Every so often when I need re-energizing, I take a long, brisk walk. For I know that walking provides many benefits to my physical as well as my mental health. Benefits that include: improving my cardiovascular health, burning calories, boosting my energy and improving my mood.
Oftentimes, when my faith needs re-energizing, I like to take another long walk. A walk down the hall of faith found in Hebrews, Chapter eleven.
For on this walk I am spiritually refreshed when I look around and see the many people who lived a life of great faith. I see Noah who built an ark by faith when it had never rained a day in his life. I see Abraham who believed, by faith, that God would produce a nation through him if he left his homeland and moved to another land. I see Sarai who believed by faith that she would have a child, even though she was old and barren.
I Timothy 4:8 states that "Physical exercise has some value but spiritual exercise is much more important, for it promises a reward in both this life and the next." So go ahead and utilize the benefits of taking a good, brisk walk for your physical health. And when you need a boost of energy to re-energize your spiritual health, take a brisk walk down the hall of faith.
Prayer: Father, when I need to be spiritually re-energized, thank you for the benefits I receive when I take a walk down the hall of faith. Amen.
