Overcoming Shoes for your Feet

"God, pick up the pieces; put me back together again!"
Jeremiah 17:14

What if?!

They are the most distressing words in the English language. What if I have another bad mammogram? What if my chemo doesn't get it all? What if my cancer comes back after my chemo is over? As I contemplated all the events that had made up my particular pink path, I realized that all of my anticipated calamities either had never occurred, or, by God's grace, He had given me the proper shoes to walk through them.

Every new obstacle on this course presents the same option to us. We can choose to take the road alone, and face the fears and challenges on our own. Or we can choose the God-road, which follows the One Who is not only Companion, but Comforter, Counselor and Conqueror, too. If we decide to walk the path illuminated by the Light of the world, the most capable and experienced Guide, then He will give us the shoes we need for the journey.

I've picked you. I haven't dropped you.
Don't panic. I'm with you.
There's no need to fear for I'm your God.
That's right. Because I, your God,
have a firm grip on you and I'm not letting go.
I'm telling you 'Don't panic.
I'm right here to help you
.'"
Isaiah 41:9, 10, 13

The next time Satan tries to "spook" you with his slanderous "What if," answer him back with your own adage — "So what!" Because whatever happens, God will be there to give you the shoes you need or to carry you on your steepest climbs!

I'm still in your presence,
but you've taken my hand.
You wisely and tenderly lead me,
and then you bless me.
You're all I want in heaven!
You're all I want on earth!
When my skin sags and my bones get brittle,
God is rock-firm and faithful
.
Psalm 73: 23-26
