Get Up and Walk

I got up early this morning, so I could spend time with the Lord before heading off to do photo sessions all day long =) Amazed at how He speaks to me. I truly feel that God is calling me to do something. Not going to post the details here. Not now. But I just want to say that when He speaks, He doesn't forget. He keeps reminding me every day about what He wants me to do. Even though we go about our daily lives. Running here, running there. Acting sometimes as if we didn't hear Him. He's still there. Ballgames, wrestling camps, pool days, yard work,vacations~the wonderful days of summer. My favorite time of the year. We get so busy sometimes, but He's still there~guiding each and every step we take. I know He's there. I stand in awe of the things that have been put in front of me the past few weeks. I read a number of devotions, and am doing a Bible Study....Do you think it is coincidence that they all are about the same thing? Hmmmmm....I think not. I heard someone say at a women's conference "There is no such thing as coincidences, only Divine appointments".... So TRUE!

The Bible Study I am reading focused on the story where the man was healed at the pool of Bethesda. I have read and heard this story so many times. But this time it was different. The man was sitting by the pool and waiting. What was supposed to happen, was when the water was stirred, the first person to get to the water, would be healed. Well, this man was unable to walk. So he sat by the pool, waiting...Everyone would get to the water before him. He said he needed someone to help him get to the water. But then Jesus came to Him. Jesus asked him "Do you want to be healed?" The man answered, "Of course I want to be healed"...Jesus told him to "Get up and Walk". The man got up and was healed. Another amazing story in the Bible.  The story has much more to it than that, but that is a summary. I read this and started thinking....Do I want to be healed? Do I want to be in His Will? Do I want to do EVERYTHING He wants me to do? Then, I need to get up off my mat, and walk. Stop sitting on the edge of life. Stop waiting. and Go. =) That's what's in my heart today. Say a prayer for me~wanting to "Get Up and Walk" today.....
God Bless.
