Beautiful Feet

Image“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 NIV Bible

Beautiful feet, I can honesty say I have never looked at mine and declared that.
You see in the flesh, they are wide and my toes are a tad on the stubby side; and when placed along side friends for a photo after my first pedicure they quite resemble Fred Flintstone’s feet AKA twinkle toes. Perfectly capable of pounding the dusty road with Barney Rubble after they lifted their prehistoric vehicle on route to Mr. Slate’s rock quarry.
But God’s word is talking about feet that travel to share good news. Dusty, grimy feet that ran to declare captivity is over, that freedom is on its way.

Those formally offensive and disgraceful feet become messengers of hope, peace, and the promise of a new beginning. That is my hope and prayer for you today, that somehow these soiled-chubby feet will aid in declaring God’s good news to you, proclaiming His peace in every one of your challenging situations.Your heart swelling with joy at the good tidings God has for you. His love touching every hurt, fear, and heartbreak. “Your God reigns”, and that truth deserves a hallelujah and If I might a yabba-dabba doo!

Hello my name is Lisa,it would be so delightful to sit down with you swapping life's stories..Reveling in God's goodness,sharing our battles won and those we still are fighting. Finding sacred ground together in heartbreak, redemption , forgiven and blessed hope that promises not to disappoint us. A little about me ... I love God with all my heart stumbling along the way as I do , I talk a lot but still covet listening, Laughter and being creative are not options for my soul would wither with the lack of them. My husband Kevin and I have been married for 35 years and blessed with two grown sons, a lovely daughter in love and two precious grandchildren .While this earthen vessel laden cracked and flawed by God's intentional grace and renewed strength made it through some hardships. God's redemption shining through past misfortunes that included surviving sexual abuse, a failed first marriage, eating disorder, panic attacks, gripping fear and crushing low self esteem. Drawn to a God that can right wrongs, bring beauty where ashes once laid ,all the while lovingly speaking His worth and value into weary, parched souls. So that we can not only survive as victims but thrive as a people walking in glorious victory, blazing a trail of freedom for anyone held in chains of injustices, personal failure or loss. So thankful God is all about new beginnings, fresh starts and slates wiped clean.. our past misfortunes merely spring boards of new found hope and deep abounding joy ... it's a privilege to be a fellow sojourner in this path to greater wholeness and liberation. Charles Dickens writes "Reflect on your present blessings every man has many, not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some". Celebrating present and future Heavenly blessings with you
