Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path.

Be still and know that I am God…Psalm 46:11
We’ve entered those last weeks of the year that are so full of faith, family, fun, stress, activity and we may feel the need to buckle up and hang on. But maybe the Lord is asking us to look at things a little differently.
What if we all decided to take a big deep breath and remind ourselves that the next couple of weeks will be filled with things we love and things we don’t. What if we decided to invite God into all of it very intentionally. Being surrounded by family is a beautiful thing but getting the house set and ready for their arrival isn’t so beautiful so why not offer the getting ready prayerfully asking for His blessing on the conversation, laughter and memories that will take place. What if we remembered that nothing bad lasts forever and the same can be said for the good stuff. Life is a series of yeahs and yucks and God is found in both so lets not be in such a hurry to get through life.
As we make our way through the next crazy days, lets consider one simple suggestion…Be Where Your Feet Are! Life blazes by so meet God in the moments…he’s there in all of them. If we’re not where our feet are, we’re dwelling int he past or zipping off into the future missing what God is doing right here and right now. We won’t always be comfortable, things aren’t always the way we plan…that’s ok because pain and frustration are places God does so much teaching, forming and leading.
A Seed to Plant: Every time your tempted to “wish away” a day waiting for one that’s better, ask the Father to help you be where your feet are and feel him working,
Blessings on your day!
