After a break in the weather, I was able to get out on the beach for a long walk. I didn’t find any shells worthy of keeping, but the air was refreshing, there is nothing that cleanses my soul more than the gulf breezes. I took Rudy with me and it was his first time walking the entire two miles. He’s been with me before, but I’ve had to carry him for at least half of the walk. It’s probably been more than a year since the last time I took him so he’s matured considerably since then. When we go the distance with Jesus, it takes time for us to mature. There are times when we get tired and He carries us and other times we follow Him closely. It’s not always an easy walk; we encounter many things that try to keep us from going the distance, but if we stick with Him, He will refresh our soul like the gulf breezes. Do not grow weary, let His strength carry you down the treacherous path you are on, then walk when you are able.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
