We had been brainstorming a blog name for a couple of weeks. We were trying to find something that really encompassed our journey to this point, but also one that we could ‘live with’ for years to come. We talked about how God had led us to this point already. We talked about how we haven’t always known what the next step would be, but we continued to seek, listen, and trust that if we were faithful where we were, God would continue to reveal the next step to us when the timing was right. (I was reminded by a friend that ‘God may be slow in revealing, but God is never late!’) We also talked about how much joy we get out of serving the world’s ‘least of these’ as an act of love for God.
Having not come up with a solid name, I went away to a renewal weekend. We were watching a short video clip. The speaker in the video said, “as pilgrims, we pray with our feet.” I had one of those “is-the-preacher-only-talking-to-me moments.” I thought “That’s it!!! That is our blog name.” I kept saying, “praying with our feet” over and over until I got to my room, just in case I might forget it. But, I think that really says it, and shares our journey. Yes, it is a journey, of taking one step at a time. But, I also see that the very act of following and living out God’s love is a prayer to God – it is communion and communication with our maker. I pray that each of us will truly pray with our feet each day, as we seek to follow.
