What Does Your Walk Say About You?

What does your walk say about you? Does it say that you’re on your way to greatness? Does it say that you’re swift and you avoid danger? Does it say that you have no destination, and you’re just along for the ride?

Make your walk SPEAK!

People should be able to look at your walk of life and know EXACTLY whose you are and where you’re going. (Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in order to prove by you what is that good and pleasing and perfect will of God. ) If it doesn’t, then there is a problem. Your life should be an effortless ministry designed to inspire/motivate/empower others. People should be able to look at you and see GOD! Donnie McKlurkin said it best: “We fall down, but we get back up” What’s most important is what you do when you get back up. What message are you sending? Do you walk when you get up? Do you thank God when you get up? Do you surrender to the ways of this world when you get up?

Walk in the direction of purpose. Walk with those that are going where you are going. (There’s a popular quote: “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with”. So wisely pick your inner circle. Not all people deserve the beauty of you) Walk with a smile on your face. Walk regardless of what people say about you. (John 15:19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.)

Ask yourself “what does my walk say about me?”, and make decisions accordingly. It is important to walk, but what’s MOST important is WHO you walk with. Walk with HIM, for he is the source of your strength. Life was never promised to be easy, so just hold on tight to the word of GOD.

Continue Dreaming,
