Good afternoon everyone...and how is your day? I didn't really know if I would be on here right now...but God did...so here I am.
This morning...after doing a few things online, I went into my kitchen, to relax and do a little cooking...but before I left the office, I asked God to lay out the footsteps for me to walk in...because before I took some time off, I was finding myself caught up in schedules and the demands of the day; that I was actually beginning to feel stressed out quite a bit.
Anyways...I've been thinking on what it is really like to walk in the footsteps of Jesus. Yes...we follow Him as Christians; but I was also reminded that following Christ's footsteps each day, means that we stop creating our own footsteps, through our own desires and plans. In other words...we let God lay out the steps before us....and we just follow. For example, one step may mean that we will do one thing, while another footstep may walk us into something completely different...maybe something that we hadn't planned to do at that moment. The idea behind it all; is to let God walk us through life...for He only knows what will work...at what time. In this way, we will be more at peace with ourselves and with Him.
Today, as I began my day...I stopped listening to myself...and I stopped placing the demands on myself; that were placed upon me in the past...and I opened up my thoughts to God. Before I knew it...I was feeling His leading, as one step this morning began to lead me into another. By time the morning was finished...I truly felt at peace, with no stress. What a great way to remain in sync with God! Try it...and come to experience a peace like no other!
Have a great day...and God bless!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
