I’m planning an October Appalachian Trail hike. (I don’t want to hear any jokes about that South Carolina governor. He gave all of us A.T. hikers a bad name!)
Jesus was a walker. . .
You ask me why I’m a walker
Up and down these country roads
It’s not real easy to explain
So I’ll give an example to you.
You see, Jesus was a walker.
That’s the only way He knew to go.
He walked on dusty roads and traveled in the hills.
He hiked through the mountains,
Where the view is nice and real.
Jesus knew a secret
That I’ll now share with you:
When you’re out walking in nature,
You can feel God speaking to you.
As you walk where it’s quiet and peaceful,
The world’s troubles will soon disappear
And you will feel God’s peace
As He draws you near.
Yes, Jesus was a walker.
He even walked out on the sea.
And as I walk through these woods
I feel Him walking with me. . .
