My New Shoes


We have shoes to fill all the time. This past Sunday at church, my pastor spoke about whose shoes were you going to fill? Essentially, everyone is fulfilling a job, eventually someone will move on from the position and then someone else will come into those shoes. The entire time he was preaching, all I could think about was how I didn’t feel like I was going to fill a pair of shoes already made of responsibilities of someone else. At the end of the service, pastor asked those who were willing to fill shoes to come forward. I went forward and began speaking to God telling Him how I was feeling. (As if He didn’t already know what I was thinking! Cracks me up… haha)  I said, “God, I don’t know if I’m wrong for this but I don’t feel like I’m filling shoes with this vision you have given me, but I feel like I’m going to create a pair of shoes for myself.” As you can imagine my struggle was whether or not I was being to “human” and not enough focus on His will spiritually. By no means do I want to go out of His path for me! After church had concluded, a man told me my talent was more anointed than I could imagine. He also told me he just didn’t think I was going to fill a pair of shoes – but instead create a pair. OH GOSH! I lost it. God had confirmed for me I wasn’t being too “human” but was actually on the path He has for me. And boy!!! Was I excited! Another step in this vision God keeps giving me. A step closer to reaching it!

Hebrews 11:1
Faith assures us of things we expect and convinces us of the existence of things we cannot see.

I know you are probably lost as far as this “vision” I keep speaking about but soon enough a blog will come about that too. I’m just not quite ready! lol

Yesterday, I received two opportunities to further my vision from the Lord. Again, sorry, not going into details yet, but regardless, it’s happening. God is laying out these opportunities in front of me that keep getting larger and larger in size. With that size increase (and blessing increase) comes Satan though. The larger the blessing, the larger the attack. Keeping myself clothed in the Armor of God, my bodily and spiritual protection is soooooooo important. I know I have others out there who are praying for me and with me — you know who you are — and I thank you for your diligence. To my personal prayer partner, I love you tremendously. So much is going on and it’s nice to know I can call anytime and speak with you about my nerves in this process! (and you don’t judge me for being crazy!! haha) To my husband – you support me. What more can I ask for?  God gave me a perfect partner for my life both spiritually, talent and personally.

God is opening doors, times are changing and heading in a different direction. Be prepared, be stealth, and pay attention. When you think God is speaking to you (and remember He doesn’t always do it audibly, it can be done through others, through a program on the radio or TV, through the Bible… the list is endless). Most of all, don’t be scared of it. Every time a new “step” comes along and I must decide to take it or not take it – I’m petrified. (Psalm 56:3 Even when I am afraid, I still trust you.) Petrified because I have no idea where it’s leading to, but excited because I TRUST in God and have FAITH in God and where He is leading me. So should you.

Hebrews 11:7
Faith led Noah to listen when God warned him about the things in the future that he could not see. He obeyed God and built a ship to save his family. Through faith Noah condemned the world and received God’s approval that comes through faith.

Psalm 111:7
The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy.

Romans 1:16
It’s news I’m most proud to proclaim, this extraordinary Message of God’s powerful plan to rescue everyone who trusts him, starting with Jews and then right on to everyone else! God’s way of putting people right shows up in the acts of faith, confirming what Scripture has said all along: “The person in right standing before God by trusting him really lives.”

One thought on “My New Shoes

  1. Shoes are very funny sometimes. It is like when you are a kid and your shoes start to get to tight. You love those shoes…. Your shoes are worn it…. but you know that after a while those old shoes are going to stop you from becoming active because your feet will hurt. Are you this kid that needs to find new shoes? Have you been in the same pair of shoes with your position of ministry because you are scared to let go of the comfort of how they look and where they go? Or maybe you dislike change. Whatever the reason is you stay in your old shoes, remember that when you step out in faith God will provide the new shoes. It is not like in the carnal where we have to go to the store and pick one out only to have to take them home have the blisters pop up a week later. God will bring the shoes to you. He will guide you through the time of newness and help you with the blisters when trying to wear the shoes. When you get to those times in your new shoes when you keep looking at your old shoes and saying to yourself, “I just want to take these new shoes off and put on my old ones because it was easier to wear them.” You remember that if you stay in your old shoes or (old ministry, place in the church, ect.) eventually your shoes will be completely worn out that they will no longer do the job for you or God. When you have been in a position of leadership for a very long time it is easy to get comfortable. We know all the people in the church, the job becomes repeditive, and we as a christian get comfortable. We deciede that we are in controll of our shoes and it is not really nessary if we study Gods word or not. You start to say to yourself, ” Please I have read over fifty books on that subject. I could teach that with my eyes closed.” I want to warn you! The day you stop studying Gods word is the day that you think you know everything that God knows. This is a very sad day. SO! Stand up ask God to move you to bigger and better things for this world and his minisrties. God is in contorl in these last days, and yes we are in the last hour. Like Jade said God is moving fast, powerful, and great in her life. This is just the start of the 7th day that we are entering into. Every believer who in not leagalistic but truly lives there lives for God is going to see a great move of God in these last days. What do I mean about move of God, I mean miracles that where seen in Jesus day. Also, that thing that you have been waiting on God to do in your life or your family members life is going to come to pass. Here is the awsome thing about the 7th day. It is going to happen supernatually fast. No more waiting on God a year or two years for things. It will be like six months! Praise God! But here is the the most important key. We do not live on this earth to suck up all of Gods blessings. We live on this earth to do GODS work. The most important thing in our lives should be God and the vision that one day being with him in heaven. I know that sometimes it is hard to look at it that way as we are flesh and blood but inside us is a spirit and that is the same spirit that Jesus had in him. Im not saying that we should not enjoy ourselves on earth while we are doing Gods work but we should check our heart and make sure it is not all about what we want. Ask yourself am I living in shoes that God wants me in or am I in some old running shoes that I simply FEEL good and I FEEL like I can not let go off them. I promise you this. If God is telling you to fill some new shoes their will be an annointing on those shoes, but if you stay in your old shoes because your are simply to scared then you will never see the fullfillment that God has on your life. Things will come so much easier if you would stop doing your own works and simply REST! Rest in him and his word and let him put the shoes on your feet. After that he will start walking for you.
