Today I’d like to share with you one of my devotionals that was published in A Cup of Comfort Devotional: Daily Reminders of God’s Love and Grace.
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet
of those who bring good news of peace and salvation,
the news that the God of Israel reigns.
Have you ever awaited the sound of familiar footsteps? You’re so used to their footfall that you know who they are by the sound of their walk.
That’s the way I feel about my husband. Rick suffered terrible injuries in an auto accident many years ago and still walks with what he calls a wobble. One of his feet strikes the ground harder than the other. The distinctive sound tells me he’s on his way down the hall, shopping aisle, or sidewalk and enables me to sense his presence minutes before his actual appearance.
How beautiful are his footsteps to me! His feet and legs had to learn how to walk again, but he persevered in his physical therapy and is walking proof that God performs miracles!
We’re never alone in our pain and frustration because God is always with us, ready to surround us with His comforting presence.
Rest in the comfort that God’s
plans are better than your own.
