Walking with God

One of my favorite things to do is go on walks.  There’s something about the fresh air and all of the nature surrounding me that it immediately brings me comfort.  It is also a way to de-stress and get out of my head!  I found out when I was away in New Zealand, living with a team of amazing people, sometimes I just really needed to get away.  So I would go for walks.  In that time I would be able to breathe, relax and see that whatever thoughts were swirling up there were just thoughts and I could carry on.  Now that I’m back in California, I’ve continued this “tradition” and it’s been such a help for me!  The key to these walks is talking to God.  The Bible says God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in our time of trouble (Psalm 46:1).  Psalm 55:22 tells us to cast our cares on the Lord and He will sustain us.  This sounds so simple, yet for me it hasn’t always been.  I find myself getting into battles in my head, going through possible scenarios, stressing out about situations, and not enjoying the present because I’m caught up in thoughts.  I remember awhile back this song “Come to Me” by Bethel Music/ Jenn Johnson came out, and I loved it, I would just listen to it because I loved the singer’s voice so much.  But then I started to really listen to the words to the song and applying it.

Come to Me, I’m all you need
Come to Me, I’m your everything
I am your anchor, in the wind and the waves
I am your steadfast, so don’t be afraid
Though your heart and flesh may fail you, I’m your faithful strength
I am with you wherever you go
Come to Me, I’m all you need

It’s so amazing what God does when you go to Him, tell Him what’s on your mind, and listen to His voice.  Instead of wondering what will happen, you see all of the amazing things He created.  How the beautiful wildflowers stand steady, even on windy days.  Instead of hearing your troubles and worries, you hear His steady voice encouraging you to keep going.  So, the next time your head starts spinning I encourage you to take a step outside and talk to God.  Take a look around you and see, He is all you need.

Love,
Laura
