Seeing Eye to Eye..........sometimes!
And, as far as that "seeing eye to eye" phrase, here's the thing! I have learned that there is really only one thing that matters...Jesus and who He is and what He did for us. If I step into some one's footprints for a part of my path, there might be things that don't exactly flow with what I believe. As long as Jesus is the center and the core of that footprint, then I am in the right place! I have learned much, and grown much by walking with people who are different than me as far as the "side light" things that seem to divide the Christian community. One of the saddest things is having one part of the Christian Church degrade or discredit another for one of these "not central" issues. I think that has weakened the power that we have in Jesus. So I am not afraid to talk about ALL of the footprints that have been my path. I am thankful for how I have grown and learned from each of them.
Well, I think that is enough to chew on for today. I am sure that some of you may be thinking "what is she talking about?" or "is she totally nuts?". I am convinced that this is exactly what I need to be writing about right now. This is the beginning of a new year in the Jewish Calendar. And this year is a year of double blessings. I am trusting that if you follow along with me, we will both be surprised and amazed by what Jesus is revealing to us.
Jesus, thank you for what you are beginning to speak through this footprint vision. Thank you for the reminder today that all that is really important is Jesus...who you are and what you have done for us. Holy Spirit, please continue to speak to us all as we seek to go deeper into the path we are following. Thank you for grace and love and truth. Amen
