Sometimes I get caught up in thinking about all the feet that have come before. For example, the Gap of Dunloe has seen millions of visitors passing through the 11km pass(6.8 miles)for years upon years. That’s a lot of feet, human and horse. So many people enthralled with God’s beauty that holds you so closely that you can almost feel His breath.

God has protected countless numbers of feet for so many years. I am so grateful that my two feet are included in His care. Blessings on your day, Lisa “For You have delivered…my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.” ~Psalm 56:13
This is an abandoned home or inn nestled into the Gap of Dunloe in Ireland. It was grand in size, and must have been a fine place in its heyday. I love places like this; not sure why, but ruins always interest me more than perfectly preserved houses. I don’t know who lived here; I wish I did, but someone remembers them and tells fine stories about good times spent within these walls. Slainte, Lisa
P.S. Moral of the story? None of us are perfect; all of us have “crumbly bits.” But “do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.” (2 Corinthians 4:16) Hope indeed. 🙂
When you’re hiking, you can get lost pretty quickly if you don’t stay on the trail. Things start looking the same and you can get turned around and disoriented. In dancing or figure skating, experts say to keep your eyes fixed on one focal point, so that you won’t get dizzy during spins; it keeps you grounded. In my life, if I take my eyes off God, I can get dizzy and lost and disoriented really quickly. And then I always wonder what happened….how did I get so discouraged? It usually takes me a few days to realize what I did…I lost sight of my focal point, my constant.
“Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track.” – Proverbs 3:5-6 (The Message)
I pray that I can keep focused on His voice, and I pray the same for you today. Blessings, Lisa
