A walking Meditation

Day 182, 07/09/2010, A walking Meditation, Genesis 24:62-67

Meanwhile, Isaac, whose home was in the Negev, had returned from Beer-lahai-roi. One evening as he was walking and meditating in the fields, he looked up and saw the camels coming. When Rebekah looked up and saw Isaac, she quickly dismounted from her camel. "Who is that man walking through the fields to meet us?" she asked the servant. And he replied, "It is my master." So Rebekah covered her face with her veil. Then the servant told Isaac everything he had done. And Isaac brought Rebekah into his mother Sarah's tent, and she became his wife. He loved her deeply, and she was a special comfort to him after the death of his mother. NLT

I love getting out in nature and prayer walking with God. It is a refreshing thing, to be in the land unhindered by development and crowds of people. It seems easier to focus and meditate on God.
Today I encourage you to find a place where you can be away even in some small way from the crush of society and alone with God in nature. Maybe it is a tree in your favorite part of your yard, a nearby park or an open space but set aside some time there for you and God and meditate on Him not just His creation. You never know how He will work in those times. Be sure to take the Word with you so that you can respond according to it as He ministers to you.
