“So let’s come near God with pure hearts and a confidence that comes from having faith. Let’s keep our hearts pure, our consciences free from evil, and our bodies washed with clean water.” – Hebrews 10:22 CEV

In May, just before our graduation from seminary, a classmate released a book titled Power Walk*. As a fellow author, I immediately purchased the devotional journal and began my “40-day journey to power”. Since I graduated on May 13, 2017, my journey to power should be complete but somewhere along  the way I stopped walking. I’m not sure why and I am not sure when, but I stopped walking.

Although I stopped power walking toward what God has for me, the power of God that dwells inside of me was still operating. Even as I resisted, God used unexpected people and situations to draw me closer to him. On today, the eve of the bi-annual Dance the Word conference which is themed “Draw Near”, I realize that with each ministry in motion movement God has been stirring up the gifts inside of me. As I listen to the lyrics of each and every song, I have resumed my journey to power as I minister with power in the dance.

As I peek over to the devotion for day twenty-four in Power Walk, I see the header: ME:Okay God, what do you want me tell your people today? GOD: Stop walking away from me.

So in obedience to God, I charge everyone who is reading this message right now:

“Stop walking away from God and Draw Near!”
