Sole Check

What are you walking on this morning?  Flip-flops, scruffy house slippers, sensible lace-ups, or teetering high heels?  Now check out your soles…are they in good shape, or are they wearing down in places?

“If you have one pair of good soles, it’s better than two pairs of good uppers.” – Irish proverb

It’s no use carrying an umbrella if your shoes are leaking.”  – Irish proverb

umbrella feet

Just like our shoe soles, our life’s soul can get worn down too.  Hardships, weariness, illness can all wear us out and make us feel like we have soggy shoes.  When I get like this, and I do, I know I need to take a step back from life, and focus on being thankful, even for the bad stuff, because it means that I’m alive.  That God still wants me here for a purpose of some kind, and that’s  a great thing.  He’s my foundation, my good sole for my shoes.

“Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.  The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.”  -Matthew 7:24-25

May your feet be safely on the Rock today.  Blessings, Lisa
