Life is like a pair of gorgeous stilettos. Yep, I am using stilettos as an example of our life “walk”!
Imagine finding a pair of the most unbelievable, gorgeous, comfortable pair of stilettos.
They fit perfect, you buy them, and one day get all dressed up real pretty, put on those shoes, you are feelin’ fine! Everything “seems” to look good from the outside, the dress fits flawlessly, you’re having a great hair day, and the makeup is stunning, you are confidently pulled together. But as you go to take a step, your ankle gives in, and collapses, and you start to trip and fall.
We are only as strong as our ankles. If that ankle has a weakness, disappointment sets in, pain and hurt sets in, but you want to utilize your outfit to the fullest. How do you achieve the strength and power to walk in the stilettos? A choice needs to be made, try to walk in the shoes, which only end up hurting you, not only in the ankle, but can lead to foot issues, calve strain, and a whole host of other problems.
Do you see where I am going with this? God has a way of getting our attention, like a bad ankle in a pair of stilettos. But if we try to put the shoes on anyway, only to take fumbled steps, and get hurt even the worse, because we have not taken the time to put on the “sneakers” (God and His Word) and exercise the leg (in our spirit and natural self), strengthening it with prayer, and reading the Word of God, being in fellowship with others who will also help us in our weak areas.
Goal: to learn from our weak area, and become stronger.
Realize, where one person has strength, another person may have struggles, which may very well help them overcome obstacles! And maybe YOU are the only person that can help teach another what you know. In return, your weakness is an opportunity to increase, and improve by allowing God and others to help you! One step at a time!
Take time to strengthen your life in God. Get in a great church, that has a supportive group, good sound Bible teaching, so you can wear the stilettos in life!
Wise people have great power, and those with knowledge have great strength.
The LORD will always lead you. He will satisfy your needs in dry lands and give strength to your bones. You will be like a garden that has much water, like a spring that never runs dry..
[ Friends and Family Give Strength ] Two people are better than one, because they get more done by working together.
He gives strength to those who are tired and more power to those who are weak.
I still think wisdom is better than strength. But those people forgot about the poor man’s wisdom and stopped listening to what he said.
Lord, thank you than in my weakness, you are made strong. It is not in myself that I can conquer this life. It is YOU in me, your Word that completes me and shows me the way; Every day is a new chance to take advantage of seeing life through your eyes that offer wisdom and correction. I praise you now and forever, because I know you have my best interest at heart, I want to be improved and recover from the hurts in life, and live my life to the fullest, I pray you help me, I surrender to your will and what you want me to learn and do. Thank you Jesus for your blood that has already made me complete. Amen!
– Love you Jesus!
