Following His Steps







This scripture was taken from one of my favorite chapters in Job. Although Job was struggling in the midst of his trial, he knew that God was there with him. Job did not stray from God's commands, he valued the word more then the very food he ate! Can you imagine that kind devotion? I love Job's bold declaration of his commitment and faithfulness to follow God's ways no matter what circumstances may come.



"Lord, I pray that no matter how difficult the path becomes, or how dark the night, you will always help me to put my trust in You. I pray also that all of my children and their children as well, will follow closely after you. Let them remain faithful in their walk, obedient to your word, and steadfast to follow your ways."

What a great picture for the verse you chose. It's always so easy for me to read those verses but not always so easy to follow them. That is one of the reasons I like wfw. It encourages.

How adorable! I remember my Daughter's princess days fondly :). You know, she still loves fancy/stylish shoes, only now they are a bit more pricey than the princess shoes were, lol! The verse is perfect for the picture and it's a great verse to tuck in our hearts. Great post :)

When I saw the cute feet I did not think of them as chn's feet...getting too much out of the little girl scene I can tell, but I chuckled thinking how wonderful God is, that He makes the highways level and smooth before us to accomodate such feet.....and if they are little feet....so much more precious.

Tori said...
