who walks with God.

Though my time might look different, I’m still a woman with a lot on my mind, and I have PLENTY to God about, just not the cozy, quiet mornings to do it like I used to.  So, I’ve started to walk with God.

It keeps the baby happy and entertained, it gets me out of the house and moving, and it keeps the lines of communication open between me and God.  

I thank Him and praise Him for His endless blessings–beautiful days, a healthy baby, His faithful promises.  I talk to Him and work through what’s on my mind–unknowns, friends who are hurting, future plans.  I ask for wisdom and guidance in this new season of life.

I still try to have concentrated quiet time with God throughout the week, but on the days when that’s just not possible, walking with God helps keep me connected to Him.

If you’re looking to get out of the house and enjoy this beautiful spring weather, but just haven’t found the perfect walking buddy, why not try taking a walk with God?  It might feel awkward at first, but once you get going, you’ll see that it’s a great way to exercise your body and your soul.

Pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.
Psalm 62:8
