Growing up in Dallas – and especially in college in the 80s – I have certainly learned the Texas 2-Step. Sort of a backward fox trot – if you’ve ever watched Dancing with the Stars. Lol. However, I’m not going to give you dancing instructions here.
These are walking instructions. Yes, I’m serious.
Okay, I can’t resist! I couldn’t even think of writing this blog without including this song. Humor me!
What can I say? Mickey Rooney in “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” was one of my all-time faves as I was growing up. Don’t judge me! 🙂
But in all seriousness, this song isn’t far from truth. A baby learning to walk has to decide (yes, decide) to take the step, and he has to make the move to do it. Whether he falls, or succeeds, he has to repeat the process. Make the decision and then move. Again and again. If you’ve seen a new toddler, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
Your walk with the Lord requires the same two steps:
And just like a new toddler you have to repeat the same steps every day. First answer the question: Will you walk with Him today? Then, act on your answer. It’s not always easy (depending on your schedule), but it is simple.
Your walk with the Lord requires making the decision to take the step, and then taking it. (Tweet This!)
