“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”” Isaiah 52:7
When I was growing up, there were seldom shoes on my feet. I just loved going barefoot!
During the summer months when my brothers and I were out of school, we never wore shoes. I cannot tell you how many rusty nails and grass burrs (stickers) we stepped on during that time. Oh, my! Those were some painful experiences, physically speaking! However, I was never deterred from repeating my country girl habits. To this day, I still go barefoot in the house and am very thankful there are no rusty nails or grass burrs to dodge!
This morning I was thinking about our feet from a spiritual angle. Do we have compassionate, kind, tender hearted, loving feet that carry us places where we are able to serve the Lord? How are we to put our feet into action during these unprecedented times? There are lots of things that could possibly hinder us—our modern day rusty nails and stickers. However, it comes as no surprise that God always has a plan and is ready to make a way for us to serve Him passionately as His Spirit directs.
If we are willing, He is able. May He use each of us to tell the old, old story in some way today—for His glory alone.
I love to tell the story, twill be my theme in glory
To tell the old, old story, of Jesus and His love 🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶
