“do not ask God to guide your footsteps if you’re not willing to move your feet” ~ Jewel Diamond Taylor.
Gosh that struck a chord with me. Am I willing to move my feet? Am I willing to listen, really listen? I struggle with that at times, perhaps because I want HIM to listen to me and give me MY way. Of course, His way is better. From the outside looking in, it may seem that His way is harder, and more treacherous. BIT it actually isn’t. It isn’t as hard, because His way is filled with grace.
I know from working with my students that they learn the best when their minds are open; when they don’t assume that what I am teaching them will not make sense. It is the same with me and God. If I basically strap on my running shoes and eagerly say, “OK Lord, let’s do this thing” ~ I can run (literally and figuratively) with renewed strength.
I pray today that I will be willing to move my feet as quickly and steadily as God guides me. I would love to hear how God is guiding your feet these days.
