day 23: why it takes strength to walk

God is faithful. That's the straight up truth.

If you read yesterday, I confessed an uncertainty as to what I'll be writing about this week in relation to learning to love God with all my strength. And then I went to Bible study this morning where I picked up this week's Home Training Lesson: Walking & Talking with your Child.

I didn't notice the title until I got home, put Ben down for a nap, curled up with my current fave snack - sliced green apples and peanut butter - and began to read the lesson.

After the second paragraph I did a mental face palm because I had only spent the last week studying about Adam's line through Seth and this guy, Enoch, who chose to walk with God for 300 years. Now that takes some strength.

I love how God used a lesson designed to teach children to get me to see what I could not in my adult-Bible-study role. Because I want to be a teachable child.

With my mind filled to the brim on this walking-with-God concept, 'm off to learn what that means step-by-baby-step.

This week I'm learning to love God with all my strength and loving strangers. Want to join me? Please click here for this week's challenges.

Loving God and loving others, it's what I want as well. Bless you in your journey, I hope God opens your heart and teaches you all you want to know.

I spent 25 years writing and working almost exclusively with children. I always learned as much as them. I'll be thinking about the strength it takes me to walk--not 300 years but our promised 70 and 10. Looking forward to reading more.
