Strong Paths and Strong Shoes

I wrote this 7 years ago but it applies today as well.

"If God sends us on strong paths, we are provided strong shoes." ~ Corrie ten Boom

Discouragement.  

Anxiety over the future.  

Anger over circumstances.  

 Defeat. 

So many times lately I have given in to these emotions. Our future seems so uncertain at times and it's hard to see the forest because of the trees.   However, we believe that God has a plan for us.  We have seen God work in wonderful ways over the past few years. 

We trust Him and know He is has His best for us.  However those same emotions take hold at times. 

Discouragement.

Anxiety over the future.

Anger over circumstances.

Defeat. 

Yet, even in the midst of these swirling emotions, I know that God gives us what we can handle. If we are walking in His way and keeping our eyes on Him, He will provide a way.

There are many valleys and shadows in our lives. There are times when things seem bleak and overgrown with weeds.

When things seem overwhelming and defeat seems near, He always seems to give us moments of light and joy. An oasis in the middle of chaos.

So today I am choosing..


Encouragement. 

To have faith.

To listen to His voice. 

And to know that I can have the victory.

For I know that when He calls me to walk in strong paths, He will give me strong shoes!
