From Shaky to Sure footed...

Over the last few days, there have been so many opportunities for God to speak to my heart. Recently, my sweet E (and KG for that matter) put his feet into the ocean for the first time. He has always had some struggle with things that move, or appear to move, beneath his feet. The ocean completely freaked him out at first. I could tell that he couldn't understand what was happening... was He moving? was it moving? are we all moving? Needless to say... he did NOT like it at first. He lost all confidence and became frozen in fear. .... well... see for yourself...





New experiences can be really scary. The unknown, lack of understanding, etc can engulf you and leave you frozen in fear. What I love... is that it didn't take long for E to adjust... and then check it out...




Here's some verses God placed in my mind, and how it could be very similar to me in a few days...


"The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights." Habakkuk 3:19

"For the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared." Proverbs 3:26

"Teach me to do your will, for you are my God may your good Spirit lead me on level ground." Ps 143:10

"But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him." Jeremiah 17:7

"You will go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands." Isaiah 55:12


easy does it... remember who's placing my feet... and soon the confidence, peace, and joy will come and I will be "jumping the waves" with joy in Zambia.
