"What?! You, too?!" I exclaimed.
As you see in the picture, it's a small orange icon on the top of our blogs editing page. Once we have chosen our topic, title, pictures, done our research, written the blog and chosen the special music...then one thing remains! Either late Sunday night or very early on Monday morning, we have to click that button! PUBLISH LIVE! Once it is clicked, there is no turning back. It is posted for the whole internet world to see! We both share in this silly fear of pressing that one little button! I don't believe it is a fear of writing to you because our hearts are of a pure motive to offer you insight into the deep things of God, His word and His lavish love and delight for you! So I asked myself, what is this fear all about?
Wow! Although I've never heard God's voice audibly, it was just as if His hands shook me awake and then spoke to me while standing by my bedside. As I turned over in bed, those words resonated until I was sound asleep. Those words in the night have visited me daily, coming to my mind at every turn. And so, I'm trying to live them out; watching how I walk and taking notice of people... watching me!
One of the sessions, (interesting that it's topic was about Hands and Feet, but more interesting that that session was mine to teach and... also it's my week for the blog!) was about our "walk!" Isn't that just like God to line up everything in perfect sequence and perfect planning!
Since the overall title of our blog is "Monday Musings," take this little nugget and ponder a little bit about our feet!
Feet: The Foot - carries the whole of the weight – likewise; be the foot, carry one another’s burden - Be careful not to
carry too much weight. Scripture says to lay aside every weight...Hebrews 12:1
The Toes – provide balance – we must have a life of balance before we properly be the feet of Jesus James 1:8
The Arch – like a bridge, it provides strength. Are we strong in our beliefs? Are we strong enough to help
support others? 1 Corinthians 10:13
The Sole – it’s the foundation with which to stand firm. (Ephesians 6:10) It determines your posture! What is
the condition of your “sole?” Is it soft – am I tender-hearted? Is it firm and calloused, able to walk
through anything or so calloused that nothing calls attention to it. Do I even care?
- Big Toe – Walk in the Spirit – It’s the most important thing to do. For it you are walking in the Spirit, you need not worry about many things. Gal. 5: 16-25
- Walk NOT in the council of the ungodly – Ps.1
- Walk in wisdom – Col.4:5
- Walk the same way Jesus walked - I Jn. 2:6
- Walk NOT alone – Ecc. 4:9
15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, 20 giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 21 submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ. (Ephesians 5:15-21, ESV)
Warning: People will take even more notice of you because you are not walking in the way of the world. They will begin to ask you questions so be ready to give an account of the hope that lives within you.
15But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asks you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:16Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. 17For it is better, if the will of God be so, that you suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. 18For Christ also has once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit 1 Peter 3:15
9 Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Ecc. 4: 9-12
