A Walk With God

March 29, 2019



Today’s verse:  Jeremiah 6:16  (NRSV)

“Thus says the Lord:
Stand at the crossroads, and look,
    and ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way lies; and walk in it,
    and find rest for your souls.”


How do you spend time with God? Is it in bed before you get up in the morning? Is it a slow walk in nature? Attending church on Sunday? One of my favorite ways to spend time with God is walking a labyrinth.


For me the labyrinth is a walking prayer. It is a time for me to slow myself down and focus on the moment.  It is a very special time of meditation and reflection.  It is a way for me to open myself up to the Divine, a time to feel the Spirit.


There are endless ways in which one can experience a labyrinth. Basically you pause for centering and prayer before you enter the labyrinth.  Then you start walking, following the path and finding a pace that is comfortable until you get to the center. Then you walk back out. There is no right or wrong way to walk a labyrinth the path is winding and you can pause or stop along the way.


I love watching my feet as they follow the path and just letting go of everything that is weighing me down.  When I get to the center, I like to pause and surrender everything that I am carrying in a prayer.  As I walk back out I invite God to fill me with his desires for me. I go slow and I take long slow breaths. I imagine the Spirit filling me and flowing through my body as I breathe in and I mentally let go of my negativity as I breathe out.


When I finish my walk with God, I feel centered, refreshed and refocused. I usually like to just sit and spend some time with all of my thoughts and emotions.  It is good.


On April 5th 2019 there will be a Labyrinth set up at First Presbyterian Church of Wheaton, from 1-8pm.


Everyone is welcome. I invite you to join God and I for a little walk.
