I found out that our friend’s baby took her first steps last night. [1/26/03] Today at church we enjoyed seeing her take a few steps all by herself. We were all so tickled.


At church today, I did something in ministry that I have never done before. It was a real stretch in trusting in the Lord. I experienced His anointing and I was so comforted knowing He was with Me while I was under the spot light. Later I realized the parable, that I too, took my first steps and how tickled heaven was to witness this. They take such delight in us!


Something else happened today that was so funny. The Lord must be talking to us about feet right now. I was in the middle of harvesting my past rhema journals and stopped to take a break. After enjoying a warm shower, I decided to give myself a pedicure. Later, when I came back to harvest rhema, I took off my slippers to enjoy a peek at my soft feet. When I glanced up at my computer screen, I had no idea what would be the next entry!





Today I thought about Gladys Aylward, the missionary who went to China in 1921. Her inroad to the gospel was becoming a government "Foot Inspector" of the Chinese women and girl babies. At that time, the Chinese thought that small feet were an object of beauty so they wrapped babies’ feet to stunt their growth. This caused stumped feet and sad deformities. Gladys was to make sure the women no longer bound their feet. I was thinking that it was quite a parable that speaks of our not having crooked walks, but rather having straight paths in the Lord. Later I was rubbing lotion on my feet and having completely forgotten about those thoughts, I heard the Lord say, "Inspect this!" He has a very funny sense of humor!


Isa 40:3-5 NLT

Fill the valleys and level the hills. Straighten out the curves and smooth off the rough spots. Then the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all people will see it together. The LORD has spoken!"



I AM inspecting your feet. These are parables of your walk in Me. For I have adorned you with the gospel of peace and it is only in My peace that you shall move forward into your calling.


"And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;" (Eph 6:15 KJV)




I was compiling a short series on His "foot" Words (for Ears2Hear) since He has been focusing upon feet lately. I asked the Lord for confirmation. One of the ones I had formatted was about pacing ourselves.

In the mall, we passed an Oriental mother who was running after her little son. He was trying out his new independence in walking and had wildly taken off pushing his stroller as fast as he could. She called him to come back and he kept running! When I looked back to see the result of this adventure, the Mom was hiding behind various booths, in order to keep watch on her son, but she did let him know that she was following. When she finally caught up to him, instead of scolding him, she was all smiles, picking him up and giving him a big hug.

All heaven rejoices as we witness your launching out and coming to Me in new adventures! What joy it gives us to see you willingly trust in My goodness and concentrating on your destination instead of being afraid of falling.


As you find your balance, I want to make sure that your walk in Me will be stable and firm, having no bumps along your way. I want your walk to stay soft and tender, not hard and callused; A little soap for repentance, a little warm rain from My Presence, a little anointing for tenderness, and My shoes of peace for assurance anywhere you go. I AM with you, child, do not worry as I take you to new places. My eye is upon you always, you are not alone.


"Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet; then stick to the path and stay safe. Don't get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil." (Prov 4:25-27 NLT)
