Trying to live a safe and easy life used to focus me on myself. It was like walking barefoot outside. Each step you take is focused on where your feet are going to land being careful not to step on the wrong thing. As you look down you just might miss that rock that will cause pain and spare your feet. The problem is you will not even know that you missed the beautiful sunset above, or the bird in mid flight or a flower that is open and fragrant. Walking barefoot spiritually will also cause you to miss some precious things, God planned things in this life. Over thinking each step and not taking risk for a pebble here and there can keep your eyes off focus. You will miss the person you could have loved and trusted, the one you could have encouraged along the way or the one you were supposed to tell about Jesus. I stopped choosing this kind of life in 2008 and even though it’s been hurtful and rocky at times I have chosen to free fall into trusting GOD even to the point I can say HEY! God what’s happening here and tell him everything! HE can take it after all. I so love that I have a Father who watches me enjoy this life he gave me tears and all. He’s there when my heart sings and there when my feet fall. I can’t wait to see what is next. I will continue to walk and say “really Lord? that looks awful risky but I trust you” I can’t wait to see what he has in store! Acts 20:24, Isaiah 43:18-19, Rev 3:8, Rev 12:11, Eph 3:20, Isaiah 61:3. God has it all covered. Always has and always will. Nothing is beyond the control of God and his power. No matter what happens I can rest in the fact that my Father loves me and wants the best for me. There’s too much to learn in the present for good and for God so dear children….. GET out there and taste what GOD has planned and receive it! This little lamb is going to with all her heart! My prayer is simple… Here I am Lord send me.
Never Once did we ever walk alone << — Listen and enjoy 🙂
