A Walk of the Heart


Jeremiah 29:13
And you will seek Me and find Me, 
When you search for Me with all your heart.


I wrote in my journal one morning declaring each day a brand new day to walk with the Lord. Then, as I paused to consider and examine what those words truly meant, I realized that much of that walking is walked out in my thoughts and prayers as I seek Him. This walking can be accomplished without taking one single step. Walking with the Lord is a walk that takes place in the heart—a heart to follow Him.



I went on to write in my journal that “Today, walking with Him required me not to worry about something troubling that happened, but to pray and trust. Today, walking with Him has shown me through the reading of His Word that I am not helpless, but I am an overcomer and more than a conqueror.”


Walking with the Lord has also taught me to never give up when visible answers to prayer are slow in coming. Walking with Him has shown me this week not to focus on the natural things of this world and circumstances surrounding me, but to keep my eyes on God and what only God can do.  



My journey with the Lord is a walk to seek Him, and this is a walk of the heart I choose to take each brand new day.
