It’s often easy to spot those who have had hip replacement surgery. They develop a peculiar walking gait. My husband determined not to ‘waddle’ after his surgery and asked me to correct him every time he waddled.
This went well for a short time. After the third correction of the day, he rebelled.
“Well, I can stop reminding you if you like,” I offered.
“No.” he countered. “I want to walk straight. I am just tired of trying right now.”
Needless to say, Ron worked on his steps repeatedly till he unconsciously walked wobble-free. This reminded me of our walk with God. He too prefers the straight walk.
Ye shall observe to do therefore as the Lord your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. Ye shall walk in all the ways which the Lordyour God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess. (Deuteronomy 5:32-33, KJV)
Oh it takes practice and lots of help from the Holy Spirit, but eventually we too can be wobble- less.
Prayer: Father God, forgive our wobbles. Help us practice rightness till we right. In Christ. Amen.
