My Shoes – Your Shoes
Hello there, I hope that every one of you are doing fine this day or whatever time it is that you choose to read this post, may you be richly blessed in his name alone, AMEN.
For today’s post I want to discuss the importance of wearing and being thankful for our own shoes that God has given us in our life. Are you appreciative of the shoes that you have been chosen to wear? If not please do think on this for brief moment if you will, see if you’ve noticed my purpose isn’t to judge, condemn, or outright TELL anyone what to do, all I can do is present you the truths and hopefully you might pay attention and accept it for what it is and if you don’t then I have no ability or authority to make you do or believe anything else.
I have been given shoes to wear that have wore my feet out at times, they’ve left me blistered and sore and in terrible pain, they have given me comfort too, when I least expect they show me how much they really do help me, because someone that doesn’t have any shoes at all is put into my path by God and I am shown that there are others out there who have it a little bit worse then myself. Who knows, perhaps you’re reading this and you have a worst story than I do.
But do we really want to look at our life as a ‘bad story’ or do we want to look at the alternative which would be to view every event that we’ve endured as a great ‘testimony’ for Christ, do you truly believe that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose? Tell me if you really believe that today because I am absolutely certain that you would have to say ‘YES, YES AMEN!’
Then Think About This:
What if you would of had to endure something much worse than what you are facing at this very moment or what you have faced before? Try to put yourself in someone else’s position and see if you are able to walk a minute in their shoes, much-less a day or even a mile, could we really do it? Could we really survive in someone else’s trials and pain? Perhaps some of us could depending on what we have gone through, but say that those struggles were worse than anything that we have ever even imagined or endured, maybe we could make it through but we would come out thanking God for the shoes that he has given us don’t you think?
The other day when I was out I realized something very important, something that I needed to be reminded of because from time to time we can forget these things, with the pain from what my mother has done with taking that man back and forsaking all of us leaving a gaping wide hurting hole inside of us. I have to say that from time to time I get a little upset about it, (which is why I’m prone to getting a bit to emotional during family/Christian/Drama’s) but I was reminded that I am not the only person that is going or has gone through this type of hurt in my life and when I see something else going on in someone else’s life even if I don’t understand it I can feel their pain.
I may not be able to feel all of it, but I can feel some of it, especially when it is caused from the same type of situation that I have experienced, and I see the things I’ve went through and I know that I am blessed, I may wish things would have been a bit different from time to time or I may just wonder what things could have been like.
But I am always grateful for the shoes that God has given me, and when I see someone else hurting from any type of pain, or similar pain then it really hits home for me and I get nudges from God at times to go and speak to people to let them know that I’ll be praying for them or whatever I feel that God tells me to say, because I know myself what it is like.
Let’s all be grateful today my friends, you wear your shoes and I will wear my shoes and together we can clean each other’s shoes of all the mud, the grime and trauma that they might have went through during their time of hardships in this dark wicked world however let us know one thing that is the most important of all. God is always in control and whatever it is that is going on right now in our life, in my life and your’s you have got to remember that everything honestly happens for a REASON and a PURPOSE, a GOOD reason and a GOOD purpose.
I really do hope that today’s blog post has given you some type of insight on life in some way and until next time don’t forget that God loves you, he’s watching out for you, he’s got your back you belong to him and if you keep fighting the good fight of faith you will do alright.
