Put one Foot in Front of the other

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking ‘cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door

You never will get where you’re going
If you never get up on your feet
Come on, there’s a good tail wind blowing
A fast walking man is hard to beat

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking ‘cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door

If you want to change your direction
If your time of life is at hand
Well don’t be the rule, be the exception
A good way to start is to stand

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking ‘cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door

If I want to change the reflection
I see in the mirror each morn
(Oh you do!)
You mean that it’s just my election
(Just that!)
To vote for a chance to be reborn

You put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking ‘cross the floor
You put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking ‘cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door

(For those that know this song ADMIT IT you were singing as you were reading the Lyrics)

Yes Yes I know ….. This is a song from Santa Claus is coming to Town…. HOWEVER if you think about it for many this is true for us today.

Lets Break it down some….

“Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking ‘cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door”

In order for us to do anything wee have to have a starting point. IN my Case it is getting ready for a 5k. Who would have thought that I would be really getting ready to do this? I had to start somewhere so what better way than to start slow by “Putting one Foot in front of the other”? Normally my routine was to get off work go eat then go home and do nothing but watch TV. Is that a way for me to get anything Done? By Putting that “One Foot in front of the other” I was soon crossing the Floor and heading out the Door.

“You never will get where you’re going
If you never get up on your feet
Come on, there’s a good tail wind blowing
A fast walking man is hard to beat”

This is true in many parts of our life. We will “Never get to where we are going if we Never get up” on our Feet. That Tail wind is something that is good for all of us. This is true in walking because you do seem to move faster when you have that blowing and your walking. However in life that tailwind is the support system that you have behind you helping and encouraging you to get to where you are going.

“If you want to change your direction
If your time of life is at hand
Well don’t be the rule, be the exception
A good way to start is to stand”

“If you want to change your Direction and if your time of life is at Hand” it is time to get up and start moving to get to where you want to be. The Change in direction also has many definitions in some aspects that all related to the same thing that YOU need to make a change in your Life. This can be a change in your health by finally getting out to lose the weight you have gained, like a lot of us are doing right now, or this Change in Direction can be related to a Spiritual one.

If you are going down a road, and someone asks you to turn, what would he or she be asking you to do?
CHANGE DIRECTION. GO A DIFFERENT WAY. REPENT

Unless you all repent, you will all perish as well. Luke 13:3

I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

If you confess with your mouth, that “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. With the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation. Romans 10:9-10

You do not want to be the rule, or like everyone else that is taking the easy way. You want to “Be the Exception”. “A good way to start is to Stand”.

It is funny that lately I have seen a posting that uses to to Rock Bands to point out a Strong Illustration for Christians. Many have read or heard the following verse

Matt 7:13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

But for those that do not read the Bible the best way to describe this to them would be to use the two classic songs Highway to Hell and Stairway to Heaven. When you think about these songs that are real close to what the verse means, or at least I believe they are close. In this case the “Narrow Gate” is the Stairway and the gate that is Wide and Broad is the Highway.

Normally the Rule for many is to be on the Wide and Broad Gate why not be the Exception and take the Narrow Gate instead?

“If I want to change the reflection
I see in the mirror each morn
(Oh you do!)
You mean that it’s just my election
(Just that!)
To vote for a chance to be reborn”

“If I want to change the reflection I see in the mirror each morn”
If you want to “Change the Reflection” you need to start you will need to make some sort of lifestyle changes. This means getting out and walking and watching how much you are putting in our body as compared to what you are trying to get off your body. It is not an over night thing (did not take one night to get where we are so it will not take one night to get rid of it) it is sort of like you are getting To vote for a chance to be reborn”

Reborn think about it .You are working on creating a new you a new body by losing the weight you have put on but when put when put with a chance to change Direction or to Repent then you are not only working on your Outward appearance through Exercise you are also working on your Spiritual self when you started to look not to yourself to get things done but to look towards God and Heaven…

Heaven is a place where we will live with God forever.

If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come back and receive you to myself so that where I am you may be also. John 14:3

Eternal life begins now with Jesus!

I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance. John 10:10

Talk about something to look forward to. I am working getting a better body in the here and now but I am looking forward to when we will all be in Heaven to live with God forever.

How can a person have God’s forgiveness, eternal life and heaven? By trusting Jesus as personal Savior and Lord. For some this can be hard because we have come to depend on ourselves. Others Just do not care about what happens. All I know is that I am looking forward to that day when I get to be with all my friends and loved ones.

And to think this all started with Just a Song we hear every year at Christmas and all we had to do is start out by

“Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking ‘cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door”
