If The Shoe Doesn't Fit...

You know that aha moment when you're simply minding your own business doing whatever and then all of a sudden you get a "revelation" of something deeper than what you were originally doing? No? Just me? lol. Either way, that exact thing happened to me recently. And no matter how many times I experience it I'm still just as amazed at God as the time before.

So, I was sitting in Church and my feet began to hurt in the shoes I was wearing. Not because they were necessarily too small (they were actually the same size I always wear), but because of the way these particular shoes were made they fit a little bit more snug. So much so that I eventually had to take them off for a little while. But as I was doing that I started to think of how that discomfort could very easily represent some of us in our daily walks with Christ...

It Is Well

"When peace, like a river, attendeth my way, When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul." -Horatio Spafford


Life can be  is challenging. It's a balance between the highs and the lows. It gets real. It gets rough. But through it all, how many of us can still exclaim "it is well"? Not a pitiful 'I have no other choice' type of it is well, but I'm talking about confidently declaring that no mater what it looks like, no matter what it feels like, no matter what comes your way, you know deep down in your heart that all is truly well.
