When we do, we are free.”

Why don’t you get on the sidewalk instead of running beside it? - Mary Nelson, Reclaim Yourself and More

I love my treadmill.  I have had one model or another for at least twenty years and wouldn’t want to be without it.  I get on and think good thoughts or listen to a book or music.  It is a time I look forward to each day and find it.

Many, many years ago, I had a different type of “treadmill” come into my life.  I fervently wanted to grow in my personal and spiritual life.  I struggled with how to make it happen and wondered why it didn’t.  Then out of nowhere, a picture and some words crossed in front of my mind.

The picture was of a moving sidewalk, a curving cement path lined with grass and random bushes.  It was moving towards an open field, but I couldn’t see where it was going.  At the same time I saw the sidewalk, I saw the words “Why don’t you get on the sidewalk instead of running beside it?”

What a novel idea!  I had been running towards the goal of growth and was working hard to make it happen.  In a moment of grace, I was shown that I could simply get on the moving sidewalk and let it effortlessly take me there.

More often than not, we work at something that God would so easily do for us.
