A Walker’s Creed

God came walking through the garden in the cool of the day and spoke to his first listeners. I will walk, because he first walked, and I will listen for his voice.

Enoch walked faithfully with God, until God whisked him away. I will walk away from death and into the whirlwind of God, wherever it carries me.

Noah walked faithfully with God and built a very big boat. If God asks me to build something never been built before, I will do it, even if it seems too big.

Abram walked the length and breadth of the land of promise found a home there. I will walk in the direction of my heavenly home.

Pharaoh’s daughter walked along the riverbank and fished out a special child in a basket. I will be alert for hidden gifts as I walk.

The blessed one does not walk with the wicked, even through a valley of shadows. I will steer clear of evil companions.

If I walk blamelessly, the Lord will be my shield. I will seek to be blameless.

Isaiah saw that those walking in darkness would see a great light. I will walk in the light God gives each day.

Isaiah saw a highway of holiness. I will keep my feet on this narrow road and walk upon it until I die.

Those who wait upon the Lord walk and never faint. Woven together with him, I will keep going and not quit, trusting always in his goodness.

There was a fourth man walking through the fire with the Hebrew exiles. Even if I must walk through fire, I will not be afraid.

Jesus walked by the sea and found disciples. I will be one of those willing to leave all to follow him.

Jesus walked upon the sea. I will go to him when he bids me to walk upon the water.

Two disciples encountered the risen Lord as they walked the road. I will walk with him too, as he teaches me about himself from the Scriptures.

The Lord says to stand at the crossroads, ask for the ancient path and the good way. I will ask for the wisdom of this ancient way and walk in it.

The Lord has shown me, a mortal, what is good. I will act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with my God.

Christ loved me and gave himself for me as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. I will walk in the way of love, as he is love. I will walk in the light, as he is the light.
