Cinderella is proof that a pair of shoes can change your life...



HAPPY MOMENT from yesterday....finding these shoes for 60% off!  YES!!  God is so good!  Been looking for a pair of shoes this VERY color, but never willing to pay full price. :) I absolutely love how so many times when I pray about a purchase, God gives me an opportunity to get it for a much cheaper price.  Sometimes it takes patience to wait and not buy it right away...but that is also how I know it is His will! Thank you, Jesus for little things that make us smile, like high heel shoes! :)



 Yes, I'm 5'9"....and yes, I'm still proud of wearing heels! ;)


"Cinderella is proof that a pair of shoes can change your life."  I think this not only applies in the physical realm where the perfect shoes can totally make an outfit, but in the spiritual realm as well.  Your life changes as you make "your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the Gospel of Peace." (Ephesians 6:15)


"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!"~Isaiah 52:7


"And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" ~Romans 10:15

Today I was reminded again how desperately I need to put each piece of the armor of God on as I begin every new day.  The Belt of TRUTH, Breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS, having feet shod with the GOSPEL OF PEACE, the Shield of FAITH, Helmet of SALVATION and the Sword of the Spirit!  No soldier goes into battle dressed in jeans and a sweatshirt....why should we?  The battle is real! Our enemy, Satan is real....let's dress for Victory, because it's already ours in Christ Jesus!!
Dear Heavenly Father, prepare our feet to WALK in YOUR ways, bring good news and to always be "fitted with the readiness that comes from the Gospel of Peace."



Love,

  2. Awww...yeah I remember that, Blake. :) I know! He really does! I've been wanting a pair of shoes just like this for months...but was never going to spend the money. And Kohl's NEVER has my size on the clearance rack...but this time they did! And in the exact color and style I wanted. I love Jesus and how He cares even about our shoes! :)
