I Stepped Out of the Boat This Morning
My pastor is a traditional preacher and last Sunday her sermon was entitled “Step out of the Boat” This is a biblical reference to Christ telling Peter to step out of the boat and walk on the water. I would characterize this as a lesson about faith.
So after my 95 year old mother slapped me the gauntlet so to speak and asked why I drove into the park instead of walking in, I decided to step out of the boat and try it. I could tell you all the reasons in my head for not walking the additional 3/4 of a mile to where I normally walk but the bottom line is that I was afraid that I couldn’t do it. Well today I proved myself wrong. Actually I walk further most days than I did today but I walk on a relatively flat oval which is a little over a half mile in distance and I cover a bit over 3 miles. Today I walked into the park and down one side of the track that the locals call the red carpet. I covered 2.82 miles which included some inclines that were very challenging for me. What a sense of accomplishment I felt when I arrived back at my house. Maybe you can try it soon. Step out of the Boat!
