Let me recommend something I believe will be uplifting and inspiring for you… Take a walk! Now I know some of you are “health walkers” – “you get out and motor!” as they say – you “push it” with arms working and legs churning… That’s not what I’m talking about (that’s good and it keeps you fit – I’m a runner, so I understand). I probably should have said, “Take a stroll!” Slow down, take out the ear buds, listen to the birds, look at the budding flowers, see the trees beginning to green, hear the breeze and enjoy the gurgle of a nearby brook if there is one close by.
Here is what prompted this bit of advice… My Bible reading this morning was from Job 37, where Elihu gave this bit of good advice to Job (and it should be noted, not all of his advice was good 😉 … but this was)… He said, “Stop and consider the wondrous works of God!” (And it’s hard to do that in a hurry!)
In fact, I underlined this summary of his words in my Bible today… it’s good!
“God thunders wondrously with His voice! He does great things that we cannot comprehend… Whether for correction, or for his land, or for love he causes it to happen! … Hear this, O Job; stop and consider the wondrous works of God! Do you know…the wondrous works of Him who is perfect in knowledge? … God is clothed with awesome majesty! (Taken from the words of Elihu to Job in Job 37)
So my advice today? Take a walk… No, better than that – a stroll… look, listen, and “consider the wondrous works of God!” It will be energizing to you physically, emotionally, mentally, AND MOST OF ALL, SPIRITUALLY!
