I like shoes, but I don't buy everything I see, so when I saw this picture, I thought how I would enjoy coloring it. I don't do this often, but it's nice to do if you are sitting in front of the t.v.. Shoes can tell a lot about a person.

Some women like shoes that are flashy and have a lot of bling. Some like heals, some like flats. Some have old lady shoes like me, because I have bunions, and can't wear heals. Don't you know that I have tried! I will rarely wear shoes that I think are beautiful, but hurt my feet by the end of the day, and into the next.

Women have particular tastes in most things. When it comes to God, the lover of our souls, we want Him, in all of His glory and wonder, we need to prefer Him over other things.  Sometimes we don't feel as if we deserve Him, which is just not true. When we pursue Jesus, He longs to hold us close and hear our heart's cry. I wonder why we have trouble accepting the completeness of His love?

Could guilt be standing in the way? We feel guilty for past sins, and mistakes we made, but if we repent, and turn from these things, they are thrown in to the sea of forgetfulness. I guess we have to forgive ourselves. If the Almighty God of all heaven and earth has released us for our guilt and sin, we ought to grab hold of it and be free! Do we know better than Jesus?

"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery." {Galatians 5:1-2}

If we could see what Jesus sees, with all the spiritual warfare behind the scenes, we would never choose to go back to slavery. Stand! Stand! Stand! Is what I hear my Father saying to me. Don't give any place to the enemy. You can stand too, if you pray, read God's word, have godly fellowship and kept it going on a regular basis. Grow in the things of God, and you will always choose to go the way of our Father. He loves you more than words can say!
